    I have a 2000 cavalier with same problem. It is not the throttle cable! It revvs up imidiately to full throttle and I have to shut it off as soon as I start it. I hit a couple of potholes when it started and had to kill the motor and pull over.

1984 F-150 accelerator stuck to floor when trying to start. Will not start because accelerator pump is stuck wide open as well? The truck has been setting awhile. Thank You

The throttle is stuck, may be from corrosion from sitting. Find where its stuck, correct that and you should be OK. When the throttle is wide open, the choke plate will not be closed fully, and if you can't pump the throttle, the accelerator pump can not function (the pump must stroke to work)

You should not need to pump the throttle. That does not have any effect on starting the engine on a fuel injected car.
How do you un-stick the throttle ?

I have a 2009 ford focus 2.0 with a etb scanner says throttle stuck closed AND throttle stuck wide open, accel pedal completely inop.

You will probably need tor replace the throttle position sensor....TPS... You can check and make sure the wiring is connected...Easy to find it is located on the side of your throttle body...usually on the right hand side, or toward the front of the car on your engine....

Runs wide open when started

thats a carb right? (many are modified, this old, vast numbers) send photos for best help.
well, close the throttle valve in the bottom of the carb.
if is stuck open, then find what is stuck ,that is remove linkage until its not. bingo now you know what was stuck.
the throttle is just a very simple butterfly valve, (wiki that)
they can be closed 100% and the engine can not even run.
sure can.

1990 lincoln continental throttle stuck wide open

make sure nothing is caught holding the plate open,disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle valve at the intake.if the throttle closes then i would say you have a problem with the cable itself and will need to be replaced.make sure there is nothing caught at the gas pedal that is holding open.if the throttle stays open then you may have a problem with the throttle shaft(dirt build up),bent shaft,damaged throttle plate,loose plate(has screws holding plate in position)on the could also be a bad tps sensor(throttle position sensor)that is damaged internally and needs replacing,as it is fasten to the opposite of the throttle shaft from the cable.if you remove the screws(note position of sensor and screws on sensor)and remove the tps and the throttle is not stuck then this is probably the problem and needs replacing.
