sticky accelerator gas pedal
My son has a 2004 Honda Civic that has 105,000 miles on it. It hasn't had any problems until now. The accelerator, gas pedal, seems to be sticky, resistant ---causing a problem in accelerating to get on a highway for example. You push on the gas pedal seemingly with enough pressure to gradually accelerate. But you can not get the fine tuned graduated acceleration that you would expect, and that you get when accelerating other cars. You depress the gas pedal with seemingly enough pressure to increase your acceleration but it doesn't respond, so you have to press harder and it might go faster than you expected. It's just not fine tuned gradual acceleration like other newer cars. Does this make sense. Does anyone know what the problem is. It could cause an accident in my opinion when you need a certain amount of gas to accelerate quickly and the gas pedal just doesn't respond as you would expect it to. Thank you.
