the throttle body has a spring and the throttle cable has a coil type spring to help with throttle return

Unless its super stiff then buy a new cable. But I bought a new cable because mine was really stretched and by replacing it, it stiffened up the pedal a lot. Just because it was a tighter newer cable.
