Throttle cable adjustment

Hey does anyone know how to adjust the throttle cable in a 2001 v6 vert? My pedal is resting at around 85% throttle but the engine is peaking at 15%ish

I just put zip ties on my 97's cable and they've held up very well

You can use zip ties for a temporary fix or you can get clear spacers from like Home Depot. You basically just lift up the pedal and get rid of most of the slack, then put the spacers or zip ties to hold it in place

Zip ties, like 4 or 5 should do it

i have a gt, so i dont know how different it is on the inside, but what i did was take a little piece of rubber hose and some zip ties. i estimated a length of the rubber hose and sliced it along the side so i could put it around the throttle cable above the pedal, with a little metal ball piece resting at the top of it. then i put the zip ties around the rubber hose to hold it in place. therefore, the rubber hose worked as a piece of tubing that holds the slack up away from the pedal, and the pedal is raised up, and you can now get WOT about where it hits the floor.

hope that made sense....

+1 to everyone on this response. Zip ties, spacers of any sort, pretty much anything to keep that pedal up. I did it as soon as I got the car, and it made the car feel so much better.
