it sounds like the throttle linkage has broken on your inlet manifold which the throttle cable connects to if that's OK then the issue is the cable has come off the back of your pedal

My 04 Mazda rx8 acceleration Cable goes to the floor and car won't go


My guess is that either something is sticking or the cable broke or there is a return spring on the pedal or the gas throttle that may have come off or broke

Is there anything obstructing its return to higher position?
If not, the spring that pulls it back is not working.

Cable on top of engine broke on throttle what does it do


Replace the cable with one from your local auto parts store or dealer.
It may be for cruise control if your cruise control no longer works.
Or, it may be for the accelerator pedal.

Acceleration is not working


when you press the gas can you hear the engine accelerate if you can then that means it is your transmission if you cant it is your gas cable linkage just snap you can just replace it by removing your engine cover then add a small nut and tie it to the end of your gas linkage strech it in to the plastic arm and you can then use it to take to your mechanic to fix it properly

Somthing broke on the accelerator of my 1990 jeep cherokee, 6 cyl. The gas pedal goes to the floor and the cable at either end can be pulled without affecting the other end, but the cables do not pull out....


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!!!
