Hi, first time posting. We have a 1993 Escort lx with the 1.9 l engine. A little history about the car. My brother purchased it as a program car with 30K+ miles. He gave it to my son with 120K+ miles. We've just changed fluids and belts and spark plugs for maintenance and never had any major issue. It started stalling and I started looking at the vacuum lines and replaced some. I found one that starts from the under side of the intake/throttle and goes to a component I'm not sure what it is, but it has wires attached to it and then what I think might be a vacuum line continues on to somewhere under the filter housing. My question is in two parts; 1. where does the vacuum line/rubber hose land, because I found it just dangling and 2. what is the component with wires attached to it. I included a picture of the component and the end of the rubber hose.
