More serious problems include false air entry in the induction system. The air can enter through the connecting pipe between the airflow meter and the throttle body and leak into the crankcase.

How to fix Air Intake system?

The first step in repairing an air intake hose is to find the crack or leak. To detect the leak using carb cleaner, To find the leak, start the engine and allow the vehicle to idle. Spray the carb cleaner onto the area you suspect is leaking. if you have found the leak, listen to the vehicle's engine after you spray the carb cleaner. If the engine increases its idle speed, even momentarily, you have found your leak.
You could also try this technique with water or motor oil in a spray bottle. When the engine sucks the water or motor oil in, it produces the same effect so you can hear the change in the engine.
