Okay, I'm 100% sure its the throttle body. Two times now I've felt the pedal sticking as I'm warming the car up to leave work. Both times I popped the hood and opened the throttle by hand. I really had to put some muscle into it before it would break loose and rev up. I guess the plate is sticking and I need to take the tb off the car and clean it really good. Either that or replace it.
Side issue: I also notice the car idles kind of rough after highway runs (15-20 min to work), so I'm hoping that if I fix the tb problem it will fix the idle problem too.
