ok so i was driving the other day and stopped at a red light and noticed the most god awful noise coming from under the hood of my car. i got home and popped the hood and it almost sounded like a weird grinding noise but then i noticed a wire directly below the tb that was going in and out. after messing with this i noticed it came unclipped. i have no idea what this is, but if u move the clip the wire came off of it almost sounds like its opening the intake manifold-does anyone know what this is or how the wire goes back on. the car drives fine but sounds like hell. please help im stranded at the moment !!!!

Help...please

im pretty sure the wire that controls the butterfly valve came loose-my care makes thie weird noise now-so i popped the hood and noticed this wire going in and out so after doing a little investigating i found that it is supposed to go on this little black linkage that when you turn it-it almost sounds like its opening a runner in the intake-please help i have no idea how this wire goes back on

what you are talking about is the DSI clip. Maybe the wire came loose because the clip is broken. there are quite a few people on here that had that clip break. I am not sure who sells them but i think there like 40.00. Before you buy see if is just the clip that is broken and also try to put the wire back on the clip.
