could be a sticky cable. I would go to your local parts store and get some powder graphite. Put some on each end of the cable and work the cable back and forth. If it is just sticky this should help. If it is a frayed cable it must be replaced. could also be a sticky throttle assembly, but I would start with the cable.

If the cable appears to be in good shape, a dirty throttle body can cause that.

Carbon build up in the throttle body.

dirt and gunk in linkages will cause accelerator to stick get some wd40 and spray on all moving parts if accelerator has a cable, renew cable as it will be clogged and rusted inside casing, making it stick

It depends on what "stick" you mean. Stick, as in "I found a stick on the forest floor" is not a verb. Stick, as in "You should stick to the plan" is a verb. Hope I could help :)

You will need to sand the floor to give the thinset something to stick to.

In a car with manual gearbox, the brake pedal is usually in the middle. In my first car, the accelerator was in the middle, which caused a few 'interesting' moments!In American cars with automatic transmission, the brake is on the left and the accelerator on the right. On a standard transmission (stick-shift), the brake is in the middle, with the clutch on the left and accelerator on the right.

It is when after you step on the gas pedal and then let off, the pedal does not return to normal position. The result is extremely unexpected and dangerous.

Could be a sticking throttle cable, but my guess would be a dirty throttle body causing the butterfly to stick in the closed position after it sits for a while. Try cleaning the whole area with carb cleaner, try not to let it go down into the intake.

The float because of the surface area is spread out which causes the stick to float.
