Does anyone know the cure for a sticking accelerator pedal?

Mine is particularly bad at low speeds around town - causing the car to jolt.

Is it likely to be a problem inside the car with the pedal or under the bonnet?

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards

make sure that no carpet or sound profing is in the way if needed cut it away..if that doesnt work try a new cable.

frayed cable. Had this when I bought my first Alfa - 164 TS.

St Leonard's Motors (a main dealer) told me the jerkiness was normal & probably because the car hadn't been used much & needed lubing.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try and have a look at it at the weekend.

I've also not yet managed to find a main dealer in the south east thats worthy of a recommendation!

Regards

(p.s. does anyone know how much a thottle cable is and how easy it is to fit - is it something best left to a garage?)

Hi paul,if you look at the cable at the throttle body end where the cable is bare, u should see a thin white plastic sleeve inside the black sleeve,this came out all the way on me on a 93 155 and caused my cable to stick.I cut it off and it cured the problem.Good luck

I also had a sticky pedal with my 2.0 16v 38k miles. All that was needed was to grease the pedal arm throu the two plastic support/guides up in the footwell.
