Need to replace a 1991 honda civic throttle cable?


These are fairly easy and straight forward to replace.
  • Start by removing the cable from the accelerator pedal. Climb under the dash and locate the cable at the back side of the pedal near the top. The cable is similar to the brake cable on a bike that has a knob at each end of it to retain it on the component. You can remove this by turning the cable so that it can slide out the notch on the side of the bracket and slide the knob out.
  • Next remove the cable from the throttle body. This is done very similar to what you just did under the dash. Turn the round bracket attached to the throttle body that the cable is wrapped around until the cable is loose and you can slide it through the notch in the side and slide the knob out.
  • Remove the cable from the mounting bracket. There are two 10mm nuts that lock it into place on the bracket.
  • Trace the throttle cable back to the firewall and remove it from all of the retaining clips.
  • Pull the cable through the firewall. The rubber grommet will come with it.
  • Install the new cable in the reverse order.
  • When you are re-installing the two 10mm nuts near the throttle body, these nuts are used for the adjustments. When the cable is installed on the throttle body, it doesn't need to be really tight, in fact there should be a slight amount of play in the cable. You can use the two 10mm nuts to adjust this.

Good Luck!

Loose gas pedal, i need to push accelerator farther in


the gas pedal is connected by a cable that goes to the throttle body or carburetor on the engine. there should be a nut that holds the cable end in place where the steel cable comes out of the housing near the throttle body. it sounds like this may be loose or stripped out. you may need to replace the entire throttle cable.

99 Plymouth Voyager takes long time to idle down after releasing gas pedal. Checked for loose vacum hoses but didn't find any. Throttle Cable is free and not sticking. Anything else I can check.


Have you taken time to remove air intake hose & spray clean throttle plate & intake of throttle body, using throttle body spray cleaner? Could be idle speed motor acting up , but lets try this first.
