Hello everyone.



I need urgent help. A few days ago I had my A/C serviced. The evap was changed.



Since then when I hit the gas it takes a long time to go back to idle. It'll just stay accelerated like if I had my foot on the gas.



I cleaned the MAS and changed air filter. I guess its a vacuum hose.



Any ideas?



Thanks



BTW its a 6 cyl

Make sure your floormat isn't making it stick.

I wish it was that, but the pedal itself comes back fine. It'll stay at 1500 to 2000 rpm for about 15 seconds and then rpms finally come down

I'd take that to a Ford dealership or auto repair shop ASAP...that's a major problem that could cost you A LOT if the pedal gets stuck at the wrong place at the wrong time. :uhoh:

Something else you might want to look at? besides vacuum hoses & floor mats.

This thing happened to me.

-after time oil and grime build up on the walls of the throttle body housing were the butterfly meets forming a sticky ring, thus the butterfly sticks upon accelerating.

-disconnect the air intake or move it out of the way were it connects to the throttle body housing.

-now stick your finger in the throttle body housing, and open up the butterfly & hold it open.

-now with a wet rag wrapped around your other finger, you stick this finger in there and remove this oily ring, NO cleaning solvents.

I hope this is the cause of your problem so it’s an easy fix?

I had to do this twice since I put on my performance air intake. it has to do with the oil in the air element.

good luck
