Question about 2006 Mazda Tribute

Open Question

"tight" gas pedal

We recently purchased a 2006 Mazda Tribute & for the most part, love it. However, the gas pedal is - my word for it would be "tight". I have to put more pressure (constant pressure) on it than any other car I've driven. It's not that it sticks though. If I drive it any farther than uptown, my right leg & ankle aches. Is there any way to "loosen" the pedal so it has more give? Please help!

Try this: Go to your local parts store and purchase a can of (throttle body cleaner) you will take your air filter out and remove the big tubing that is connected to your throttle body and filter housing. Spray the cleaner inside the throttle body, open the (butterfly) and spray around the pivot the butterfly opens and close on. What happens is you get carbon build up in these areas and it causes the gas pedal to feel like it's stuck and have to apply more pressure to the pedal. You will see alot of black carbon run out of the throttle body. Take a clean rag and wipe down the area of the throotle body. Repeat the cleaning 1-2 times. put your air inlet tubing back on and re-install your filter. It may seem hard to start at first but it's drying out the cleaner that was sprayed inside the body. Try this and see if this works. I've done this on many vehicles that shops want to charge $300 to do and all you need is $5 cleaner. It's very easy to do and takes 20 min.

2005 Mazda Tribute gas pedal freezes in cool weather


Throttle cable could be binding inside the housing that attached to the throttle body. Also the throttle positioning sensor could be faulty as well.
