05-28-2008, 10:33 PM
I installed a 20% over drive on my blower new injectors bigger tb maf etc,
rev it a few times sounds great took it out on street did a few burn outs, wow this thing has balls .

take her around block runs nice i ease into gas it takes off like a rocket ,
light turns red i let off hit brakes but whats this gas is stuck full blast.

I turn off key now I'm trying to come to stop doing 90 with no abs working wow!! thats fun!!! so i start it up baby it home, check it out .

throttle body works returns to idle no sticking cables everything seems to work I rev it up let off it stays floored i shut her down pop hood cant find anything wrong,

I replace cable with a used one thats layin round does same thing ,
i remove tb unit check it out all is good what the heck.

then i see something weird the cruise control is working the cable hmm i remove fender and look see this is where is get crazee there s a possum up in fender has a nest on and around cruise vac unit it ate a hole in vac unit and guess it was tuging on the throttle cruise cable .

anyone know a recipe for possum pie?

first picture was the possum im the second one the possum has better teeth than me

manny, my car was doing something similar. What was happening was, when the motor torqued up, it would pinch the end of the throttle cable against the AC reciver on the side, and when i let go of gas it would hold it in place. I bent the thing outa the way and it never did it again. took my friend watching it while it happened to find out tho, so get some more eyes.
