Hi Anonymous, release jam nut and turn 1 throttle cable adjuster in. Remove top half of throttle grip housing and remove cables from sleeve. With a twisting rocking motion on throttle cable pull it out of lower housing. If it won't come out you are going to have to remove tiny round bar c-clip with a scribe. Good luck

Oldsmobile intrigue problems

make sure the throttle cable is not damaged and moves easily by disconnecting the cable at the throttle body and move the cable back and forth it should move easily and no restriction in movement. if this is good then you can try to clean the throttle body as it gets dirty inside and can cause the throttle to stick.

Izusu rodeo woulnt start. Mechanic replace starter. Now it is running wide open. It fine while driving but when coming to a stop it just revs super high. Any thoughts?

Check that the throttle cable has been correctly installed and is not jammed at full throttle . Run fault codes to check for throttle position sensor fault. Reset the CPU using a code reader as by disconnecting the batter to replace the starter the CPU program may have become corrupted and needs resettiing

I have a mitsubishi galant 1998 model.the problem is the rpm is to high even in the neutral the rpm goes up to 2000 rpm.

Do you have a "Check Engine" light? If not, check that the accelerator cable is functioning properly. When the accelerator is in the normal position the throttle plate should be completely closed. If necessary you should remove the air duct to inspect the interior of the throttle body. The cable should be have no slack but should allow the throttle plate to close all the way.

If the throttle is working properly then I would suggest looking at the idle air control (IAC) valve which controls the idle speed when the car is in park, in neutral or in gear and the accelerator is not depressed. Try disconnecting the IAC and note how the idle is affected. This will cause a Check Engine light to turn on. To clear it, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes then start the car. Let me know what you find out.

Cruise control went out on my 2005 ford taurus and my accelerator gets stuck at times. Should I replace the cruise control?

This is a dangerous defect. What you want to do is isolate the Cruise cable from the Throttle mechanism. Then get the Cruise cable away from the Throttle so it can not jam the Throttle accidentally.

With the engine OFF use your hand and move the remaining Throttle mechanism and feel for sticking or roughness in the control. If you feel binding, start removing the connection of the Throttle cable and work your way through all the moving parts like a Butterfly flap on the Airhorn, the TPS (throttle position sensor) and so on until you find out what is rubbing.

It is possible that the Cruise was disengaging because the Throttle parts were binding. If disconnecting the Cruise eliminates the sticking throttle, then all the problems came from the Cruise control cable or the Cruise Box. Once you have made a thorough check of the Throttle you can blame the Cruise for your problems and replace the parts.

Loosen the clips holding the coolant hoses and release them, remove the throttle body by undoing the 4 bolts holding it to the plenum chamber. Discard the gasket & fit a new one on refit. (This is after removing the intake hose, and disconnecting the throttle & cruise control cables. Then undoing the clip securing the breather hose and the multiplug).

Just installed new carb in my 1989 honda. Used diagram to connect vacuum hoses back up, but car idle speed is too high - up to 2,000rpm. What could be wrong?

try turning down the idle via the idle adjust set screw (usually on the carburetor base). if the problem persists after the engine is warmed up, there may be an issue with the automatic choke. also check the throttle linkage by disconnecting it to see if it is holding the throttle open when connected. if this is the case, you may need to adjust it or find a slightly longer cable.

79 charger boat goes in reverse but not forward

Try disconnecting the throttle cable and then operate the shift lever. You either have the two cables reversed or the gas side is too far one way and it is throwing you out of range for the shift.
The cables come to a fulcrum point in the shifter box. If one of the ends on the motor side is too far in one direction, the other cable can not travel. Even after disconnecting from the carb you may have to screw the connector to allow more travel in the gas cable so the shift works.
Good Luck
