car   Accelerator Pedal problem 11
Failure Date: 08/01/1999

When I purchased the truck, the throttle would stick when started. This occurred only every 2 months or so until 40,000 miles. Now it does it every time I start the truck unless I press the gas pedel down. It also does it sometimes when I slow down. As for the parking brake, I had to replace it last year. The dealer said I must have driven with it on. I knew that was a crock, but spent 300. 00 to have them replaced. Now they are gone again. There is definatly something wrong with this parking brake system. What does it take to have chevy admit there is a proble? roger siddall.

Increased accelerator pedal effort caused by sticking parts in throttle body. Chevrolet tbsooo6o4 confirms the problem but does not offer help to owner.

car   Accelerator Pedal problem 13
Failure Date: 06/01/1999

Gas pedal sticks. Makes truck jerk quickly forward in drive gear, or jerk quickly backward when in reverse. The part was replaced at about 34000 miles, however the same problem happened again at 67000 miles. Less than 34000 miles again. This is a severe problem with the gas pedal sticking. It is hard to park the truck, back the truck up, or start movement of the truck in tight places. The truck could lurch out of control and hit another car in front or rear. The gas pedal has to be stomped to get it unstuck. This could lead to an uncontrolled acceleration.

When applying force to accelerator pedal there would be a high level of resistance behind pedal. Consumer would have to continue applying additional force to pedal to prompt acceleration. Dealership examined vehicle, and determined throttle body would stick in closed position, causing this problem and preventing smooth acceleration. Problem was corrected with this repair. However, problem has appeared again in beginning of November 2001. Dealership has not examined vehicle for the recent problem. Please provide any additional information / attachments.
