Default My gas pedal is sticking

When I "step on it" with my truck my gas pedal sticks and scares the hell outta me. but I have to push it for it to go a decent mph.... (I have some engine issues im fixing)
But could it just need oiling or do you think there is something worse? Just wanted your opinion.

Try cleaning your throttle body. My moms expedition did this. Had a bunch of junk in the throttle body. Cleaned it and it was good after that.

The most common cause of the gas pedal sticking is hanging on the carpet or floor mats, at least that's what I've seen. That would be the first thing I would check. If that's not it then check the throttle body where the cable connects. Move it by hand and see if you can feel any sticking.

Average response for a guy: 1 hour

Average response for a girl: 5 minutes

Lol reminds me of the tv show what would you do?

They did a bit on steeling a bicycle.

White dude: got a moderate amount of people saying it was wrong.

Black guy: high amount of people pissed and called the cops

White girl: guy ignores wife to help her.

Lol..

Anyway,

A normal person that ask a question on here usually gets chewed out, doesn't get a fast response, and gets smartass remarks.

You on the other hand, being a girl, received no smartass comments, fast response time and havn't been chewed out.

Its just interesting how people respond to certain things.

I did not intend to offend anyone. Just pointing out the obvious things in life.

You shouldn't receive any. I hope not :-\.

Xbox wise your getting chewed out buy guys who live their moms, or under aged know-it-alls. Hard to find anyone on xbox live with a sense of maturity and humility. Keep giving em hell :-)

Any luck with the gas pedal yet?

Like what was already said, check under the hood and operate the linkage by hand to see where it is binding, if needed, have someone else push on the pedal while you watch under the hood.
