I am unsure of how to adjust the Throttle Cable on my 1998 ZX2, it isn't in the Chiltons I bought and it also isn't anywhere on this site after using the "Search" button everyone is crazy about lol. I also have looked at it and just can't figure it out and it''s plastic so I'm scared to break it. :(

Just read this thread again I actually found the info on a website somewhere... Don't remember which one go to google and type in "1998 Escort ZX2 Throttle Cable Adjustment" There will be a link somewhere that actually has pictures of how to do it.

why not just tell us how you did it? as far as i knew there is no cable adjustment, and no need for one.

hell, i fabricated a custom TB cable bracket. since i swapped the stock TB with a 65mm focus central TB. doing this the stock cable is 3" too long. only options are to fab a new bracket or swap the focus cable in.

I posted a pic collage that might help. It is basically sliding the white locking mechanism towards the throttle body until it clears the black adjusting ring. Twist the black adjusting ring a 1/4 turn (90degrees) and then gently pull the cable housing away from the black ring until there is just a little slack. Turn the black ring back to the locked position. Slide the white lock back in place. Job finished.

I adjusted mine to be more tight than loose. I remember trying to find the info and then just looking at the unit and figuring it out by fiddling around with the white piece. Lol Good post though, I've read some scary alternatives.

I also read some crazy fixes and thought that I should post the correct info before even one more person looked this thread up and did some of these things. I hope it helps somebody adjust the cable correctly.
