Question about 1993 Ford Festiva

3 Answers

Accelerator sticks at start off - not cable problem - it was replaced and problem still exists. you have to push against the peddle quite hard to get going. Also revs when you stop at traffic-lights or junction remain high 1500, and sometimes it takes 10 - 15 seconds to drop back to idle.

The high-idle sensor often malfunctions on those cars. I would check that. If you have a carbureted model, then you have a vacuum actuated sensor on the firewall that sends a vacuum signal to the dashpot on the carburetor that raises the idle speed.

I presume that this vehicle is EFI. you need to inspect the throttle plate area. When actuated (engine off) there, does it bind. Sometimes plates become loose and bind, sometimes there is a buildup in the area that can be cleaned. Do not tolerate this condition, aside from poor drivability, it will eventually become dangerous.

Sounds like the high idle sensor may need replacement or its possible remove it and clean it as well as the possibility of a vacuum line is wearing out from dry-rot or even a intake leak is present but most likely the high idle sensor located near the accelerator throttle body on either side look for the obvious to start with first

2007 grand caravan , gas peddle sticks really bad upon depressing . it is not constant but quite often


make sure that the floor mat is not causing the problem,i know it sounds not possible but it has happened, then check to see if at the intake were the cable is hooked to the throttle valve if something is causing the cable to stick(something rubbed through outer sheath causing it to bind) make sure nothing is pushing on the cable to cause it to kink and bind,then check the throttle valve to see if it is the cause of the sticking,unhook the cables and move the throttle by hand slowly through the arc and see if you feel binding or catching.if it feels like it`s binding then the throttle plate area needs to be thoroughly cleaned and rechecked.check the motion of the gas pedal slowly for binding.if nothing is noticed then it is possible that the throttle cable is worn and needs to be replaced

Hello, Twice in the past few weeks, the gas pedal has become stuck after pushing it in all the way to accelerate. Not sure what it might be. Will I need to see a mechanic?


FIrst you need to find out why your throttle is binding at WOT before you pay for a mechanic $85.00 an hour that you can do you self. If you have floor mats, make sure that it's not bunched up by the accelerator peddle causing the it to bind to the floor. If you do not have floor mats, work your way from the peddle to the cable and see if there are any worn parts from the peddle to the firewall. Also inspect the cable and the bushing at the firewall where the cable goes through the firewall, once out to the engine bay, follow the cable to the throttle body and look for any binding to the cable. Move the throttle to the WOT position and see if the cable is binding or the throttle body it self is binding. If the cable is worn or binding, replace the cable assembly from the accelerator peddle to the throttle body. If it's the throttle body, your going to have to replace that since it's cheaper then repairing and you have new parts. Good luck and keep me posted be glad to help you save some money.
