Heavy gas pedal

Hi all. I am currently having a problem with my accelerator pedal sticking. It almost caused a issue while cruising around town.
Could anyone think of a solution on why this is happening?

You may need new bell crank bushings at trans and motor. There is also a cable guide bushing in the tunnel just forward of the shift coupler access. I had the same problem and replaced the bell crank bushings at the trans. Works great now.

Thanks, I will look into that.
Is this something I could do myself?

ck out the actual control arm where it meets the back of the pedal itself. Remove the pedal and take a peak at the mechanism.

On my car I removed the springs at the T body many years ago , pedal is a lot lighter , much like a newer car, but I done this to my friends 930's some work great some with no springs and some I detach only one of the springs , there are two slings. Beware on some cars if you remove both sping the t body doesn't close completely , so you should check for that. Good luck
