1999 CHEV SILVERADO K1500 135000 MILES, THE GAS PEDAL SEEMS TO BE STUCK OR FROZEN WHEN I TRY TO PULL OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY. I PRESS HARDER AND IT MOVES FREELY, UNFORTUNATLY MY SHORT DRIVEWAY LEADS DIRECTLY ONTO A BUSY HIGHWAY. I HAVE LOOKED FOR ANY POSSIBLE OBSTRUCTIONS, NO LUCK, THIS IS MY HUSBANDS TRUCK SO I DONT DRIVE IT OFTEN BUT ALL REPAIRS ARE MY PROBLEM. THE WEIRD THING IS THAT THE 1995 FORD EXPLORER HE HAD BEFORE THIS HAD A VERY SIMMILAR PROBLEM, BUT I COULD SEE WHERE IT WAS CATCHING. OH AND ONCE YOUR DRIVING IT DOESNT SEEM TO STICK
Do you

Emory cloth? U should never use that on a tb, the TB has a protective coating of silicone that will keep it from piting using emory is not good. They have special sprays for TB cleaning use that an a old tooth brush.

Make shure it's a type you can use TB cleaner on. Some cars like fords loose their coating if sprayed! On those just use a rag. And WD40 the springs were the wire goes
