Yes I think the name is XXXXX XXXXX something. Gas never fully releases throttle not cable

Thank You,if I am correct this motor has throttle body injection. The first step I would take is to clean the throttle plate and housing bore with gum cutter spray to get rid of the gum/varnish that may cause the throttle to stick on return to idle.Try this and let me know,thanks,Dave
