You can try a motorcycle cable lube tool to do the cable.

Yup and done that, also the paper funnel taped up and cable held vertical so oil slowly leaks into cable. I use proper size fuel line and a zerk plugged in one end and grease gun to make a super fast cable greaser. I've even recovered bike gauges that cable was good and gauge jumped wildly, attach same fixture customized a bit to bottom of gauge itself and grease slightly, the gauge went to factory new type operation, it lasted for years.

It has turned cold here, and I am having the trouble with the gas pedal sticking. Thanks for the suggestions, I will be trying these suggestions, this weekend.

Hopefully I have explained this well enough.

Any ideas? Any help is appreciated.
Spray some t/b cleaner to it w/ the t/b opened. I used to have to do that about ever yr. Since I deleted the egr w/ a tune, I don't have that problem any more.

I actually had to take my t/b off and clean because it was so gunked up. No more sticking

^^^ This is the most common problem, I've had to clean mine as well.

The question for Dvitale is whether it tends to stick from a closed position, as in when you first press on the pedal after it being released. If it sticks only when first pressing on it, cleaning the TB is the answer.

I found if you delete the egr, no more t/b sticking. I used to remove the rubber connector & spray some t/b cleaner w/ the throttle open ever yr or so. Not so w/ the egr deleted now.
