My gas pedal feels like it has come loose...rpm does not respond

This answer was rated:

My gas pedal feels like it has come loose. I push it and the RPM does not respond.
Hi there, does the pedal feel different than usual? Are there any warning lights on the dash?

It feels "loose" no lights on the dash
Can I please have the last 7 digits of your vin to pull up the info on your car?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Thanks. Its sounds like your throttle cable has snapped or come loose. You can have a look up above the pedal to see if it is detached.

Is this something I could fix myself?

If it has simply come unhooked yes, but if it needs to be replaced, it is a big job and would be difficult if you do not have experience. Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to press accept. Thanks. Steve
