1996 Other Mitsubishi Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 74500 miles

Overnight my car, at idle, sounds as tho it's " sucking air.&Quot; (Sounds like in the " old days" when you would take the air cleaner off vs having it on). I recently was caught in flood water and am worried I have done some type of damage. It doesn't appear to hinder the way it runs or performs, just has NEVER sounded like this before. My " check engine" light has not come on, but this has been a wonderful car.I serviced it as recommended and I would love to put another 75000 miles on it. Any suggestions as to what I should check first? Please, any help you can give will be appreciated.

Hi there,

Get a length of hose, not to large in Dia, and use it as a stethoscope, listen all around the induction for an air leak, if there is one there you will find it with this method.
