Throttle Cable Broken - 01 Taurus DOHC
On my way home from class the the engine revved up really high and was stuck like that, I threw it in N and got off the road and turned the key off. After taking a look, I found there is a little gray clip that the throttle cable goes into that is broken. I'm assuming I need to just replace the entire throttle cable?
I have found the Motorcraft part number, which is labeled Cable Assembly - Throttle Control, part number YF1Z9A758BA. My concern is whether or not this is only the cable, or if it will include the part with the broken clip.
Here are some pics of where it is broken. I had to put some duct tape on to make it home. The last picture is how the cable was when the engine got stuck revved up.
Thanks and Gig 'Em
