Default Problem with loose gas pedal and throttle cable attachment??

Okay so today i was putting a k&n drop in air filter on my 02 ranger 4.0. And there was a noticeable power difference anyway, i noticed that my gas pedal was loose, as in i could pull the gas pedal twords my body with my foot and then it fall back to its original position. So i opened up the hood and looked to see if i could tighten the throttle cable. I took off the 4.0l sohc plate and i noticed this red capped black plastic wire that look like it fitted on the throttle cable attachment. i found where the wire leads to, and there is a thing on the left of the truck and it says "2002 ranger gas" and that's it. It fits back on the throttle cable attachment, but it wont stay, every time i open the throttle it comes off. I have no idea what this is at all, could someone tell me? and also, i noticed a green plastic thing with a spring on it that connects to the throttle cable and the gas pedal. i need to know how to tighten this. Thanks.
