Since I have tried to get answer from Zilvia and got no responses I'm coming here for help.

So I found out a couple of days ago that the plastic piece behind the gas pedal is essentially 'broken'. By broken I mean it is detached and there is no possible way to hold it together. Without that plastic piece that gas pedal is very loose. I have tried tightening the throttle cable and every time I do, I check to see if the pedal is loose or not. So once I apply pressure to the gas pedal it feels good then it just becomes loose as soon as I push the pedal all the way down.

I need to know how in the world do I fix this? I do not want to be ghetto and use tape/glue. Thank you.

I do not know how to put pictures up on this site but I have pictures on Zilvia. Please look at them so you know what I am talking about. Thank you.

You either have to put something there to clear the space (preferably a nylon bushing with a slit), or buy another throttle cable with that piece not broken. They are about $75 brand new from the dealership. Part #: 18201-54F00 for S13 KA24DE throttle cable.

Lets say I buy a brand new throttle cable, will it be time consuming to install? Also will it be easy? lol Thanks.

Well I found out that it is not broken, I guess that is how the plastic piece is suppose to be. I found out when I push my gas pedal all the way down the cable slowly but surely makes its way back to its original position. Which essentially is why my pedal feels loose and why my RPM's shoot to 8000 when I start the car. I'm guessing I have to remove the intake piping and check the throttle chamber to see if its sticking possibly?

Take it out and inspect it further, maybe spray some WD40 down the tube to create less friction.

Although I did not take it out to inspect it I did spray some throttle body cleaner down in there but it still occurs. Stumped now.

Well I decided to get a new throttle body cable and install it to see if it fixed the problem and nothing. The problem still exist.

I removed the intake piping and it looks like the throttle body is not closing fully. That is the reason for the high rpm's(1-2k) when the car starts. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Yes that sounds like your problem. There is a screw outside of the throttle body that dictates how far the throttle plate closes. Adjust it down until its fully closed then play around with your IACV screw until you get a solid 750 rpm idle, which is what you should be when fully warmed up.

Alright Steven, just to make sure this is the screw you are talking about?

Just updating this if anyone was interested in wondering what happened.

Found out that my throttle body springs were completely loose. I tried everything to tighten them but nothing worked, which only led me to buy a new (used) throttle body. After I replaced the throttle body everything worked out great. By the way, this was probably 3-4 weeks ago. lol
