View Full Version : Whoah....Throttle stuck on me!

Can anyone help me? The throttle stuck on me twice now. The first time, all I had to do was tap the gas and it fixed the problem. The second time, every time I tapped the gas, it revved higher. I tried turning the car on and off a few times and that didnt help. I eventually had to move b/c I was at a stop sign, so when I SLOWLY engaged the clutch it fixed the problem. Can anyone diagnose this? What should I check and where are these checkpoints located? I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Serious problem. First thing I'd check is the throttle cable, body, and linkage. With the car off, push the linkage the full range of it's end to end limit and see if it hangs up. Look for obvious cracks in the cable sheath and crud in the linkage and throttle body. Clean moving parts and R/R if necessary.
