I finished spinning a single, and there was one part (about an inch or two) that was accidentally thicker than the rest. After I set the twist I gave that part a little tug, and it started to separate a little. The rest of the yarn is fine, but is there any way to fix that one spot to prevent it from possibly separating?

Put a bit more twist in that section and try to 'felt' it together.

the reason it started to separate is because that part is under twisted.

The good thing is, you can thin out the thicker section too :-)  so it matches the rest.  twist generally wants to be in the thinner sections of fiber. Get some more twist into that section once you've thinned it out -- wind it into a ball up to that section, stick the ball on your spindle and add twist to that spot, then finish winding it into a ball. That's how I'd do it, with a spindle at hand.  Then I'd skein it up and wash it again, so the twist can migrate through that spot in the skein and average out with the rest of the yarn.
