normally its the throtle cable bad We need more information to help you with your question. Sometimes it is a device connected to the carburetor/throttle body that can cause the pedal to stick. That's what's happening to my car. It only sticks when the car is cold before it is fully warmed up. After I drive a few miles I have no more problems... til the next morning. Does it only do this in cold weather before the engine is warmed up fully? Does it always do it? Check to see if any linkage is binding. Disconnect the throttle/gas pedal cable and check to see if it still happens without the pedal and cable connected. Divide the system and disconnect different devices to see what is the device causing the problem. Have you used carburetor cleaner to clean the throttle plate inside the carburetor/throttle body to remove any deposits that may be causing it to bind? What make, model and year is it? Almost always there is a build up of carbon in the throttle bore. One of the few exceptions I have seen was the cruise control cable breaking and wedging the throttle in a wide open position.

Why does car engine hesitate on initial acceleration?

When you press your foot on the gas pedal, it tells the car it needs more gas. The engine then has to take in extra gas. Once it has the extra gas, it must compress the gas, so the gas will have a higher pressure. Once the gas is pressurized, a spark plug goes off, causing the combustion, which powers the car. The time it takes to do all of that causes the hesitation on initial acceleration.


When you press the gas pedal it makes a weird sound from the exhaust?
