Exclamation Slipping and getting stuck...

I have a Mercury Topaz '92 and we have replaced just about EVERYTHING on this car...lol. The only thing thats causing an issue now is that the accelirater pedal gets stuck ( you cant move it to the ground) and then the RPM's red line and you lose power. We have to slam on the pedal to get the car "unstuck". It seems to me it could be the pedal cables or the joints maybe are gooped up or there is something else but its causing a danger when pulling out into traffic :( We have to pull over and switch into gears just run through them before the car behaves like its supposed to. Much help would be good - Thank You - Allison

Re: Slipping and getting stuck...

Sounds like either the cable is frayed or corroded and getting stuck, or the throttle body needs cleaning. I would suspect the latter. Un-hook the cable and see if you can get the throttle plate to stick. (Engine does not need to be running)
