    no, It comes right back after I let off of throttle and it seems to look good at carb. If I give just a touch of gas it stays reeved up?

Is it the cable snaging up or is it frayed,,, it could be that it just needs a good bit of TLC,,,by way of an oil can? try a fuw drops of thin oil down the cable and work it to see if it frees off,, if it dont fit a new cable fast,
there will come a time when you slam the throtel closed and it go's stumping on ,,,bad news that is!

Throttle sticks

Has the throttle and return cables lately (like ever) been lubed/oiled?

Also, put some grease on the end of the handlebar where the throttle sleeve rides.

When its really cold,the throttle sticks and excelerates!

I would have the throttle body professionaly cleaned first. There is a radiator cooling hose that runs to the throttle body that may be plugged and causing the throttle plate to frost and stick.
Have the throttle body cleaned and the cables inspected, that should take care of your problem.
Good luck.

My throttle sticking, the car has been sitting for a year. When I start it the throttle gets stuck open. Is there an easy way to fix the throttle cable from sticking?

Your best bet is to keep working the throttle. You can *try* to spray a lube such as Tri-Flo onto the braided cable near the end of the sleeve, and see if that helps with working it.
I also suggest taking the throttle cable off of the throttle body, and manually work the throttle body to make sure it's not what's sticking.

Throttle sticking on 2001 dodge intrepid

I would spray some WD-40 on the throttle cable, also, you may need to clean the throttle body and throttle plate, sometimes there will be some carbon build up that will make the throttle plate stick in the throttle body, Gumout and an old toothbrush works good.

I was using my cruise control and when I released it I lost my gas petal only could coast. The cable had come out of the track. Is there something I can do to it to prevent it from happening again.

if the cable came out of the groove in the throttle it usually points to a partially sticking throttle, when it sticks and you release the pedal the cable is left slack and sticking out, when the throttle loosens the cable can come out of its track, make sure the throttle moves smoothly - that the cable runs smoothly in its sheath and clean the entire mechanism with a toothbrush and some alcohol/petrol, when its all clean lightly oil the mechanism and wipe up any excess oil.
If it sticks and does this again I would suspect the throttle is worn and needs replacing. But service the throttle (clean/oil) first and see if its any better.
Theres a possibility the throttle could stick open, if this happens (dangerous!!!) turn the key off one click to kill the engine but not lock the steering. Have it in mind before you test that the throttle could stick so you're not shocked if it happens and can turn the key one click without being in a panic.

My 1998 toyota camary gas pedal sticks at the top when in stop and go traffic. I have to tap it to get it unstuck and it works fine then it will stick again. I have lubricated it inside and out and not...

disconect the cable at the motor and work the throttle valve by hand checking to see if the throttle valve itself is sticking or the cable if the throttle valve is sticking you must remove the rubber hose that goes from the aircleaner box to the intake plenum where the valve is located then procede to spray carb cleaner inside where the throttle valve is in order to remove carbon deposits inside the plenum bore and all around the throttle valve bore itself. If the cable itself is sticking replace the cable, there is most likely rust deep inside the cable and its housing that can't be reached with lubricant.

1977 Suzuki TS185 throttle sticks

Could be 2 things to look at first.1 the idle adjusting screw has been screwed in to far and is holding the throttle slide open.The other is an air leak between the carby and the motor resulting in the air/fuel mixture being to lean.This would cause the revs of the engine to be to high.Check these 2 things.Hope this helps

My gas pedal is sticking in my 2000 camry

This is due to the throttle flap sticking within the throttle body. The throttle flap is operated by the accelerator cable which turns the semicircular control on the throttle body. Remove the air hose to get access to the throttle body. Use carburetor cleaner to clean out where the flap sits in the body. There'll be lots of black gunk to remove with cleaner on a clean cloth. Reassemble and no more sticking accelerator.
