    Frequently, the gas pedal will stick as I'm driving. I can be cruising
    on the freeway and when I want to accelerate, the pedal will be hard to
    push. Eventually, I can get the pedal to work, but it is scary. The
    pedal can also be hard to push after the car has been setting for a
    while. Unfortunately, when I take the car to the dealer, this problem
    never happens. The Caravan has a 3.3L V6. Any ideas?

    Start with cleaning the throttle body blade, if it has a lot of buildup
    inside it can cause this to happen

    I had the throttle body cleaned and that fixed the problem. Thanks to
    all with the helpful suggestions.
