EXCELERATOR STICKING

1999 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 135, 00 miles

I just recently bought this from a friend of mine and when I drove it home the excelerator stuck. I stopped at a stop light and when I pushed on the excelerator the pedal would not move. I sprayed some lubricant up under the interior side of the excelerator spring and cable where it goes through the fire wall and around the outside area of the trottle components (cable, springs) topside of the engine. Could the trottle body have deposits inside causing this to occur?
Also my daughter said when she drove this, the excelerator moved but the motor stayed idled, and pushed the pedal two-four times before the rpm's came up.
Thank you.

The most common is the throttle body
try to clean it
that may help a bit
you may need to replace it
