The pedal side of the cable has a loop on it that hooks on to the top of the gas pedal. Take a flashlight and look up under the dash.
If you can't see well enough, a few screws taken out allows the lower panels to be removed, so that it is easier to see. Actually there is little reason to put these panels back in.

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

Gas petal not working

The linkage spring must be broken or the cable to the throttle body has broken. Check for broken cable at pedal end and throttle plate.

The gas pedal is sticking on its own

First question, does your truck have cruise control? If so, find the cable that goes from the cruise module to the throttle body, and disconnect the cable and see if that solves your problem. Next thing is inspect the throttle cable, from the gas pedal through the firewall to the throttle body, and look for any kinks, anything contacting the cable or linkage.

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!

I bleed the brakes brakes and the pedal still goes to the floor to stop. Why does it do that.

Why did you bleed the brakes to begin with? If it was because the pedal started dropping to the floor, and bleeding the brake system didn't fix the issue, you may have a bad seal in the master cylinder. Typically the best way to fix the problem is to replace the master cylinder with a rebuilt one. Good luck, hope this helps.

Follow cable from throttle linkage area to transmission. Check that where it attaches, to transmission, moves freely with gas pedal to floor & then released. Vehicle off, in park obviously. It may be a seized throttle valve linkage, just apply penetrating lube like WD-40, and try getting it to move farther & more free by hand, as well as with pedal until it returns all the way as it should. Let me know what you find.

Cruise control and throttle pedal go to a butterfly aperature on throttle body.  Look in the engine compartment and while someone pushs on gas pedal.   Look at the area where the cable comes out and goes around a semicircular widget (throttle body butterfly).  Cruise control has another cable that joins this same plate. Check for slack in cable, clear cable path,  and look for anything in that area that might be broken or routed wrong.  
good luck

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.
