I got myself a 1995 NG900 Convertible. I'm not mechanically minded, but I figured if I was going to learn, the best way to get started was to dive right in.
So I've fixed a couple of minor bits and pieces and I'm feeling both pleased with myself and a bit overwhelmed when looking at...
So I'm working on cleaning my IAC since I've been having some rough idle and high idling issues, then I took off the plenum engine cover, and found this: http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j163/drivebyrachko/noname.jpg
What is it? Obviously unplugged but could this be my problem??
