I've had a number of seemingly unrelated problems lately,
but the latest is stalling out. I fully cleaned out the throttle body/IAC and after I got it all cleaned up and as expected, nothing changed. When I turned it on I got rough idle for a minute and then it stumbled and died while parked.
I did notice one wire going into the pigtail was broken. Before I take it back to the shop, I want to know if there could be an easy fix. Since its so close to the pigtail I cant get enough wire to butt them together. One member said I may be able to push the metal clips out and then reattach the wires. Does anyone know if this is the case for this clip? I tried attaching a big battery ground cable to the broken wire but it didn't do anything. It's a dark cable with a white stripe, but given it's age I cant tell if it's ground or just a dark color.
Could a broken cable here be the cause of my stalling out when parked and while taking my foot off the gas when driving? I don't know if it will run without a properly connected IAC.
