After floorin' my MKIV and letting off the gas pedal, I have to tap on the pedal to loosen it. Weird thing is, it doesn't stay at throttle. It's just stuck.. So I'm not sure what it is. Please help.

My gas pedal sticks too, but not after i floor it, only at stops. I really hate it, and people who ride with me think i can't drive. The light will turn green and i'll just be sitting there, but i'm pressing the gas. Then, all of a sudden, it breaks loose and i slam their head into the seat. Any suggestions as to where to lube or something.

lube up the throttle cable some, and if that doesnt help my guess is to spay some wd40 or something up where the peddle's pivot point it.

Are you talking about up under the floorboard, or actually in the engine bay? From what i got out of it, it sounds like you are talking about under the floorboard, which is a shot.

i did in the engine bay and used some wd40 on the inside. im not sure which helped but whichever it was seemed to fix the problem so far at least.

Now that'd be nice to see. I haven't been in a show of force with a bunch of other Supras since the summer. Maybe in a couple of weeks I can make it, I'm in Maryland now just above DC.

I'm over here off Salem Road and Lynhaven intersection, behind the Super Walmart.. I have a NA red one.. My Vr4 BPU is black .. Matter of fact, I was taking the trash out and this guy dave in a teal supra came by to check my car out cuz his friend told him I got one. That's funny cuz my fellow 3000Gt's don't have this kind of comradely. ANywaz.. i've only seen a couple too.. the yellow NA.. red TT (Wells).. white TT (ZAP INC) ..Teal FMAX NA and I saw a silver one at the car wash..

Single turbo.. I haven't heard of anyone with that work done, in VA Beach. That'll be cool to see. feel free to email me.. [email protected]

i'm here in DC now, so when I get back to the beach this weekend, I'm going fix that damn gas pedal.
