When I drive on the street or highway, the gas pedal feels hard to press down. The car still repsonds OK, but the pedal isn't light to the touch as it was when I bought it. What could be causing this to get worse over time? It's at the point now where it feels hard even when the car isn't even on.
I also notice a stiffer steering wheel, tight brake pedal, and also the car feels really heavy when driving, kinda like having a rubber bans attached to you as you're jumping up and down.
It's at a mechanics shop getting a power steering fluid change, brake fluid change, and radiator flush. I had a fresh oil change and transmission flush just last week. I was advised that the shocks are bad, and that the car needs wheel alignment and a new set of tires. Could any of these fixes make the hard gas pedal just go away? What do you think?
have the same problem?
