The pedal, check the throttle for build up, this will cause the plate(and the pedal) to stay open. If that is all clean, check the throttle plate, and see if it sticks anywhere.... of thats all good, check the pedal assembly, and see where it is catching, and what repairs are needed....

Most of the time though, the stick pedal is from gunk build-up in the throttle Body, It's rare(not unheard of, just uncommon) for the pedal assembly to have issues

The latch on my car freezes and wont close all the way, unless I pull in the garage and let it heat up.

Damn GM latches. They seem to be always broke. Especially when you wanna race. :s00ls:
