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.

What would cause a 1991 Mazda Protege to have a blinking hold light and a non-functional speedometer?

The speedometer cable (which runs from the transmission to the dashboard) has snapped. This is a two-piece cable, and the one-piece cable in later Proteges will not work. I had the transmission replaced, and the cable could never be fit in properly. This is a mechanical speedometer, so you would have to change the entire speedometer part of the instrument panel to use a magnetic/electronic speedometer.

If by letting up on the accelerator you mean not hitting the gas pedal then it's normal your not increasing rpm that being said oil isn't being pumped through as fast as it would when hitting the gas so less oil being pumped through less oil pressure it's normal now if it's like dropping to zero there is a problem...

The cable is routed through a metal tube made into the center "tunnel" in the floor pan. It also goes through the engine fan housing inside another tube. I would not suggest trying to thread a used cable with a frayed end back through the tube. Get a new cable and consult the Robert Bentley manual for more details.

Why does the accelerator stick when it is depressed but only when the 1993 Prism sits for a time and you have to really punch the accelerator hard to push it in?

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.
