Why do I have a touchy gas pedal after one start while I’m driving and after I start it a different time it feels almost sluggish? Also I have a very slow oil leak somewhere but have no oil spots on the ground and no burning oil smell and no blue or black exuast smoke what would cause this?

  1. oil leak is probably somewhere on top of engine. Maybe around the valve cover area and is being burned on the exhaust before it has a chance to reach the ground.

    A touchy gas pedal could be that the throttle cable needs lubricated or replaced, throttle plate in throttle body need to be cleaned. Or maybe the TPS is worn and needs to be replaced.
