I had this problem and know how to fix it. take off the throttle body 1st. On the verry bottom there is a piece connected to it that has a hose going in the frint side. On the back side there are 2 scews "phillips head" take those off and inside there is a plastic peace that is more than likely unscrewed screwit back in and then go around the edge with a little super glue or lock tight so it does not happen again tha should solve your problem. before trying this there is a flat screw at the top that might have come loose but not likely and that could be the culperate. it should be about 2 full turn back out after bieng all the way in.. Hope I am of some help.
