Had a bad case of sticky pedal going :( Had a new one put in on Monday:thumb:

Since the affects were gradual I had no idea how much of a PITA it really was. The smooth silky feeling is back and IMO the response (albeit still DBW) is so much better. Plus my mileage has improved a good 1.5 mpg since I no longer push past the needed level for acceleration.

Let's hope this one doesn't act up, at least until the "real fix" is released:)

I'd be willing to bet that it was horse manure under the pedal causing the problem :yikes: :rolleyes:

One day you'll leave that bummbleville of Rochester, and have a good ole philly cheesesteak. Then you'll understand all about cheese whiz and fried onions. Until then, you haven't really lived my friend :D

Hold the phone... I've done it up with real philly cheesesteak before! It's a fine item indeed, but I was envisioning someone eating raw onions like crackers while applying a thick strand-like covering of cheese whiz to it. :eek: :eek:

No I was talking a good old fashioned Philadelphia cheesesteak...which any true Philadelphian will tell you should have fried onions and cheezewhiz...

At Pat's that is a "cheese wit" ("wit" as in with fried onions and always with cheezewhiz):D
