Is there a way to fix this? Thanks! June 8, 2016 at 1:32 am #1077 JeremyKeymaster Two things you should look at : 1.) The throttle return spring. Make sure it’s not too weak and replace or add an additional spring if necessary. 2.) Motor mount(s) – especially the drivers side mount. If it’s bad under hard acceleration the engine can lift enough that the throttle will hang. Good luck! Resistance is Futile.
