spray a little crc on the throttle linkage at the t/b failing that you'll need to replace the throttle cable easily done with basic tools

Read few these i had a similair problem a while ago.... but seems to me that your throttle body might be a bit worn maybe... so what is happening? does it return back properlly... might be a simple case of adjusting the screws or something in the throttle body itself..

thanks for the links.
the pedal seems to return fine,every now and again it holds slight revs for a sec but all in all it seems to work well,just real stiff.
