    I have a B16A SiR II and my throttle sticks really bad sometimes. When I jump in my car and start it up usually, I'll hit the gas and the pedal is real hard then after a little pressure the throttle gives way. Any solutions to this problem?

    could need a new throttle cable

    try moving the wheel that the throttle cable attatches to on the throttle body by hand... if it moves freely there then i would say its most likely the cable... or the hinge on your gas pedal might be all caked up with shit... take a look at that too

    You may also want to check your throttle plate, and the area on the throttle body where the plate closes. Mine was REAL gunked up once with oil and other stuff, and my throttle was sticking because of it. I took the TB off, cleaned it real nice, and it took care of my problem.
