Rough Idle/Part Identification

started my car this morning and it was idling rough. It was like i was giving it gas then letting off. I tried to drive around the block, but the breaks seemed stuck too. I though it was the TPS sensor? But it ended up this part being off and not connected. I put it back on and everything works. However it seems kind of loose and not as snug. What is it so I can replace it soon? I know I sound dumb, but I am a Network Administrator/Telecommunications Technician, not an automotive guru. I have used this forum before and you guys are great. I have fixed my car several times because of this site. Oh btw it's a 2001 Taurus SES.

That looks like the EGR system vacuum harness. What you're pointing to is an elbow that's part of it. Go to the dealer parts department and show them if necessary. My mother's 1999 Sable LS had them same problem. The elbow dry rotted and would not stay on. Replaced the EGR vacuum h+arness +and it was fixed. Dpn't remember what it cost, it was a few years ago.

I can't find the part online so I guess I will go to the dealer. I was trying to stay away from them.
