Hey guys i had a problem last night which could have become dangerous that i should just ask you guys.

When i start the car for the first time of the day (And i have just been ignoring this) the throttle is stiff and i have do jam my foot on it then it works as normal after wards.

Last night i gave it a short boot and when braking my brakes felt faded and only just pulled up and when i was at the lights the car was revving out then i hit the pedal and it came unstuck again.

I have sprayed WD40 on the pedal spring bu no luck.

Any idea's?

maybe the cable is getting caught on the inside of the sleeve might be worth taking it out and checking it for any kinks or the like
could also be where it attachs to the throttle plate or TB

Yeah i checked the throttle body area and it looks fine and once u rev it repeatedly it works fine and is responsive it just happens in the morning and when you hold it flat for an extended period of time.

Probably your throttle stopper isn't adjusted and the butterfly is sticking to the housing either that or a stuffed cable. Either way it's 5 minutes to fix both

+1 for throttle sticking in housing.
Re adjust throttle stop so it just, just holds the throttle open a tiny bit to stop it sticking. As the throttle body cools down overnight its grabbing you throttle butterfly
