Default Throttle body/ throttle cable

I am thinking i need a throttle body or a throttle cable. I have had high idle issues for some time but recently the gas pedal "sticks". It is hard to press then it "pops". it is happening more and more often. I tried cleaning and lubing the throttle body and i also lubed the cable but no good.

So.... Do i have to go to ford for the cable, i want to try that 1st since it is cheaper.

As for the throttle body, is there an upgraded one, or would i better off w a stock one. And where can i get one other than ford

There is a stop screw on the throttle body. If that screw is backed off too far, the throttle plate will close to far and stick. Check that first.

Ah. Well if you've cleaned it out all nice and it still sticks, it is probably f'd. That's def not a bad price so its probably the best route.

mine was doing the same thing, it was that screw either too far up or down digging in to the plastic that holds the cable. messed with it and the sticking stopped.

They called yesterday. Cable is in. have to pic it up today and see if that fixes it. If not, throttle body time. Is ford the only source for one?

I've heard of the throttle body off a 4.6 mustang being able to mount to the 4 liter. Not sure if you want to go that route and get another used one though.

I would like to go with something that would be a direct bolt on.

I pu the throttle cable on yeasterday and while is smoother out my pedal, it still sticks so it looks like i need a TB
