Got it. I ordered it from CruiserParts. $150 for a used cable. Is this typical for Toyota to drop parts like that?
The cable is broken at the joint. When you press the gas pedal, it engages the kickdown. When you let go, it does not return. I have the transmission pan off and can see it. When I jiggle the cable at the top it sometime returns. I have to wiggle it at the break above the cable clamp.
I am thinking that I can lubricate it all I want, but sticking at the spot where the cable housing broke is still going to be an issue.
Strange that this part is not available. Neither new nor used. ?????
What's the length on that cable?My adventure with the transmission on my 1997 FJ80 continues. I used the flat scraper on the oscillating tool to make a small spot to get a thin putty knife in and was able to run it around the edge to clear out the FIPG.
Since my kick-down cable sticks (it does not return), I bought a new cable and was planning to install it. On closer inspection, I saw that the cable had separated here at the arrow and is catching.

However, when I got under the truck, I realized that I had an issue. This is what the end of the new cable looks like. It is the Toyota OEM cable.

This is what the connector of the current cable looks like. They obviously look different. Plus I dont see an easy way of getting that cable out of there short of completely breaking it apart (which will be a challenge with the angle that it sits in).
