Sticking Accelerator

5

Asked by Aug 06, 2010 at 04:40 PM about the 1997 BMW Z3 2 Dr 2.8 Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The accelerator on my 1997 Z3 sometimes sticks in the up position when I'm stopped at a light, or when accelerating from coasting. I have to hit it hard with my foot to push it down to accelerate. Any ideas?

You can try to isolate the problem. Disconnect the accelerator from the trottle body and see if the problem is with the throttle body or the cable from the pedal. Michael

BMW has gone "fly-by-wire" for quite some time even then! For the issue of sticky accelerator pedal, post the question on a Toyota forum for expert advice. LOL.
