Default Sudden Acceleration

I just purchased a 1992 Toyota Camry in excellent condition bu I only
encountered one problem. While driving the car it experienced a heavy
acceleration as if I was stepping on the accelerator and not letting go. I
tried stepping several times on the accelerator itself to see if the
condition would stop but it did not. I eventually had to parke the car and
open the hood where I then observed the throtle valve completely opened and
had to manually bring it back to its position normal position and it then
stopped the problem. I then stepped on the accelerator again and once
again it did the same thing, the RPM's were almost off the chart since it
was reving so high. The throttle body of the vehicle is new as it was
replaced by the previous owner thinking this was the problem but obviously
it was not. What can this be , any ideas? I kind of think that it might be
the throttle cable getting stuck but just want to make sure. Thanks in
advance for any assistance.

Disconnect your intake hose and have someone step on the gas while you
look inside and see what happens to your throttle valve and cables
around and everything

And if it does get stuck, go to the dealer, get some Toyota Throttle
Plate Cleaner (about $6), and clean the throttle plate with an old
toothbrush and this cleaner.

I tried both this one and a generic one from Pep Boys (safe for oxygen
sensors and catalytic converters, blah blah) and I noticed that the
Toyota one dissolved black crap from my toothbrush better than the
generic one...
