Engine won"t idle

I just bought a 1974 914 LE
While going over the engine i found a wire that was disconnected from the temperature sensor on the intake air distributor. So i plugged it in and the engine started to run rough then stalled. I removed the wire and it idled fine???
Would a defective temperature sensor cause this to happen? Now I know why it was unplugged. Any thoughts. How can i test it?

Thanks
Terry

Learn this website, my son, and for as long as you own a 914, make it your bible:

914 D-Jetronic Parts and Troubleshooting

Seriously, the part you describe is the intake air temp sensor. Some people disconnect it to richen the mixture.
