geez, if it wasn't for bad luck, you'd have no luck...

Do elaborate on the string trick!

hooked the string on the part where it controls the butterfly valve and ran it outside to my driver window and gently pulled on it to get going and then used my cruise control to speed up and slow down

Actulay I can't take credit as it was dave who has mentioned this trick too me a week earlyer as he was in the same situation.... the worst part is befor it snaped the cable freyed a bit and stuck in the open postion and my car just red lined in the middle of downtown at 2 am ... very embarasing !

thanks again dave!
