My '98 Camry's throttle sometimes sticks. It only happens after you have accelerated and let off the gas. It sticks where the cable is attached to the intake.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there,

With the engine off remove the large intake hose from the throttle body, using a goo quality throttle body cleaner, carefully spray and clean the throttle butterfly and in side the throttle body, what is happening is that fuel residue is gumming up the butterfly this is a common problem and cleaning with a throttle body cleaner is the normal fix.
