Fixing a Slack Gas Pedal.



About: Update 12 September 2017: A very special thanks to Sam Elder, a manager here at Instructables, who tracked down the cause of my lost publications and fixed the issue. Take a bow Sam!

Intro: Fixing a Slack Gas Pedal.

The gas or accelerator pedal on this Kia Rio is slack. It has a dead space between touching the pedal and the engine responding. Here is how i fixed this issue.

Step 1: The Source of the Slack.

The accelerator cabke has slack near the throttle body.

Step 2: Why the Slack.

I removed the holding clip and it is clear the cable sleeve holder needs to be moved back. This is causing the slack.

Step 3: Removing the Slack.

Pulling the sleeve back and fitting the retaining clip back in place, the gas pedal is now firm. Driving quality is a little better now.
