Question about Toyota Pickup
I found a broken spring with two looped hook shaped ends on the floor of the 1988 toyota truck. It feels like something is blocking the gas pedal when trying to accelerate, but it looks to me that it just needs a spring to add tension to the gas pedal. I can see the cable coming from the firewall which hooks to the gas pedal, but it is hard to tell where or how the spring hooks up to the cable and where is the other place where the spring hooks up?

Fairly easy to repair, Obviously the cable is broken. Just follow it back. it runs through the firewall from the pedal to the throttle body. if you have cruise control it may go there (I don't remember and am too lazy to go look at mine) Either way, get a new cable and put it in!!!

You probably should replace the entire cable. You may, however, get away with using a cable clamp to replace the cable fitting.
