    Yes but you have tried all the logical stuff and i had similar grief with my 2.8 granada engined pop and the kickdown linkage was messed up and catching .
    Sorry for trying to help it won't happen again

    does not have a kick down cable, just uses vacum.

    when you move throttle by hand its seems to move freely with or without engine running.

    My thoughts were that the kickdown cable may not be connected but the linkage part on the throttle linkage still comes round to push the the kickdown lever which is now just hanging down and getting possibly getting jammed now and again . Or not

    Re: Advice really needed..Throttle sticking on..2.8 V6, auto, Weber 38dgas

    id be tempted to take the auto choke off and chuck it away,

    maybe coz iv never had a good un but they always (for me) seem more trouble than their worth !!!!

    i had a 38 dgas on my last Rv8 and even without the choke it always started ok after a couple of prods on the throttle, even on the coldest frosty horrid mornings

    My pops got the manual choke version of the same carb and i've never had the choke cable connected as years of driving vws has taught me how to keep an engine running until its warm (road end usually )

    I agree the kickdown lever is hanging down loose, its been like that since I bought the rod 18 months ago. Havent had any prolems with the lever or cable or linkage untill about a month ago. The last 4 times Ive used the rod the sticking throttle has happened 3 times, always just a few miles fom home. The time before last on a test drive to see if the problem accured, it didnt, but I think that was due to the way I drove it, lots of hard throttle starts and on and off throttle driving. Then saturday when I drove it normally it did it again in the same piece of road just a couple of miles from home.

    I have now renewed both engine earth straps..... and lubed all linkages fully, it all seems to all move fine.
    There is a little movement in the granada linkage where the kickdown lever is, ie you can wiggle it a little with your fingers. But Im guessing that there would be some movement as it sits in plastic bushings, and it has to turn, it seems to move freely. (Can you still get those plastic bushing clip things)

    I have got a 38dgas manual choke conversion....so I think Im going to bin the autp choke and go with the manual....I still wonder if was the fast idle coming on, because it was set too fast, as that was the only thing that Ive done to it in the last month and that was to improve the starting idle.

    I asume theres nothing on the C3 box that could cause this, as I said earlier its only vacume operated.

    thanks guys for all your help, anything else then keep it coming.
    I suppose its a process of elimination.
