Throttle sticks until clutch pedal depressed

My car has a sticky accelerator and I don't understand why the clutch

pedal being depressed remedies the problem. Anyone else have this

issue

I just changed my clutch master cylinder and noticed a similar stiction

effect on my gass pedal upon reassembly. What happend was the

accelerator lever was rubbing the clutch slave cylinder and binding a

little. I think the bar from the pedal was bent a little when I removed

some of the parts so I bent it back away from the clutch slave cylinder

and everything was smooth as silk. Check it out from below and see if

anything is binding the accelerator lever.

The accel linkage is binding on the clutch slave cyl. You will probably need to slightly re-shape the accelerator arm underneath the car to clear the clutch slave. Also check the condition of your motor and tranny mounts.

My first 02 did that.

I was on the skidpad with an instructor in the passenger seat.

He tells me to "lift" off the throttle.

I do, but the car keeps going.

He YELLS at me to "lift".

This time I lift my right leg up so that my knee is past the top of the steering wheel and I say, "I AM!!!!"

He says, "oh", and then we go to the pits and find the problem.
