Help Sticking throttle on 1990 Spider

I have a 1990 Spider LHD and the throttle sticks when trying to accelerate. when you get past the resistance by pushing it to the floor its fine however its unbearable in traffic .
it seems to be sticking under the inlet manifold and sparaying easing oil on it frees it for a while but im wondering is the oil just attracting dirt and causing it to stick and should i just clean the assembly down with diesel or something? any help would be great thanks
