When you find out what to do for this, call me! My 4KS has been doing
this intermittently for about 3 years or so. It does it about every 6
months or so.
The only thing that I can find that helps it is to tighten the cable a
bit. Under the hood, move the little retaining clip on the cable end at
the throttle body up a few notches. This tightens the cable, and seems
to help a bit.
