Default About my Gas pedal!!!

Well, I notice when my engine is just started up and havent been drivin in a few hours the pedal is hard to mash down, but once I floor it once, after that is it almost too easy to mash down and i dont get same performance when pedal is hard to press. Also when im drving normal i may press medal down 1/2 way and then it get kinda stiff, is this there to let you know that if you press it farther the engine will open up?? Is there anyway where I can tighten up my pedal so it isnt so easy to push in?????

Check your accelerator linkage to make sure it isn't ceasing up anywhere. Likely your throttle body is dirty. If that'* the case you will need to clean it with some throttle body cleaner.

Don't get that stuff on the MAF sensor! Carefully remove it before cleaning the TB!
