What I would recommend is that you disconnect the throttle cable and check the movement of each part. Make sure the cable is not getting hung up and moves freely as well as the pedal. With the cable disconnected from the throttle body, move the throttle body linkage by hand to see if it hangs up.


Ok thank you buddy I'll give it a try
