Re: EF accelerator/revs probs
cables are about $40 from ford.... TPS is the electronic reading for the throttle, which i gather controls, at least in an EF, the ECU's built in transmission computer? hence the over-revving if this is faulty...
the cable should be easy to put on, it snaps on to the pedal at one end (kinda, look at it and you'll understand) and the other end the spring sits inside the bracket and the other end of the cable sorta clips thru then has a metal stopper over it...
i had an MPI cable in my CFI and it was giving me troubles.... do you have the stock diff in the car, cos if its not the same as the car came with ratio wise this could cause the rev problems also... maybe even a transmission service might be needed...
