What would cause a sticking throttle in cold weather and how do I fix it cheaply?

Asked by Feb 17, 2007 at 02:15 PM about the 1994 Toyota Camry XLE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When the weather is far below freezing my gas pedal doesn't return after depressing it, meaning that it's pretty tough to drive when it's really cold.  Any ideas how to fix it?

Hello, The sticking gas pedal problem was very common in Camrys of the 80's. (Doesn't that sound like a VH1 special? But I digress...) The recommended action then was to clean the throttle body. This is still the best place to start for this kind of problem. Just do so carefully, so as not to knock anything else out of whack. Best of luck! CarGrrl
