Return spring on throttle??

This may be a dumb question or I may be ignorant for asking but I'm not 100% sure about this return spring on my throttle it was on there when I bought the car so I left it and was wondering if I need it there? Does anyone else have a return spring?

Re: Return spring on throttle??

What throttle? Are you asking about the "throttle body", or the "accelerator pedal"?

A throttle body needs a spring so that it returns to the closed position when you let off the accelerator pedal. Otherwise you it will compromise the safety of the vehicle.

As for the accelerator pedal, I don't know if it has a return spring. I think there is a spring or to on my Prelude's, but not sure if you consider it a 'return spring'.

Re: Return spring on throttle??

Can you post a pic of this? Removing the throttle plate return spring is a little involved, and it's obvious that you shouldn't remove it. It's a radial spring and you'd have to remove the piece that the throttle cable connects to from the end of the throttle plate shaft in order to remove the spring. Did someone mount an external spring or something?
