    the accelerator on my honda 2000EX seems to be sticky esp when i start my
    car after a few hours of stop.

    lets say i m starting my car in the morning... i'll have to tap on my
    accelerator for it to be normal.. it just seems to stick. but once I tap
    it... its works fine for the rest of the drive. the same if happens if i
    leave a car for af few hours, then again the accelerator is stuck to its

    any one got any idea what this could be?

    I think it is just a matter of oiling some part because my 2000LX
    displays the exact same symptoms and each time I take it for service,
    I complain. They do something that fixes it for a few weeks.

    Anyone does this on their own? I believe I am going to have to keep
    asking the shop to do this on every service.

  6. My throttle cable was caked with dirt, i cleaned it as much as i could
    then lubed it. Try moveing the throtle from under the hood and see if
    the cable is slow to retern although if it happens after a rest i would
    look at moveing parts on the throtle bodie. To make it last longer try a
    dry lube or a good synthetic oil. You might try asking them what is
    being done? Cant hurt.

    Thanks Randolph:

    This is very very helpful, now alteast I know whta the problem is and also
    how to explain.

    I don't know if I can handle the solution myself, atleast the first time
    around, but anyhow I am taking my honda to the service center this weekend.
    I'll take the printout with me, so the guy knows exactly what I need hime to

    Thanks a ton!!!
