    I been having some issues with my throttle body so been looking at it a lil closer then usual. When i was checking her out.. on my air intake tube after the air flow sensor, there is a small outlet for another small black hose about 1/2 inch tubing.. it looks like somebody put a small capnut with a smallhole in it to prevent the air from flowing freely.. why would someone do this??? removed it... plus with the nut in there, the hose don't go onto the airtube all the way like its supposed to.. hmmm:confused::confused::confused:
