You need the "throttle cable" a good auto parts store may be able to get you a new cable, or salvage yard? pretty easy to replace, I think you can do it.

Our 2002 Dodge Durango 4.7 when started goes to full throttle 6000 rpm and has to be immediately shut off.


John, first make sure it is not floor mat or carpet holding gas peddle down causing throttle issue. If all looks good there, would suggest you check throttle cable for being seized, throttle body seized or return spring faulty/broke. You may want to contact a good Tech, have them diagnose and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I press on the gas pedal on my 2007 Kia optima and nothing happens. The engine is running


If you have drive by wire, It could be the TPS/gas pedal sensor or the vehicle is in limp mode. Have the codes read. If it is cable driven, the cable has popped off the throttle or the cable broke.

Replace accelerator cable


Very easy to do. Take the old one off and you will see how easy. At the carburetor, the cable will be secured by a bracket. Unfasten it there, and then on the carb. roll the throttle back to wide open throttle, cable will be loose, lift it out of the groove it rides in and slide the end out of the throttle lever. At the firewall where cable goes to the gas pedal, there will be a rubber grommet that cable goes through. Just punch the rubber grommet out of the firewall.
Now on the gas pedal attachment, many different ways to secure it. Some just snap into a hole on back of gas pedal. If you can't see how to disconnect, take the gas pedal off-usually held to floor by two screws-and turn the pedal around to see how the cable connects. Once disconnected, the cable can be removed, usually drawn out of firewall on the engine side.
Good luck. Now the next time you have to replace it (like 25 years, !) you will know how to do it. Keep the old Honda running!

Spongy gas pedal


You will need to open the hood and have someone watch the throttle as you push the gas pedal, see if the throttle arm moves as you push on the pedal, this may be due to a bad cable or it may be off its holding bracket or loose. start with this test.

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.

Gas pedal broke loose


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.

F250 7.3 L Diesel. Have no use of gas pedal.


Check the throttle linkage make sure nothing is broke also check your throttle body and make sure nothing is stuck. If those check out then check out the pedal itself and make sure that the shaft is pulling the throttle cable the way it is supposed to and no throttle wires are stretched

Gas pedal linkage


Don't need a diagram.
Start by checking to see that ur cable hasn't come off the throttle body or that the clip in the floor behind the gas pedal is still there.
If it's broken, remove the clip on the floor and remove from the throttle body. Disconnect the cable from the pedal and pull it out from the inside of the car.
