Question about 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
Hi guys, I had a 90's vintage pathfinder with the same problem. It was due to the crappy gas we burn now. It tends to leave deposits in the throttle body. Before you go to the trouble of a expensive fix try some gas additive for cleaning intakes. Unless you have issues with the cables then that should work. Cheers Bill

It will have to be lubed, but first find out what is sticking. Disconnect the cable from the pedal and work the pedal if it is free go under the hood and disconnect the other end work the throttle is it free. If the throttle and pedal are free the cable is binding or going bad. The best thing to do is replace the cable.

where the throttle cable meets the throttle body is a tiny set screw for idle adjustment. sometimes it gets gunked up. remove set screw and using a emory cloth sand edge of set screw. remember to mark where the set screw is before removing
