Ok, question pertaining to this cable. My car runs like crap when it is in it's plastic holder. But when I take the cable out of the plastic holder and it rests against the manifold, it runs like a champ. Any ideas?

I believe the cable controls the intake flap. So it seems that the car runs better when the flap is more closed. Does this mean the computer is running a bad air/fuel mixture causing it to bog down, quite noticeably? Would this then indicate a bad MAF sensor?

Any ideas would be appreciated.
