Default 2000 Camry Accelerator Sticks

I have a 2000 Camry that has an accerlator that sticks. When I'm at a stop
light and go to start off I have to press down on the gas pedal really hard
because it is stuck in the idle position. It kind of pops loose and then
acclerates normally. I have a friend that has a 95 camry that does the same
thing. I can spray the spring and accerlator linkage under the hood and it
helps but not for long. Can someone tell me what I need to do? Thanks in
advance.

Ed

================================================== =============
Common problem Ed, easy to solve.
The throttle butterfly valve is sticking inside the throttle body.
The PCV valve venting engine "blow by" to the intake can cause
accumulation of residue mostly around the back side of the throttle
plate, causing the sticking you describe.
Get some sensor safe aerosol carburetor cleaner, (Berryman B12 Chemtool
is my favorite), some rags, a toothbrush and a 10 mm wrench.
Loosen the single clamp at the large black air hose entering the
throttle body and pull the hose off to one side.
Spray cleaner around front and back of the throttle valve and brush the
surrounding area. Wipe dry with the rags and reattach the air intake.
You're done.
=========
If you want the alternate method. The dealer will probably remove the
throttle body for a more thorough cleaning, but that costs quite a bit
more. If they do the full throttle body service as described in the
manual they will also be making some adjustments which can help the car
run more smoothly, such as cleaning the vacuum ports to the EGR
modulator located further back in the throttle body bore, and adjusting
the throttle position sensor using a thickness gauge and continuity
tester. There's also an adjustment for a vacuum operated throttle
stop - a small threaded rod with a lock nut.
==========
If you wanted to minimize recurrence you could consider fully synthetic
engine oil like Mobil 1 and the Red Line complete fuel system cleaner.
Ask for more information if you're interested. The simple cure is $2
for carb cleaner and you're done. :?)
