Gas pedal adjustment...

Anyone know if the gas pedal stiffness is adjustable?
Mine is very sensitive when taking off from a stop. It does not have much tension in it and seems the first inch or so of travel has no effect on the throttle, then suddenly it works.
Wondering if the dealer can adjust it via computer.

How long have you had your truck? I know most new vehicles are a bit touchy. I never noticed because I have trouble NOT gunning it from every stop. I HAVE THE POWER!!!!!!!

I don't drive it much, only have about 3100 miles.
Also noticed the when using the cruise control you really have to hit the brake hard to get it to cancel and shut off.
My work car, dad's truck, mom's suv all you have to do is slightly touch it and it shuts off.

Are they Toyota's as well, my need to check the brake switch adjustment for that. The brkaes may also kill it later than other makes since you do have a cancel option on the wheel by pulling the switch towards you. Can't do that on a GMC, you have to hit the brake

All the others I tested were not Toyota. Couple fords, 1 Honda, 1 Dodge.
And they all had the cancel selection on the cruise buttons.
Not like it is a big deal, was just curious if others were like this also.

Was hoping that the gas pedal had some adjustment via computer hookup to have more feeling in it and more tension.

Take the truck out and just hammer on that pedal for 4 or 5 fill ups, that should loosen up that pesky spring!!!

I don't want it loosened up, I want it stiffer! There is just no feel to it.

The truck is trying to tell you that you drive too slow.

My first week had me squelling the tires about every time I pulled out from a stop. I finally got used to a lighter pedal.

I know what you mean, I would recommend taking it in, they should be able to adjust it with the computer. I had roughly the same issue, but a small oil leak in the shaft forced me to take it in, after the service the pedal felt much touchier.
