accelerator problems are easy to diagnose; especially on older cars like yours. What I think happend is that your mechanic may of removed the wire, and when he put it in, he tightend it too much. To much: you get what you described. To little: you get acclerator pedal slack. Or maybe it just got old and needs replacing, when the little spring before it goes out (if your car has a spring) It does what you describe. Just take it to a technician, simple problem, he may fix it for free.

Thanks Jack, you know in Urdu (my native language, I'm a Pakistani) we call real close friends by the slang 'yaar'.
I can honestly say, Thanks, yaar.

I know this thread is kind of dead, but a buddy of mine was talking about adding 20hp to his car by adding a chip to it. What does the chip do?

Don't you dare get a chip that promises you 20 HP. Don't you do it. it's basically a resistor- you can get from radio shack for 4 bucks, incorprated into the chip- so the car runs leaner. you may get 1 horse- not 20. say good bye to the cat, the air meter, 02 sensors, etc. you severly alter the cars reliability by one of these. get a real chip. a quality one.

He says he's looking to spend like 60 bucks. He also says since he has a turbo it gives him more hp.

Nope. Still a rip off. the 60 dollar ones are bad. i think i know what chip he's talking about- and he's headed in the right direction. He needs to be spending atleast 260 dollars for that chip. and he probably will get the 20 or so HP promised- not from the damn 60 dollar chip though. spend some money or forget it.

like the APR chip for the Audi/VW 2.0T's. Around 700 bucks for ridiculous gains and different modes like valet, race, 93 octane, stock, etc...
