So, after swapping my car almost two years ago, I never swapped out the throttle cable from the auto. I had a problem with the throttle earlier this week, so ordered a manual cable, and must say, it is a must buy. The "firmness" in the pedal with the auto cable is gone. It honestly makes it feel so much better. I know there's a thread on this with the part number, but IIRC it's 9157600. Only like 40 bucks from the dealer, and a 10 minute install. So worth it!

It's a different cable. The auto cable has the kickdown spring, which creates added tension.

This is the main reason for doing it.

Is it normal that when the car is off, the pedal is nice n easy to press, but once you start it the pedal gets firm?

Well, there is no air flow when the engine is off, not that the amount of air passing the throttle would create a heavy resistance. Can't imagine what else you are describing, though.

On older Volvos, the throttle cable used to have the potential for metal to metal contacts - in other words, it could become a ground cable = very bad. This could lead to cables binding, and even electrical fires. All our cables are isolated from ground - you will notice that the cable retainer is plastic, the bobbin is plastic, the gas pedal is plastic and the cable ball end is held in a plastic seat. So, not likely that you would experience any binding or resistance while the engine is operating for that reason.

Hm...maybe I'll have to look into this. Always hear about how great it is, but sounds like it's definitely worth it.

I always wondered why my throttle was so much stiffer than most cars. Now I know... (queue sound clip)

They say it's for an auto transmission.

So, not likely that you would experience any binding or resistance while the engine is operating for that reason.

IDK how to explain it really...just basically when the car is off, its super easy to push the gas pedal, but once its started, the pedal is noticeably harder to push. When its raining, forget about it...even worse. Its annoying cuz sometimes I shake the car in first cuz the pedal is suddenly harder than usual. Maybe i'll try changing the cable since its a little eaten up at the throttle wheel and clean the TB again.

Got one at work on Friday and installed it on my yellow wagon, like you said it is a night and day difference. I will be ordering one for my wife's wagon tomorrow!

After 3 swaps you would have figure I had already tried this but I never really saw any reason to, man was I wrong! Thanks for the tip.
