Just a little technical information: Your jeep does not have a "gas" pedal. Your Jeep has an "accelerator" pedal. This may sound trivial, but if you understand this, it will help you to know what is going on. The accelerator does not control the gas, it controls the air going into your engine. If the engine will not start until you give it more air, then the problem is most likely an Idle Air Control solenoid (IAC) that is sticking closed during cold operation. This is a common problem. Replacing the IAC will probably fix the problem.
take your car to a qualified machanic ASAP like now you may have a strands broken on the meteal stranded accelarator cable or something bent under the dash above the pedal this can be serious
it may get stuck if it does turn the key to the ignition a half click back so the car engines electrical power is taken away but the sterring wheel remains unlocked use e-brake for stopping if stick shift
depress clutch first then follow rest of instructions
Ask the service manager at the nearest Ford dealership by phone if they will take a look and not charge you since it's a critical safety item and could be a manufacturer's defect. A sticking gas pedal is something they should take pretty serious since that part certainly should not fail on a five or six year old car and recent publicity surrounding the Toyota problems has made all dealerships more responsive to that type of consumer complaint or problem.
replace the clutch slave and master cylinder,this is a hard one to bleed, may have to pry clutch arm all the way in so slave piston is all the way back to not be able to hold air, once all air is out you may have to pump pedal maany times let it sit then pump pedal again you will see pedal getting better and better, good luck.
If this car has a carb, the most common problem is the auto choke mechanism get siezed/ gummed up. Remove tha carb plenum in the morning before starting. Depress the accelerator pedal and check that the flap on top of the carb has closed.
actually my dad had the same problem with the gas pedal sticking on his low milage 1999 Buick LeSabre. As a result of this problem, he was involved in a wreck and the car was totaled. We have been told by his mechanic that this is a problem with that year of LaSabre.
