Sticky gas pedal....not the recall type
First off my sticky gas pedal is in no way related to the recent Toyota recall issue of WOT stuck pedals. My 2000 CE 4 cyl has recently developed a sticky gas pedal. When I go to push on it like when taking off from a stop sign I can feel a little resistance and then it will snap down a little and be fine. This is kinda hard to explain....kind of like a stick and slip situation. It is really noticable when only trying to give it a small amount of throttle,,,,like when trying to creep foreward a little. I am thinking the cable needs lubed but after looking at it there seems to be no good way to lube this cable.
Anyone have this issue?. My wife has noticed the stick also. What do I need to do to fix this thing?
Please help and thank you in advance.
