Ok, so I checked all the vacuum hoses within the top part of the motor and they all seem to be in good shape, no sign of decay. I took some random pics which I have attached a link, I did make a discovery tho, also attached are 2 audio files, which will be explained in a minute, I found out that the throttle cable (dont really know the correct name) yes the one that when you push the gas pull the throttle body so it can accelerate, well I should say both cables where not properly tighten, Also I noticed there is a adjustment on the throttle body that was a 8mm nut with a bolt that has a screwdriver fitting in the middle (also included in the pics). That was preventing the throttle "gate" (also dont know the correct name) from closing all the way, I do not know if it has to be or not. I cleaned the throttle body with CRC TB cleaner, also cleaned my MAF sensor with CRC MAF sensor cleaner. So when I was cleaning the thottle body I decided to mess with the adjustment screw and set it all the way back so that I could close all the gate, had to make adjustments on the cables so that it go all the way down and close properly, once I did that I assembled the parts and decided to turn on my car, I forgot to record the audio for this but it took A LOOOONG time to turn on and it seems it would have no hope ever of turning on, when it did It would totally die on me, it wouldnt idle at all, so I went back to the original position, thats where I recorded Audio clip named "nota1" is the clip I recorded when I turned it on, before I turned off the car you can hear a AIR sound or leak when I lightly step on the gas, this is pretty much the same audio as yesterday and it does take a little less to start, the car now idles at 800 rpm. I decided to turn it up some more and see what would happen, and baaam the car starts a lot faster buuut, it idles at 1000-1100 rpm which if you are in park and put it on Drive, you have yourself a good 10mph automatically, in Audio Clip "nota 2" you can hear the difference its not a difficult to start, maybe its an Air problem?
