Asked by Leslie Jun 26, 2013 at 02:55 AM about the 2004 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The gas pedal is sitting directly on the floor. It cannot be pushed to give the car gas unless it is adjusted all the way up, and even then it will barely move. There is no resistance or spring to it? I can see something that looks like a spring, but I don't know if that is the problem because I'm not sure how that is supposed to go ,

make sure the cable does not look like this, and if the cable is ok seems just a new spring should do it
