Question about 2001 Lincoln LS
I parked my 2001 Lincoln LS (V8) outside for about a month. It was running fine. I went to start driving it again and it started fine. I put the car in gear and press the gas pedal and no power. I looked at the pedal and then under the hood. I found a part that was hanging from a part that when pushed gave the car gas and reved up. I noticed a hole in the other part that connects the gas pedal to the engine. I tried to connect the loose part to the throttle cable but it seems that the throttle cable is pushing the wrong way to make the other part give the engine gas. There seems to be some kind of clip that holds the little bar in place to make the two work together. My neighbor gave me something called an E-Clip and said that would hold the bar in place. It looks like the same kind of clip that is on the other side that was holding the bar in place at the other end. No matter how I position the bar to connect the two parts it never seems to work. The two always seem to be pushing against each other. I need a diagram that shows me how the two connect so I get this thing fixed. Can anybody help or telll me where to go to see a diagram on line or just tell me how it is done. Thanks, Bart
Turn car off, push the round throttle under the hood all the way open. Route cable on top and put in the hole, release throttle. That should be about it.
