Carb will not idol down 383 4 barrel

Throttle body butterflies not closing correctly. Check that throttle shaft moves freely, check that the accelerator cable moves freely, check the throttle return spring tension, check carb base and intake manifold for vacuum leaks.

Throttle will not return to idle & if on highway have to stop to manually lever throttle back manually for town driving.Cable not jammed.

Hi,you say cable not jamed have you undone the cable and tryed to move it back and forwould it could be fraid in the sleave that the cable runs through,or if not that then it could be the butterfly inside the carb which is worn and getting stuck and not shutting off properly,hope this was some help,all the best.

I have 1998 Toyota coaster with stuck throttle, cable is free

remove the air cleaner hose from the throttle and open with hand. Spray carb and throttle cleaner on clot and using long nose player clean the gunk from inside. Don't spray straight inside will backfire and do more damage
Good luck

Your throttle cable play maybe out of specification. You may also want to apply some cable grease to your throttle cable to ensure it will not seized.

Sticky gas pedal on a 2000 528i

You need to lube throttle cable in engine compartment at throttle body. Also check if it's kinked or binding but usually a good shot of carb cleaner will silver you sticking problem. If that doesn't solve it, spray carb cleaner into throttle body, might be gummed up. You'll need to disassemble air intake hose to do this.

Sticking accelerator

Two major reasons for this are dirty throttle body bore (clean with carb cleaner) and frayed throttle cable (replace cable)

I have a 95 Lincoln Continetal and I can't push the gas peddle down without force. When i pull the cable from the engine the peddle moves fine. Also when I try to move the throttle it will not move.

Hi if the cable is moving freely than it will be either the throttle body jammed or the throttle pedal has ceased, also check nothing has got jammed behind or above the pedal, hope this helps

1986 corvette 700R4 transmission will not down shift from overdrive to third during hard acceleration. Transmission recently rebuilt new throttle valve, TV cable working and adjusted properly. Help?

Are you sure the TV ( trans shift cable at the throttle valve) cable is correctly adjusted?? Without line pressure readings, I can only guess that the D3/Part throttle check ball is missing, if it is a trans problem
If the TV is correct, I am assuming that the TV cable is pulled tight at WOT.
Did you check the throttle (ACCEL) cable to be sure that the carb goes wide open when your accel pedal is on the floor?? This must be done with someone in the car and a second person looking at the carb. Without doing this, you do not know if you have WOT. Without WOT, the trans will not de-tent and shift down.
