accelerator cable replacement?

Hello All, forum newbie here....

I have an 88 Wrangler with a 4cyl. My gas pedal gets a little sticky in hot weather so I'm thinking that I need to replace the accelerator cable.

First, Am I looking in the right direction and if not is there something else I should be looking at? Second, has anyone done this before and if so would you be willing to share your experience?

Roger

hey and welcome to the forum. the cable is real straight forward to replace, but it could just need to be lubed, or the throttle body could be dirty, i'd clean the throttle body, and clean and lube the pivots and cable
