You need to take off the air cleaner tube, and get Throttle Body Cleaner, not Carburator Cleaner, and clean the throttle plate, with a rag, get all the carbon off of the plate and around it.

Hodo I fix a sticking accelorater on a 1995 ford aerostat


check the throttle cable for binding or fraying, then check the movement of the throttle shaft with the cable unhooked as they can wear and cause binding. if the cable is worn replace if the throttle shaft is binding replace assembly. check to make sure the gas pedal is not binding as well.

The throttle body needs cleaned its gumed up.Take throttle body off and spray and wipe the inside of the throttle body with a can of throttle body cleaner this should free it up.If that didn't help then you need a throttle position sensor.Reset the computer after any sensor is changed.

Carb is sticking.


car and start it up and try to push the gas pedal and it doesn't move. Perhaps it comes free with a bit of coaxing, or force, but, over time, this problem is certain to get worse.Or, far more frightening, you're on the freeway and push the pedal to pass a slow moving truck. When you take your foot off the pedal it doesn't come back up and your car goes speeding down the highway.
Having a sticking gas pedal can be a very dangerous situation and you shouldn't drive your car if you're experiencing these kinds of problems. However, it may be an easy fix once you figure out why it is sticking. The gas pedal to throttle connection is actually quite simple. The pedal acts as a lever that moves the throttle able in and out. The throttle cable pushes a small lever that opens and closes the throttle. Any problems with the gas pedal is certain to be in one of these three parts.
The first step to diagnose the cause of a sticking gas pedal is to remove the breather so you can get to the carburetor or the throttle body on a fuel injected vehicle. Once the breather is removed you will be able to access the cable linkages. Disconnect the cable from the throttle. You can now move the throttle manually to see if the problem is there or if it is in the cable or the pedal.
If the throttle moves freely the issue is most likely somewhere else. If the throttle is the location of the problem you will want to clean that. Depending on whether you have a carbureted or a fuel injected vehicle you will want to make sure you get the appropriate spray cleaner from your parts dealer. Fuel injector cleaner won't get all of the stuff that might be causing problems on a carburetor but carburetor cleaner will leave residues that can damage a fuel

1999 dodge neon gas pedal won't accelerate sometimes unless you push down really hard on pedal


Try cleaning the throttle body. Use a throttle body cleaner and do not flood the throttle body with the cleaner. You will have to open the throttle up and spray around the butterfly. It most likely carbon buildup and causing the butterfly to stick when you accelerate. A couple of short sprays will be fine, clean with a cloth. You will see a lot of black buildup flow out of the throttle body. After you wipe dry, let the intake hose stay off for a few minutes for the throttle to dry out.

Vaccum hose diagram for 88 chevy truck. I put a 350 motor in my 88 chevy 1500 truck from a 95 suburban. I cant get the throttle body to stop idaling to high. I may need a vaccum line diagram for this motor...


it may not be a vacumn leak from a line,check the throttle shaft for movement,for example,i had a 89 1 ton 350 and my throttle shaft was moving around a lot and in order to keep it from idling high,i had to kick the throttle pedal.But also check the idle air control valve,which is the round sensor on the side of the throttle body.

Accelerator sticks


Take off the throttle body (very easy to do) and use carb cleaner to clean off the gunk. You have to clean both sides of the butterfly.
