You may have a vacuum leak, get a can of spray gumout, spray the vac lines and maniflod area, when the idle changes, youve found the leak! You want the engine running and spray on the outside but do direct the stream onto the hoses, if it is a vacuum leak, the engine idle will change speed, then you have detected a leak, repair the vacuum leak and see how it runs! Are you talking about the TV cable that runs from the transmission to the throttle linkage? That only comes into play to downshift under hard acceleration from 3rd to 2nd gear. The other part is an anti stall dashpot for deceleration.
