Sounds to me like you are in need of a new accelerator cable bushing. The 
old foam ones eventually just fall apart and leave a lot of people stranded. 
I actually had to use the cruise control once to get me home.
About $5 from the on line parts houses and some major twisting of the human 
body to get it in there.
