99 park ave throttle sticks at 2200rpm randomly
hey guys, i have had this issue very randomly over the past year or so. usually it would happen on long road trips to memphis after i had cut off cruise control and was pulling off the highway. yesterday, it happened on the way to work. (no cruise control utilized). this causes me some concern, especially going light to light.
what happens is ill be driving along, not realize the throttle is even stuck till im "coasting" at 45mph, or go to slow down from over 45mph. the car will try to keep itself at whatever amount of throttle is at 2200rpm(pulling the pedal back or smashing it to the floor does not fix this or make it any worse), making it a royal pita to stop in any reasonable amount of time. a dead stop in drive the car is at 1500rpm.
its also worth noting that if you turn the car off, and turn it back on you have about a 75% chance of it idleing at 500 rpm like it should starting it up just 2 seconds after you shut it off. the other 25% it goes right back to 2200. i would try to take off the intake tube and look at the butterfly valve when this happens, but sitting in front of a car at 2200 rpm with a nut driver to defend myself with and noone in the drivers seat makes me uneasy.
can anyone shed some light as to what might be causing this other than the obvious stuck cable which ive already checked? thanks alot!
