My lovely little car has been sitting for 6 months because of an ignition problem. I have other cars to drive so it sat patiently waiting. Yesterday I decided to get her going, she was misfiring on #2. I swapped coils between 1 and 2 and the misfire went to #1. So bad coil, no big deal, I pulled one from my 330Ci and now she's running again, yea! I've put maybe 50 miles on it since yesterday. Today I went to the local apple orchard for opening day because they have the best apple cider donuts. On the way home I stopped at a stop sign, when I went go I heard a pop/snap as I pressed on the gas pedal and nothing. After further troubleshooting it appears as thought the cable has popped off the throttle body. I can move the gas pedal and the cable moves so it is not a broken cable. That throttle body is certainly buried down there! I have removed a lot of the ducting leading up to the throttle body and can sort of see it but not very well. Is there a common failure item here? Like something made of plastic perhaps?
