G'day all,
Some thing that has just happened to my Jackaroo is the accelerator cable sticking whilst I'm driving along.....not really ideal ! What I found was the accelerator cable was not fully retracting back to the closed throttle position. The large external spring responsible for the accelerator returning on the throttle body is loose. One end of the spring is folded, the other is open ended. So where exactly does the open end part of the spring connect to? Any info/diagrams explaining this would be great.......

Thanks,

Mick

Doh, my bad !

It is a 10/2000 3.5l V6 Petrol SE LWB...........looks like it could possibly be missing a bush under the spring, but still I'm not too sure what should be there !

Cheers,

mick

Mick,

I'll take a digital pic of mine tonight or tomorrow (depending when I get out of work) and email it to you if you want.

The throttle body end, right?

What's your email?

G'day Savvas,

If you can take a photo of the throttle body end that would be great. I'm am faced with a few options at the moment:
1. Hopefully my extended/insurance warranty will cover it,
2. Replace the missing (???) bush from a second hand throttle body, or
3. Replace the whole throttle body.

The third option is what Holden have suggested as the throttle body supposedly isn't broken down in an independant parts breakdown any further than the whole assembly. So they can't supply the missing bush. Hopefully, my first option will cover the third, but just in case, I need to be prepared for option 2 !!

My email address is woofye1@iprimus.com.au

Cheers,

Mick

G'day Bradley,

thats why I'm trying to find out IF there should be a bush or not, but without any sort of service manual I can't be sure. Even the local Holden dealer wasn't too confident about what the problem was. Hence I made a post quizing about applicable service manuals for Jackaroo/Trooper in thread ID 13799.
I definately think it is a major overkill to replace the whole throttle body, but, if I can get it done for free then, u beauty..........

Cheers,

Mick
