May not be a big issue, but thought that I'd ask. First, I drive a 95.5 3.2L Rodeo. Over the last week, the accellerator pedal sticks a bit when the car comes to a stop. Not a big issue, but some day I'll be in a parking lot, trying to manouver a tight spot, the pedal will stick, and I'll end-up ramming something. Is it a quick fix or a sign of a major problem??? I'd appreciate any thoughts on this.

easy fix

at the end of the throttle cable there is a small dust cover (rubber)
when they start to get old they start to fall apart or kind of melt remove it and clean as mush of it off as oyu can this should take care of your problem good luck

Thanks 2eye! The last car I owned that I actually did my own work on was a 1959 Austin-Healy Sprite that I did some medium difficulty work on when I was in high school... if you see this, I have a service question for you or whomever:

I just bought my Rodeo a few months ago from a used car lot as-is. Coming back from a trip to Dallas, I stopped at a gas station an hour away from home to use the facilities, came out and the Rodeo would not start. Plenty of battery power, in fact, I waited 15 minutes and tried it again, repeating for an hour and a half before my ride got to me.

I had it towed to the local Isuzu dealership, where they wound up replacing the fuel pump. I also had them replace the fuel filters while they were at it. Total cost of $840 with labor. The day after I got it back, I went to the gas station, put the fuel nozzle into the side of the Rodeo and the gas poured out onto the pavement because they did not reconnect the line to the fuel tank. When I complained, the dealership said that they would replace the fuel filters for free for the trouble. Does this sound acceptable? I'm still quite pissed, and doubt that I will ever return to the dealership again. But I just don't know if their offer is acceptable or not...
