I recently bought a 2000 zx3 and today the accel cable (throttle cable) snapped in the casing around the middle of the cable. I went to a dealership to get it replace but the one they were selling for my car was about three feet long... the one I have that broke is looks at least twice that length. Mine runs from the throttle to the front of the car, along the front, then back to the firewall. Am I missing something here? The dealship I tried to buy the part off of wasn't helpful. Thanks.

It would seem that either (a) they have looked up the wrong part, or (much less likely) (b) Ford has revised and updated the throttle cable routing and it is to be a retrofit update if the cable needs replacing.

See if you can find a part number printed on the cable somewhere, or try another dealer.
