    could be the throttle cable binding, or the pedal itself binding try spraying the pedal joints with white grease. And check the throttle cable under the hood and see if it is binding.

    I found the problem thanks for the response though it was the throttle plate in the throttle
    body sticking which has an adjustment thanks
