The throttle cable on my supra snapped today and i was wondering what i can do? Can u buy just the cable and not the rubber tubing thats around the cable. And also if i did buy just the cable how the hell am i gonna fix it...probably not that hard but Ive never had a throttle cable snap before so i dunno whats involved. I just want some more knowledge before i tackle this

It snapped at the exposed part about 3 inches from where it connects to the throttle on the engine

No, its all one piece. You're best bet is probably used or new Toyota (try Jeff Watson 1-800-327-2087). Not even sure if they are still available.

If you end up going for a junkyard cable, make sure the ends aren't frayed at all, and make sure it slides easily, even after a little lubrication. When my cable went I had to sort through a couple to find a good one.

What other cars throttle cables can be compatable with the supra, just in case there are none at the wreckers

Toyota Cressidas, 1982-1988. The older engines have a longer cable I believe, but it will still work. Ive used an 83 cable on my 85 car, which I'm still using now.
