1998 c230 soft gas pedal

Normally has a pretty stiff gas pedal. Was driving home and noticed the pedal felt soft, like it had some play in it. Still runs and accelerates fine, but seems a little sluggish. Don't have a lot of money to put into it at the moment. Hoping it will be something cheap. Everything I've read says it's the throttle body or throttle position sensor. Still not sure. Don't really know how to test to be sure. Any help would be helpful
