I'm guessing it's cable operated throttle? Does the throttle cable move freely, no binding etc?

What year is it?

Does it have a carb or fuel injection? Or is it a diesel?

The part you can see, meaning the gas pedal?

Spraying wd40 on the pedal won't hurt anything. Most likely won't help anything either, though.

Open the hood and disconnect the air cleaner from the carb. Good where the cable is connected to the carb and unhook it. Should be pretty simple to unhook. If the throttle lever on the carb is free to move, then the problem is in the cable.
