There is some variance in connections car to car, but they all do the same thing. At the carb. or throttle plate on the motor, the cable goes over a half round guide and the end slides into a round slot. Rotate the guide to full throttle and slide the end out of the slot. The cable goes through the firewall and should have a screw holding it in place. Inside on the gas pedal at the top will either be another end like the throttle end or may be a loop over a pin. May have a cotter pin or clip holding it. Remove and pull out through the firewall. To help get the new one in tie a string to the end of the old one and reattach it to the new one. Use the string to pull and guide the new one in. Reattach the ends and done.

Could be a bad coil, plug wire, plug, etc. One thing to check. If it runs on one cyl. At low rpm, but both at high rpm, the right throttle cable can be out of the throttle body sleeve. One quick fix with engine off, is to wick the throttle full open hard, and let the throttle snap shut a few times. OR look at both throttle cables at the thr. Body to see if the right cable is hung up on the sleeve. Both sides have to be identical .

You have a 2000 outback wagon 5 speed the throttle sticks at when you take the foot off the gas at about 3000 to 4000 rpms?

Check for a floormat catching on the accelerator. If not the floormat, usually is a mis-routed cable where it comes out of the cable jacket and loops around the throttle shaft. This will hurt you or your engine if left alone-- please fix it quickly. You can check throttle operation with engine off.

This may be due to 2 reasons. One is the fact that the throttle body bore has a groove worn into it due to a worn throttle shaft bearing. This cannot be fixed as you will have to purchase and replace the throttle body. The other could be a frayed or binding accelerator cable.


How do you fix a gas pedal that sticks?

Check the butterfly in the throttle body on the car. It most likely is gummed up with oil and residue from the PCV system. This will cause the butterfly to stick. Clean this out with some carb cleaner and towels and it should take care of the problem. If that doesn't fix it, try to clean and lubricate the throttle cable.
