I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem. About 3 times a week when I step on the gas pedal while city driving, the pedal wont go down. I have to lift of my foot and press it again. Sometimes I have to put my foot down 3 times to get it to go down. I didn't find any sticky residue or anything interfering with the pedal. Just dont know why it does it. :surrender:

There is a cable end and pivot that needs lubing under the bonnet - lift the plastic cover off first
(where the cable ends) -- whole cable may need lubing??

The cable and pivot can make the throttle seem very heavy when lube is needed.
Gives the impression of lack of power.

Yea, sounds like you need to lubricate your throttle cable there.
