Help me figure out what this sensor is and where it goes!

A few days ago I took my airbox and battery out to clean the IMRC actuator contacts. They turned out to be fine and not the source of my easy-to-stall-off-the-line behavior.

However, when putting things back together I found what looks like a sensor hanging from a wire that comes off of the harness where the MAF connector comes out. Itís just dangling and I donít know if itís supposed to be connected to something.

Does anybody know what this is or where it goes? The wire looks like the right length to sit on or around the throttle body assembly, but itís not the TPS or cam sensor.










Thanks!

Looks like...

a noise filter capacitor but I can't see the part number on it. Check Google university with the part number.

Ah, that makes a bit of sense, thanks for the help. Iím not sure what itís supposed to be attached to (looks like it has a metal prong that sat in a rubber holder somewhere), but the car is running fine.

However, after putting everything except for p1100 and p1131 codes I canít seem to figure out the cause of. The front O2 sensor is a recent replacement, so I doubt it suddenly started having problems, and Iíve checked the MAF wiring several times.

If the metal tab is an eye for a screw to pass through, it might have a ground point somewhere.
