About a week ago I hit a deer. Well actually the deer hit me it ran into the side of my jeep and then went up under it and got ran over. I immediately stopped and made sure nothing broke. But then when I started driving I heard a loud pop. Looked again cant find anything. Then about a mile from the house the gas pedal made a little pop (felt it more than I heard it) now the pedal is real easy to push in and it's like the jeep doesn't have the power it used to?? Any ideas where to look? Can I tighten the pedal??
Btw 97 2.5l on 35's 4inch lift idk if any matters

you might have popped the throttle cable off of one of the bushings that add tension. go to the throttle body and make sure it is wrapped around all the bushings and follow it all the way back to the pedal
