Late 2003 Ford Focus ZX3. PZEV engine. 44,000 miles.
When I start my car in the morning, particulalry a cold morning, the
gas pedal will not depress. It's as if it's locked into place and
simply won't move. After 10 minutes or so of warming up, I can finally
"push through" whatever's making it stick and it works completely fine
for the rest of my drive. I have NEVER had a problem with it sticking
while depressed. This problem first occurred at around 15-20k miles
while under warranty and the dealer replaced my throttle cable, but all
the things I've read about the throttle cable problems seem to refer to
the pedal being sticking while depressed. Do throttle cables only last
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
