On my 98 sentra GXE 5 spd I have a stop behind the gas pedal held on by a screw. What does that do, why is it there?

I just got my car a week ago...

thanks for any help.

Well its a black piece of plastic behind the pedal, held by 1 visible screw. it has a flat surface and the gas pedal hits that instead of the floor. i have no idea what it is...

know what you're talking about; I don't have one on my 97 200SX but my friend's 92 Sentra has it. Might have something to do with too much pedal play....just a guess.

i just wanted to know if it was there for a REASON, or someone put it on there to keep their kid from accelerating too fast or what. i was wondering if its keeping my car from being able to open all the way up...

i have one also, and im guessing that its just there to keep the pedal from hitting the floor at WOT.

grasshoppers.......

the pedal is a limiter to the throttle body, some cars have it some don't, also another safety item, DOT-wise, if you just remove it, without checking throttle plate movement, WOT will not be WOT and you risk messing up the shaft and TPS........hope this is enlightening.....

If want to check it, thats easy.
Remove the intake tube from the throttle body.
Have a buddy get in your car and put teh pedal all the way down.
Look at the butterfly in the throttle body, If it is straight in side the body then you are achiving WOT and removing the stop wont help at all.
