    Hey guys i don't know what the hell is wrong. I installed my throttle cable and it seems when i let go off the gas the cable comes loose and then i looked under to see what gas pedal doing whenever i let go it comes out of the hole. Why is it doing this .... this problem is just pissing me off. Seems like there not somethiing pullin back.

    You might need to explain your problem a little better, but to me, it seems like when you let off the gas, the throttle does not shut properly.
    If this is the case, before you installed the cable, did you check it to make sure it slides back and forth properly? Did you check the pedal for easy operation? Manually actuate the throttle plate on the throttle body to see if it sticks. You may have a gummed up throttle body, or you installed the cable too tight, and it's not shutting all the way.

    Well you know the hole on the top of the gas pedal when i let go of the gas, it goes out of the hole, seems like it won't stay in the hole. Everything else is moving fine....... it pulls when you press gas pedal but when you let go of the gas pedal it won't go back with the pedal, just comes out of the hole the cable i'am talking about.

    Its not real easy to get it into that hole, you really gotta look at the shape of the plastic piece and force it in...itll click into place.

    Did you forget to put the little plastic piece that slips over the cable to stop it from going through the hole on the gas pedal? I beleive its yellow.
