Engine Cable / Line Got Cut While Driving


Recommended Posts

Hi there guys, I'm hoping you can help me.

Today while driving I stopped at a set of lights the engine went super low on idle and stalled out. So I quickly started it up again and drove it home.

When I got it home it was idling all funny, much below 1,000 rpm. The engine is quite a bit louder and it almost sounds like a lumpy V8 there is also quite a bit of vibration.

So I looked around for the problem at first I thought it was the throttle body but I soon found this. May as well let the picture speak
for itself.

I am a noob when it comes to engines and I don't even know what this line is, it's coming straight off the centre of the engine (please don't laugh at me :) ) I imange the other half of the line has fallen down the side of the engine below the air intake somewhere, how do I go about fixing / finding this?
