    Throttle cable came undone

    Hey guys. My car has been leaking oil for a week. Pretty bad. But, I drove my car on the road for the first time. I gave the car some gas, and when I let my foot up and went to hit the gas again, I had no pedal. I looked under the hood, and it looks like the yellow plastic piece that holds it in broke. How do I replace or fix it? I just tucked it in for now

    I was going to suggest a "zip tie fix". My guess is that the clips are an integral part of the throttle cable. Might require a trip to the boneyard...

    Just remember that you are messing with the vehicles throttle and it could cause unexpected acceleration and get you into trouble. While a zip tie may do the job right now you will have to replace that cable very soon. Safety first.
