I just finished changing my distributer cap and to do so I had to disconnect my throttle cable. When I was done and had everything all set up I went to start my car and as soon as I started it the engine started reving way up so I shut it off. I figured out that my throttle cable was holding my pedal floored. I messed with it a little bit and now when I start the car it revs up to about 2500 and holds. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I know I looked at the pedal and if I pulled the pedal out to where it should be I can see about an inch of the cable sticking out. But out of everything ive read I cant figure out whats going on, I was thinking it was just an adjustment but I cant find anything on adjusting it anywhere including my chilton.

By chance is there a ton of carbon in the throttle bore causing it to stick?

Check the idle air control motor, throttle position sensor, is the pedal still holding down? If it is look for carbon build up, this is easy to do, remove the itake tube from the throttle body with the car off. And move the throttle lever and look into the bore. I don't think you will have much carbon build up but its worth a look.
