This may seem silly, but am I correct in assuming that if an accelerator spring is good, it should hold the gas pedal in place? Like, you shouldn't be able to pull it back more than a centimeter, right? My truck's gas pedal can be pulled back about an inch or two, which I'm assuming is NOT a good thing. (I used to be able to really accelerate when I floored the pedal, now it can barely accelerate decently when I floor it on certain steep inclines. So that was my first indication something may be off with it.) Again, it may seem silly, but I am very much concerned about that... Plus, while I haven't been driving it regularly since middle of last year, I did drive it fairly often for about seven years... That was when the spring was last replaced after the old one snapped on me while driving. (Didn't seem strange at the time when it happened, but the replacement may have been just as old, so it may be that the current spring is giving out on me now.)
