    If your issues is due to excessive slack, you can adjust it by loosening the lock nut and tightening the adjuster nut to get the proper tension then re-tighten the lock nut. Also check that the return spring is not binding or broken.
    The boot is to keep dirt out and prevent the cable from binding.
    But if road grime got into the cable jacket and is causing binding , you can try to spray lubricant where the cable comes out of the jacket.
    If that doesn’t work you may need to replace the throttle cable.

    Yep that’s true. Just for your own sake, I would recommend replacing the torn throttle boot right away as that is likely the source of your problem. At which point, you can go ahead and clean the map sensor inside of the throttle body and see if that fixes the problem. Be sure to disconnect the negative battery cable before you unplug any of the electrical connectors.
