Why my throttle cable gets stuck. But only in Reverse.

It happened 2 times before ... and it didnt happen for about 3 months. Then las night i tapped it lightly to get out of a parking spot and it accelerated little by little ... it stays at a steady 2.5k RPMS with my foot on the break. i pulled over turned off the car poped the hood ****ed with the throttle and it was fine in D. But when i went to reverse into my driveway again it got stuck again. Any ideas? It seems like WOT in N and Park but not in R.

Oh yea, and once its in R and gets stuck if i slam on the brake and put it into D its still stays stuck ...

Have you checked the cable hookups on the TB? Perhaps the slack caused either the throttle cable or the CC cable to pop out of their groove and get wrapped around the cable cam.

well if it IS the throttle plate, it would get stuck in drive too.
it doesn't take long o pull the pipe off to inspect the throttle body. go ahead and see.
