Sticking accelerator pedal

Hi all

Just as of this morning, while driving, when I let up on the throttle, the accelerator pedal sticks for a few seconds upon my release. This ceases immediately upon me braking. Any ideas? I'm currently in New York City, a GREAT place to have your car misbehaving in this way!

Thanks!

Remove the floor mat put car in neutral...............Oh wait wrong forum!!

Couldn't resist!!!

Check your linkage for binding lubricate the pivot points.

Only stops on braking ? Disconnect cruise control linkage sounds like it could be activating

I already removed my cruise control, well before this ever started happening.

is there any chance you have done a recent oil change or glow plug change?
the heater hose that wraps around the oil filter, sometimes get moved, for better access to things, and can cause this.

Slap a toyota label on the trunk and forget about it. Actually a good lubrication and inspection for anything abnormal should take care of the issue.
