I would suggest that the reason the cable broke use that table was seized in the first place.To see if this is the case disconnect the cable at both ends and try to move backward and forward manually. If you are able to move the table at all then I would suggest getting either a new cable or one from the auto wreckers.unfortunately the only way that you can unsieze a seized table involves many hours of lubricating the old cable by shaking it in a solution of diesel or some sort of rust penetrator.Regards

Had a tune up and fuel injector cleaning on my 2008 Ford Escape 2.3L. Now my gas pedal is stuck/sticking and the radio display does not work


I looked at info for non-hybrid. If there is a throttle cable, get at the throttle body under the hood, take the throttle cable loose, work the lever, see if moves freely? My info says throttle bore and plate has a special coating, it says not to clean it. You could lube throttle pedal linkages, see if it helps? You could use wd 40 in the throttle cable housing, from under the hood, see if helps. You might use a carpet cover in case of drips.
I don't know if tune-up had anything to do with these other problems?

Too much play in throttle pedal can i adjust the cable


There should be an adjuster under the hood where cable hooks into the bracket that will give you a little bit better feel but usually when those cables get stretched its best to just replace the throttle cable.

What could be wrong with my cruise control? The dash light comes on but it wont set when I press the button to hold speed.


ok under the hood on your throttle body there is 2 sets of cables attaching to it the one closest to the throttle body connects to you gas pedal and the one next to that connects to your cruise chances are that it popped off or the cable broke chase the cable back to the control box if there is no breakage then you main cont box went out and should be replaced to locate you throttle body follow the tube from your air cleaner that tube connects the throttle body the cables are right next to that

Accelerator sticks will drive without touching gas pedal had to have it towed


I found the 1996 Camry stuck accelerator problem. when it stuck it woul dbe due to the pedal cable going into a small covered box that housed the cruise control linkage. The bottom of the box is open and it would hold heat, expand the roller bearings that held the cables and the rollers would stick, keep ing the car accelerator pinned. once cooled down, it would roll again. take the cover off and leave it off to stay cool. WD the hell out of all of it, problem gone for another 50K miles. Did it for months before I found it, Toyota mechanics could never find it as it only did it when it heated up a bit or warm weather, etc.

Find a pickup the same year and model. With this hood open, Take a coat hanger and bend the hanger to the correct shape to snake into your pickup and hook onto the hood latch. Practice a little on the hood open, partial closed etc until you are comfortable snaking this into the latch.
