What is this part, causing my car to suck in too much air and not turn on?

My car seems to be sucking to much air in and because of that my car won't stay on. I have reason to beiliev this is causing it. I dont know if that whole part is broken because it feels loose (i can wiggle it around alot). Or is it just the piece of hose that is missing? Please tell me the name of this part. I need help quick! Thankyou.

On the 328, one side of the ICV has the hose that runs from the intake boot to the valve and the other side has a grommet and it plugs into the bottom side of the intake manifold. There's a support bracket that holds the ICV in place. The photo is a little fuzzy but it looks like the support bracket has come loose and the ICV has fallen out of the intake manifold. Feel up underneath the intake manifold and you should be able to feel where that plugs in.
