Re: Throttle cable broken?
its easy to check, although a two man job,
with the car switched OFF --->
take the intake plumbing off the throttle body and touch the butterfly inside or watch the linkage on the side, now the other person pushes the pedal down and the butterfly should move immediatley.
While you're at it depress the throttle all the way to the floor then make sure the butterfly is 100% open, or do this with the linkage on the throttle body its probably easier on EB-ED as you cant really see the butterfly. If you can move the linkage /butterfly further your cable has stretched and your not get W.O.T when you jam the pedal to the floor
it is possible the wire cable is sliding inside the plastic sheath causing the delay, just check it all out
