so just as i was driving home the other day, as soon as i pulled in my drive way, i began to instantly notice my 2002 gs, began to shoot craps, felt like a misfire at first. bogging engine at idle. and threw a check engine light. but i opened the hood heard a sucking sound. while the car was still running. i noticed on the throttle body where there is an air leak.

this plug type thing near the bottom front of the throttle body, is the culprit to my knowledge and guess. i can feel the air being sucked in around this. im guessing there is supposed to be a screw holding this plug all the way in. has anyone else had any issues with this?
here is another picture just to get a better idea of where this is located

so basically just find a video or thread on how to take off the throttle body, then get a matching screw, screw it in, put throttle body back in place? is that all there is to it in your opinion? thanks for the help, much appreciated.
