Thanks for the sympathy. But after driving that long, I learned a new way of driving with the problem. I have to release the pedal when I am at a dead stop and when I am downshifting. It's real annoying when the you want immediate response from the pedal and you get the brick feel in your foot! In that case I would have to clutch in, give the pedal a tap then slowly rpm match and release the clutch. Yup pain in the rear.G20Turbo said:G-Loads you poor thing! You've been having this lil' problem since f*ing May! Good luck with the new solution.
Actually that is not a bad suggestion at all. I should check it out to see if the cable do get caught in the firewall. But one thing though, I do not smell the gas when the pedal freezes. Hoping the new part in New Year will fix the problem.93blackbird said:I have seen this come in my shop a few times on Sentras and they report the same symptoms as you
Check right by the firewall and look at the pedal cable. See if the cable as become frayed and is catching on the firewall. Also have a friedn with the car off push the pedal and watch and see what is going on. The sentra's frayed cable was catching on the firewall and causing the throttle to stay open. The reason you are smelling gas is because the throtle is staying open. One you fix the throttle problem your gas smell should go away.
