When I start the car, and the engine is in neutral, the engine revs up and down between 2,000 RPMS and 4,000 RPMS. Up and down, up and down. (Sometimes, if I crank the fans in my interior, it idles normal for a while). When I drive it, and step on the gas, it will almost redline (almost like its sticking) and then resume the normal up and down up and down RPMS.
I opened the hood and noticed the Air Mass Meter boot is torn, with a big hole in it. When I manually close the hole with my fingers, it really doesnt do much. If I open the hole further, the idleing slows down to normal.
Do you think if I replace the boot, this will fix the problem? Or do I need to clean the air intake valve? If I need to do the later, can I just unplug it and clean it?
have the same problem?
