help throttle sticking

Can someone give me a clue.I have a 1996 2:0ltr gc8 non turbo it starts and runs lovely but it was standing and a farm yard for sometime and i think this may be part of the problem once the car is at running temp sometime the throttle will stick anywhere upto 3 thousand rpm . Sometimes if your lucky you can plip the throttle and it will clear for a short time but other times its hold on to your horse's and just let it rev which is a pain .Iam not stupid i have oiled the throttle cable and throttle body arms and it did help a bit but it's still doing it .I used to do rallying and was shown to use the gearbox to slow you down which i can.t and when out last night around B road's of illminster i got over taken by a bloody astra come on help
