Hey Michelle==It really depends on what kind of car but probably the clutch and brake pedals are binding where they pivot. and the accelerator is binding in the cable. Sometimes you have to completely remove them to properly lubricate them and replace the acc cable. GoodluckJoe losing presure in the rx-7 the clutch eases down to the floor Which pedal? If gas, I would lean toward a throttle bore cleaning.

I had the same problem for almost a year and damaged both engine mounts and trans mount. The fix was simple. The throttle body was gummed up and sticking. Took it apart and cleaned it with carb and throttle body cleaner and no more sticking. Smoothest pedal in a year.

try checking the gasket around the intake that should fix it

Clean the throttle body with a spray throttle body cleaner.

you will need to replace the throttle cable, and while you are at it check the return spring.

Check and clean the pedal system and the cable that it connects to. Lube any connections necessary, and make sure that the return spring is working, if your ATV has one.
