Re: Frozen throttle cable
you're fuel injected, like my 86, right ? If so, try what I did. When the plastic sleeve inside that return spring started binding on me I scored an almost new cable from a wrecker. It was definately aftermarket, and of better quality, as almost everything that had been plastic was brass.
I used Mopar silicone spray, in the 13 oz can (real cheap from the dealer). Saturated the cable from both ends, til it ran out either side. I find anywhere silicone goes in, water gets displaced out. My idle was sticking a little higher with the old, broken cable, now it's silky smooth and never binds and idles right down to @ 700 rpms after warm up.
