Throttle lever spring

Ok my throttle sticks a little bit from time to time.
I adjusted the throttle cable but still nothing.
My question is I see hooks on my throttle spring that are just dangling out.
Where do those hooks hook on to?

Re: Throttle lever spring

first check the screw that is under were the throttle cable wraps around. Some times they come lose letting the throttle plate to go farther then it needs to causing it to stick. I'll take a peak at my soon to be modded extra throttle body I have at work to see what your talking about.

Re: Throttle lever spring

Ok so my throttle still sticks and I still have no idea where that hook hooks on to on the spring.
I soaked the throttle lever with some WD-40.That didnt help any.
I was told you can lube the throttle cable with something.
Any input on this?

Re: Throttle lever spring

pure, plain graphite is best for that type of cable. it won't attract dirt.

as far as the spring...these pictures may help... MAKE sure the inside of the spring is attached to the "barrel" of course.. then the top, or outside, of it fits over the Throttle "cam." Check out what I colored red for you. I am moving this week and have borrowed a truck so I cannot go take a picture of mine. I will later (Tuesday or Wednesday) if you still need it.

Re: Throttle lever spring

So I have another question.
What type of lubricant is used to lubricate the throttle cable? Wd-40?

Re: Throttle lever spring

I have the same issue. My throttle seems to stick a little in which it will idle high, and if pump my throttle pedal real quick the idle will go back down to normal. Then once I start driving again and come to a stop the idle is high again. I tap the gas pedal and idle will go to normal. It's no big issue but annoying. At least I got my car running :)

I cleaned the throttle spring as well with cleaner and WD40, and even sprayed the throttle cable as best I could. I adjusted the throttle cable tension some so the idle won't be so high, but I am still having a sticking throttle cable. Any ideas?

I can't adjust my idle on the throttle body, as the idel screw will not budge when spraying the hell out of it and it's so tighten down all the way that the aluminum starts to break off when I try and turn the screw with a regular screw driver, as the screw is a regular, but will not come loose. Damn.
