A condition may develop where the accelerator pedal sticks and is not smooth. This can be caused by carbon build up on the throttle shaft or throttle body cleaner was used which removed the special coating on the throttle shaft. Our technicians tell us that if this is the case the throttle body should be replaced.

After placing into drive to drive out of the car wash the accelerator pedal stuck on full throttle. The car shot out of the car wash like a bullet!! I slammed on the brakes however it hardly slowed it down. Had to slam it into park to stop!!! Very scary!!!!
sounded like l had the foot on the brake and throttle at the same time.Very scarey as first time l nearly rammed the back of a car and second time l mounted a naturestrip and was headed for a car on the other side... l am in AUSTRALIA and mileage is in kilometres
