View Full Version : Accelerator linkage on 1995 Maxima

The accelerator on my '95 Maxima is hard to press to maintain very slow speeds (like backing out of the garage or pulling from a parking space). You have to press hard to get it to move any at all; then the car lurches forward (or back). I have tried WD-40 and grease, but nothing seems to help. Any ideas?

Have you inspected the complete linkage at the pedal and under the hood? What about when trying to move the throttle by hand, same result?

Yes. I inspected both places. Moving it by hand under the hood does provide the same results. It almost feels like you have to overcome the force of a magnet to get it to move. Once it moves, it moves freely, until it comes to the resting position again.

Take the air intake hose off and inspect the big flapper valve that you'll see; it might be gummed up... you should be able to dissolve the gunk with carburetur cleaner.

I agree,bet your throttle body is dirty.
