Does the throttle body linkage move freely? Can you open and close the throttle body by hand (with the engine off)?

Sounds like the cable is binding up. Have someone get inside the car and push on the gas pedal while you check under the hood and see if everything is moving properly at the throttle body or if it sticks wide open. Make sure the car is off before you try this.

Try lubricating the cable with some lithium grease.
