when i push the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor the throttle only opens a 1/4 of the way.

when i open the throttle by hand it opens up fully.

do i need a new accelerator cable? or does it need to be adjusted? the cable does have a slight break in it.

Sounds like you do,

have u taken the cable off the throttle body at all ?

i think there are 2 places the "clip" can go on (i think one is for Cruise Control the other Accel Pedal), you might of attached it to the wrong on.

50 odd dollars will get a new accelerator cable at burson and it will solve your problem. there not even that hard to change.
