Hello everyone, I hope someone can help me out. I have a 1991 Ford Explorer XLT. Sometimes the gas pedal wants to stick when I take off. I am afraid I am going to hit something when I have to press down on it hard to get it to go, because of course then it jumps forward or backward depending on the why I am parked. Any idea what the problem may be. Your help would be much appreciated.

also make sure the pedal isn't getting hung up on the carpet or floor mat

Pedal Sticks on Take Offs

Welcome to this forum! Lubricate the throttle cable linkage as well as the moving parts on the throttle body.

Thank you so very much, will get the husband to check this out. I really appreciate the help!
