    Default Suzuki Swift 2011 Sticking accelerator pedal

    I have a now...3 ish year old swift DX manual.

    I bought very soon after it was released in pak

    Anyway, recently Ive had a odd experience with it. The accelereator pedal has a mind of its own.

    sometimes when i give it the full 100% it gets stuck for a few seconds

    Its easy enough to handle, not particularly dangerous for me ( clutch, neutral and turn off engine ) but the issue is that my mother also drives this car, and i dont want her to face this issue.

    After it gets stuck at 100% for a few seconds and goes back to normal the accelerator becomes very lazy. If i push it down 50% for example and let go then the RPMs drop much slower then usual, to the degree like i feel that there is still some throttle being applied.

    Then it goes back to normal for a few days. This has happened for about 5-8 times now, to the point where it no longer alarms me.

    I looked at the accelerator petal up close, it does not look like anything is blocking it like the carpet etc, the only potential problem i see is the torsion spring has grease on it ( probably from the factory ) and dust on it.

    Maybe wd-40 and new grease will solve the problem?

    Swifts to my knowledge dont have accelerator wires. They have a throttle position sensor in the pedal..i think.

    It has a traditional wire throttle not a DBW
    most prolly the car needs a good throttle service including the TPS. And do check the accelerator cable as well.
    my swift's thorttle had also gotten a bit hard after driving for 30k kms. Sold the car adterwards though.
    as far as I know, the swift's aceelerator mechanism is exposed to the outside on the thorttle body.....hence it gets dusty and dirty causing issues.

    PS WD-40 doesn't work.......tried it

    Yea it ll be good to get the throttle serviced if it hasn't been done in a while.

    Get Throttle Body Controller serviced ...If problem persists .. Get Throttle Body Sensor replaced ... nothing to worry about.

    Suzuki charge around 1700 rs for Throttle Body Controller service.
