The gas pedal sticks intermittently while the vehicle is in motion. That is, while driving normally, and I press on the gas pedal to accelerate the vehicle, the gas pedal will not release after I have taken my foot off the pedal. The depressed pedal will remain in this position until I have pumped it several times. Only after I have repeatedly pumped the gas pedal will it be released and returned to its normal position. While pumping the pedal, I must simultaneously apply the brake to decelerate the vehicle.
