Most throttle sticking problems are caused by either a kinked or broken cable or the cables routing through the frame is being caught on something. Thats my experiance. Hope this helps

Throtle gets stuck wide open i did tps worked for a day always pump to start runs ruff then goes bamm gets stuck wide open help me


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 ?

Why is throttle stuck wide open?


Could be a couple of things. could be a return spring sticking on the carb, or the throttle cable has frayed and sticking on. I've added the breakdown manual for you.

Rpm goes 5000 after running a few miles


OMG, its got the Toyota Disease. next is Medial and lawyers.

i think you mean to post with foot off the the throttle, in say DRIVE
the engine races to 5000 RPM , total idle failure,
bad idle controls,
bad idle can happen on any car and can be caused by 2 things.
and is dangerous, (you can cut the key to stop any engine)

1: the throttle is really stuck. check the linkage end to end.
2: the IDLE control valve, ISC is stuck open. clean or replace it.

the cars ECU does all it can to prevent this, but can not help
if there are hard failures. ISC or throttle linkages failure.
there is a throttle return spring too, that can break (very rare)
the throttle bore can get so dirty that it can stick open.
on some cars, NO ENGINE STATE
Speed density engines, (MAP) will race for ANY VACUUM air leaks
to the intake plenum , (cracked hoses, etc)

Gas pedal gets stuck and keeps the car going cant stop without turning the car off


dont drive it. find the cause and fix it now.
Hot and cold engine or BOTH>?
1995 Tracker, no tranny , no 4wd , on engine options stated.
Exact high RPM in neutral, not stated...... 1500 is normal cold.
keeps going in Neutral. (nah , you have 5 ways to stop any car.
key, hand brake, foot brake and neutral. and with 4wd, 1 more neutral.
keep that in mind driving any car.
this car has up to 3 throttle cables that can stick. and more!

1: floor mats hit the pedal>? ala. Toyota style (lawsuits)
2: the three cables are, throttle. , cruise and A/T transmission kick down cable. if car is M/T and no cruise it has 1 cable.
so disconnect it, throttle fixed? (disconn,. 1 by 1, bingo?

no cure?, then its not the pedal , you meant just high idle.
yes, replace the cable or bad parts three.
ok say its not the cables.. (tests proved that)
the 95 came with 2 engines, 8valves and 16valves,
they work differently (8v love so race, 16v loves to stall)

1: ISC Stuck open, common.
2: 8v, any air leaks at all , will cause super high idle speeds.
3: throttle valve in the throttle body is stuckopen (gunk) or the return spring broken (very very rare the latter,in fact never heard of one breaking)
4: IAC (thermal idle control stuck open ,(my 97 was). and lots more.
5: on the 16v it takes 2 failures. to make high idle.
gross rich running engine (cold engine its normal) and any air leak
once hot the engine can not race unless there is huge overfueling
and an air leak.
6: the 8v has this device on the side of the throttle body.
called a dash pot. its just a fast idle vacuum servo.
if stuck open the engine will scream full time....
7: ECU stuck in limphome, can cause too high idle speeds.

we need to know which engine
http://www.fixkick.com/find-parts.html
8v or 16v first.
then does the idle race hot or cold or both (engine temperatures)
if it races , then how fast?, RPM the dash tachometer tells you that.

it can be as simple as a 50cent hose cracked.
to a dead ISC. (idle speed control) IAC is thermal idle air controller.
the IAC must be closed on a hot engine,
if the the engine never gets hot,it will scream full time.

I think the accelerator for vento scooter is stuck and when it shuts off makes a weird noise


You should know it if the accelerator (throttle) is stuck. If the throttle moves freely and the engine responds, it's not stuck. If the engine doesn't respond to input from the throttle it needs to be thoroughly checked from the throttle assembly on the handlebars to the carburetor. A corroded, kinked, or frayed cable can cause the throttle to stick. DO NOT RIDE WITH A STUCK THROTTLE! If it does hang wide open, hit the kill switch immediately and sort the issue out before trying to start the scooter again.

Wide open as in wide open throttle?? You mean the engine is racing? Something is wrong with the throttle controls, or the throttle valve in the carburetor may be sticking open. Look down the carb throat. At its base will be the throttle valves-"butterfly" valves just like the choke valve on top of carb. The throttle valve should be closed at rest, or at idle, or when gas pedal is not moved. Rotate the throttle lever on the carburetor by hand (when gas pedal is pressed down, the throttle is rotated). The throttle valve at the bottom of the carb should open and close with the throttle lever.
If the valve is sticking, spray some carburetor cleaner down it, and spray the outside clean, too. Work the throttle back and forth to make sure it is free to move.
For a high idle, have the carburetor adjusted. Timing should be checked, too-that can cause a high idle, but wouldn't cause it to go wide open.
Let us know what you find. Good luck.

How can i get the rest of the bearing out of the control arm


What are we working on? Most races can be driven out from the ooposite side by evenly tapping on the exposed surface of the race. It is only about1/8 unch wide but that's how its done.
