Silverado 1500 6-cyl

The gas peddle gets stuck and does not press down to accelerate. I have to try to mash down on the gas peddle several times for it to work. I was told the problem was the throttle valve cable was messed up and needed to be replaced and that there was carbon buildup. The mechanic that tried to fix it said he drained black gunk out of it.
