Summary:
      THE HEAT SHIELD WHICH PREVENTS THE THROTTLE CABLE FROM COMING INTO DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD WAS OMITTED. ALSO, THERE IS INSUFFICIENT CLEARANCE BETWEEN THE THROTTLE CABLE AND THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD. IN EITHER CASE, THE HEAT FROM THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD DAMAGES THE THROTTLE CABLE, CAUSING IT TO BECOME DIFFICULT TO OPERATE OR CEASE OPERATING, NOT ALLOWING THE ASSEMBLY TO RETURN TO IDLE WHEN PRESSURE IS REMOVED FROM THE GAS PEDAL.
Consequence:
      IF THIS OCCURS, LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL CAN BE EXPERIENCED, WHICH CAN RESULT IN AN ACCIDENT.
Remedy:
      DEALERS WILL INSTALL A STANDOFF BRACKET TO INCREASE THE CLEARANCE OF THE THROTTLE CABLES FROM THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD.
