Best guess is replace the throttle cable.

Wide open as in wide open throttle?? You mean the engine is racing? Something is wrong with the throttle controls, or the throttle valve in the carburetor may be sticking open. Look down the carb throat. At its base will be the throttle valves-"butterfly" valves just like the choke valve on top of carb. The throttle valve should be closed at rest, or at idle, or when gas pedal is not moved. Rotate the throttle lever on the carburetor by hand (when gas pedal is pressed down, the throttle is rotated). The throttle valve at the bottom of the carb should open and close with the throttle lever.
If the valve is sticking, spray some carburetor cleaner down it, and spray the outside clean, too. Work the throttle back and forth to make sure it is free to move.
For a high idle, have the carburetor adjusted. Timing should be checked, too-that can cause a high idle, but wouldn't cause it to go wide open.
Let us know what you find. Good luck.

92 ford ranger when first started excessively high idle


Could be a vac leak, or a faulty idle air control valve on the throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by regulating the amount of air entering the intake.

One possibility is a buildup of dirt and sludge in and around the idle air control valve. The buildup causes the idle air valve to stick.

1984 Ford Ranger- will not idle at all, will start and run with your foot on the pedal at high RPM's- I installed new carb so that's not it was acting the same before- I bought it for a huntin


Check for a vacuum leak somewhere. It could b the pcv valve on the valve cover or the hose going to the brake booster. Take the hose off the brake booster and plug it. then start the engine. It might also b the base gasket under the carb.

The clutch pedal sticks down when trying to engage


YOU DO NEED A NEW DISC AND MOST LIKELY A MASTER AND SLAVE HYDRAULIC CLUTCH CYLINDERS, THE STICKING MAY BE DUE TO OVER TRAVEL DUE TO THE WORN OUT DISK.

thanks for giving a good deal of info to go on. When i think of what temperature will have an effect on I think of oil. Oil would work better in winter because it is thicker and lubricates better. In summer it will thin out and maybe with the higher mileage it has an effect on the motor power. What oil was used on the last oil change. Most popular is a 10w-30w. Maybe summer would be better to use straight 30w. If this helps please reply and good luck

2003 nissan xtrail accelorator sticks will not return to idle speed


Had same problem on a Nissan Patrol, happens more to me in winter time when some rust builds up around the cable (because the little rubber thing that prevents dirt from getting in the cable sleeve disappeared a long time ago - Normally I just lubricate it and it remains fine for another 8-10 months). Check accelerator cable for dents or splinters, if it seems ok, lubricate it and assemble again. If not, replace cable.
