A buddy of mine with white gen 2 like mine, without 3.8, His accelerator pedal is stick like crazy and hes the kinda guy that doesnt give a flying f*** about his car which bothers me but at least i can help him make it safer. Ya anyway Is this a common problem and how hard is it to fix. If its simple me n him can do it, if not hes gonna drive that thing into a wall or something. Thanx Later

Need to clean out the throttle body. The butterfly valve is clogged with carbon from the PCV system. Just pull off the black intake hose, and clean out the exposed butterfly valve with your favorite intake spray. Be sure to get both sides of it to be sure.

I have the same problem with my Wife's 2000 Villager. A buddy of mine said that intake cleaner should handle the problem but we haven't tried it yet. Its an annoying problem.
