old car problem

I own a 92 Toyota Camry with 112,000 miles on it. The gas pedal sticks when it is first pushed. Once it is pushed, (sometimes real hard) it works normally. The first push causes the car to jump like you are smashing the gas pedal to the floor. It does this every time it is initally pushed. I tryed to lubricate the cable but it did not improve. Please help.

Replace the throttle cable and inspect the throttle body for damage/grooves/wear. Have it done by a qualified dealer or service person.

Also have them check under the dash for something that might be getting in the way of your pedal like a carpet, mat, etc.
