On my 3GM30 the cable doesn't return to the stop. I can pull it down by hand at the engine but at the wheel it stays up so that my low rpm is 1500. I've lubricated everything at the engine side to no effect. Do I need to replace the cable? Anything else I should try first?

Appreciate your help.

Have you checked to make sure the cable sheath ends are not moving a little when you adjust the throttle?

idle stop

I know the lower end isn't moving, haven't checked the binnacle end. Thanks for the suggestion.
