Throttle sticking. I see mai=NY complaints have been filed. Does someone have to die befoir gm has to fix the problem???.
Throttle sticks closed requiring excessive force to push throttle pedal. This causes sudden acceleration when you get past the stuck area.
I took my 2001 chevy Tahoe to the local dealer to fix a sticking gas pedal. Since the vehicle is under the original warranty (3 yr/36,000 mile), I should not incur the cost of repair. And with only 25,000 miles, a sticking gas pedal is not normal. However, Chevrolet/gm does not agree (please see email traffic). I feel that this "carbon buildup" is a known defect and a safety issue - not a normal emissions operation. Could you please look into this matter? nobody deserves to have a sticking gas pedal at any time. Thank you. Sincerely, joseph c. Cua >>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<< dear mr. Cua, thank you for your continued patience as we have researched your questions regarding the gas pedal sticking in your 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe. We appreciate your patience. We did contact gunn Chevrolet and spoke with service manager, stephanie rocha. Ms. Rocha advised us that in the owners manual, under the section of maintenance services, it specifically states at 15,000 miles that the vehicle may require emissions service and then possibly again at 30,000 miles. Ms. Rochas states that the sticking pedal is due to carbon build up from gasoline and is deemed normal maintenance and is part of the emissions service. Maintenance is the responsibility of the customer. We apologize for any dissatisfaction this may have caused. If you should need to contact us in the future, simply reply to this message or call our Chevrolet customer assistance center at 1-800-222-1020. Please reference file number 1-108448392.

Gas pedal sticks closed, and requires a large amount of pressure to depress brake pedal. Happens every time the vehicle is stopped. When you start up in morning, leaving parking spaces, at stop lights, etc.
Vehicle fails to slow down when accelerator is released. When releasng the accelerator I notice that tachometer remains at the same rpm. At first this trouble was intermittant but has progressively failed more often until now it is continous. The only way to slow the vehicle down is by braking using the vehicle's brakes. When the engine braking was working ok, about two seconds after taking your foot of the accelerator it would slow down properly. I contacted the dealer on 2/22/2001 and he supposedly took it for a test run, however, the odometer in and out were identical, 26528 miles. When I contacted them again, their latest response was that they all do that and there is nothing I can do to have it corrected. I feel that if the problem is not corrected shortly it will cause premature brake failure because of excessive braking which could lead to an accident.

When taking foot of gas pedal vehicle will continue at current speed without slowing down. In order to slow vehicle down, consumer must apply brakes. When consumer took vehicle to dealership, they installed an idle air control valve which corrected this defect for approximately 4,000 miles. "cruise" defect happened again, and the idle air control valve was replaced by a different dealership. At 29,000 miles, engine will back down approximately 5 to 10 seconds after the consumer removes foot from gas pedal. The dealer could not duplicate the problem and stated the condition of the vehicle as normal.
Vehicle does not decelerate when removing foot from the pedal. Rpm gauge does not drop quickly enough, and vehicle does not slow down when taking foot of the pedal . Have to make a panic stop.

Consumer states while traveling at highway speed consumer would have to use force on the accelerator pedal to gain speed. Dealer has been contacted. Please provide further information. Ts.
