Q: Gas pedal sticking

asked by on

My gas pedal is sticking.

A: I have seen this issue before. Your gas ped...

I have seen this issue before. Your gas pedal is connected to the throttle plate via a cable. If the throttle plate becomes dirty, it will get stuck and harder to move. You will feel this in the gas pedal. The repair is rather simple and doesn't require much more than a thorough cleaning of the throttle body. A mechanic such as one from YourMechanic should be able to help you take care of this. If throttle bodies get dirty enough, they can keep the car from starting.
