Help, idle problems.

I'll be driving and when I clutch my rpms go up and it makes the car jump, but I don't think it's the clutch it's my accelerator Getting stuck or something because when I gun it it stays at that rpm for a second and then will idle at 2k....but then stop doing that randomly.....?

For what it's worth, I had a 94 GT that would do that. Bad TPS sensor. Does it have any surge to the idle?

It feels like the throttle gets stuck for a second and does it every now and then. I have a lot of play in my as pedal maybe my cable is bad?

Possibly. You shouldn't have just a whole lot of play before the throttle engages. I would check any pinch points that it may be getting stuck at, how it is mounted on the engine, on the pedal, etc. A hung throttle could get you in a BAD situation...

I would take a look around and see if I could eliminate any pinch points, parts in need of lube, visibly broken parts, or mounting problems first. It's free so you might as well. If I was going to buy another cable, I would buy a Ford OE one.
