Accelerator pedal seems to stick a bit

Is there a basic way to lubricate the accelerator pedal, or is this something in the linkage area of the fuel delivery system that I should lubricate? Just wondering if spraying some lubricant on the actual pedal will change anything.

THank you.

Linkage lube

Don't bother with the pedal. Get under the hood with a big flat blade screwdriver and twist-pop each mechanical linkage joint apart. Clean and relube then squeeze back together with channel lock pliers or something like that.

The lube fluid is somewhat controversial. Some use transmission fluid, some use light oil. I use a small smear of white waterproof grease. It's all good.

Let us know how you make out.
