The easiest way to locate the cable might be to have someone assist you. Raise the hood and look toward the center of the motor. Have someone inside repeatedly step down on and let up on the accelerator. If you pay attention closely you should spot the movement of the throttle linkage and be able to trace the cable from there.

You will probably need tor replace the throttle position sensor....TPS... You can check and make sure the wiring is connected...Easy to find it is located on the side of your throttle body...usually on the right hand side, or toward the front of the car on your engine....

How do i replace a ford focus throtle cable


disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle body. follow the throttle cable around the engine and you will find it goes through the fire wall and connects to the gas pedal. disconnect the cable from the gas pedal and pull out of the cab compartment from engine side. Pay close attention to how you disconnected the cable from the gas pedal and from the throttle body because you will have to reverse this procedure when you install the replacement. You will need an assistant who is pretty flexable to connect the cable to the gas pedal. so let the assistant disconnect the old cable from the gas pedal so he or she will know how to connect the new one back to the gas pedal. It was not an easy project for me and it definitely is not as easy as it seems to be. You will need plenty of time, daylight and patience. The replacement cable may be shorter than the original and that ok. Ford has made sure it will work. Use tie-wraps or zip-ties to hold the new throttle cable back in place around the engin. Good luck.

What does a throttle positioning censor for an 05 ford focus look like


I suggest you google 05 ford focus throttle positioning sensor. This sensor keeps you air intake throttle at the proper position when the engine is cold and changes position when the engine has warmed up. to locate the sensor, remove the hose that comes from the air filter housing to the engine. the hose you removed was connected to the air throttle. you can manipulate the position of this throttle by having someone push the gas pedal down slowly while you watch the throttle move. notice that the gas pedal cable is connected to the mechanism that opens and closes the air throttloe. also notice that beside this mechanism, you have an electric throttle positioning sensor. Pay close attention to the existing throttle positioning sensor before you remove it if you are planning on replacing this sensor. because if you do not install the new sensor in the same degree that the old one was in, you will throw the calibration off. word of advice. buy some throttle cleaner from your local auto parts. turn the car on with the air filter to throttle body hose off and have someone push the gas pedal down slightly to keep the engine from turning off. spray the throttle body cleaner til all the black crud comes off the inside of the throttle body. this dirty crud is what was making your throttle stick and not working properly.

Can you tell the location of the idle speed valve on a 1998 escort gti please


You will find idle speed controllers in the area of the throttle plates. In order to work, air must bypass the throttle plates.
