    I noticed my throttle pedal is really loose. You can tap it with your foot and it clicks and has about an inch of play in it. Anyone know how to tighten it up? Under the hood w/ the throttle cable maybe?

    Under the hood right before the throttle body the cable should be attached to a bracket with 2 nuts. Loosen them, adjust as needed, and then tighten them back up.

    check to make sure the cable is not streched out as well.

    Wow, such a huge difference. Tightened the cable tension with those two nuts by the throttle body; I had no idea that would make such a change, Thanks Again!!
