Question about 1995 Ford Explorer
From what i can see, the gas pedal cable is still taut, but there is a spring at the end of it, and it appears that the pedal is just loosely hanging inside the vehicle. I don't know what to look for to mount it back into place. Please help!
Check where the cable attaches to the throttle body there is a plastic clip that goes to a ball on the throttle more than likely it is broke there.

The throttle is operated by a cable from the pedal to the engine throttle. That cable is either broken or has come loose from the pedal or the engine throttle. Check the pedal first. If the pedal does not have any return spring and falls to the floor the cable is most likely the problem. If you are familiar with the engine components and can see the throttle and cable you could have someone try to operate the pedal without the engine running. If it has come loose from the throttle you should see it move. If not you and appears to be connected to both the throttle and pedal the cable is broken. You will have to have a new cable installed if it has broken. Good luck.
