i just opened the hood today and saw that the linkage cable for the transmission was off of the throttle body does anyone know how to reattch it to the transmission cuz i think it detached because their is a lot of extra cable coming into the hood from the transmission.

I lost my repair book and was eondering if anyone can scan me a page of the linkage cable from the throttle to the transmission.
