I've noticed in the last few weeks that my gas pedal wants to stick first thing in the morning or after sitting all day when I'm leaving work. When I say stick, I mean it doesn't want to move when I apply normal pressure with my foot. I have to press down really hard, which results in high-revving the engine, in order to get some movement. This seems to go away after a few minutes.
Right now it is just an annoyance, but a new issue that I've never had before. Any ideas on what's going on, or what I could check?
I've taken my TB off twice and thoroughly cleaned it with CRC Throttle Body and Intake Cleaner, it does wonders. If you haven't done this already, go ahead and pick up some Milspec shaft seals and replace the worn stockers.
I just cleaned mine today throttle body that is since I replaced the Apeture Seals from WORK's and also replaced the OEM Intake Mani to TB Gasket as well. There was allot of build up in there lol. It took almost a full can of CRC TB Cleaner and About 4 rags to get it done but it looks like new now. I am now going to see if I can get this code fixed and if so I will be happy.

It's not just on evos, it's with any injected auto. Normal build up, it's from heat and fuel vapors, most dealers do it as a part of a service interval. Nothing to be concerned with just keep up on it I clean all my vehicles throttle bodies every oil change only takes a couple minutes.
