you know how the throttle cable is connected to the transmission itself, Now would the transmission fluid leak out if the rubber piece broke off.

    The rubber piece where the cable goes into the transmission, if that is broken, then yes, it will leak!

    The cable you are describing is commonly called a "kick down" cable. It down shifts or "kicks down" the transmission when you press the accelerator pedal to the floor.
