is the air filter clean ? could be some obstruction before air filter box . check air intake pipe before air filter box.


You may need a new hose.

No obstruction into air filter intake , and yes need new hose again as i already replace ,and this hose lasted a month and got hole in hose again . So i was wondering if my IAC or MAS has anything to do with it, as the air intake hose collapses when at idle as i was inspecting with hood open in yard i also cleaned iac valve so might help just gonna order new hose again .

I am having the same problem right now. I am going on my fourth air intake boot and they have only been lasting about a week but I drive for Uber and use the car a lot. My mechanic seems to think my motor mounts are causing the hole because they need to be replaced but sice the boot is made to move I find that doubtful. I don't think it's going to work. We put a new air filter in already and one new motor mount.
