If the car is a automatic then it sounds as if the linkage is correct!! All of this is to allow extra tension on kickdown cable. The switch you are describing is for decell-shutoff, emission control. There is a white plastic grommet that wears out & creates even more play than designed. Main thing is that at full throttle the throttle plate is completely open!!
