That is what I see typed as your question. Can you give me more information as to what you are asking exactly

can we use a cable from other models to fix this problem
Expert:  Eric replied 10 months ago.


Ok, give me about 5-10 minutes to go thru all my cross reference books to see if there is another one compatible with yours

I am getting the feeling this is a game. I do not plan to spend money down a deep hole. you are experts, Right
Expert:  Eric replied 10 months ago.


Yes, I am an expert, but you are talking about a 24yr old vehicle. I work on hundreds of different models. NO ONE person can possibly know off the top of their head what parts cross reference with other models for all the ones on the road.

If you are not patient enough to wait 5-10 minutes to go thru the cross reference catalogues, I will happily opt out at this point.

Ok, the only cables that will work are 1992-1995 Aerostar 4L

As you likely have found out, they are no longer manufactured. You have 2 realistic choices - either locate one at a local salvage yard or purchase a universal throttle cable from a parts store such as Autozone and have your mechanic adapt it to your Aerostar
