Toyota yaris 200 rattling on when the car is idle there is an air sucking noise around the air filter box.

Check the O ring beneath the air filter box. Put a new one, if it is absent or damaged.

I changed the intake on my 2000 expedition 5.4 it's running ruff and having trouble idling

This is most likely a vacuum leak. Check all the hoses and connections. Make sure there are no splits on the ends of the hoses. If there are no bad hoses or missed connections, take wd40 and spray around the entire gasket area on the intake when the engine is running. If it starts to smooth out, you have found the leak.

What makes a taurus se engine shake at ideal but when speed up smoods out

Generally, this is caused by either a vacuum leak somewhere on the top of the engine or dirty fuel injectors. Listen carefully for a vacuum leak [sucking air sound] at or near the top of the engine. Another way to locate a vacuum leak is to spray carburetor cleaner [aerosol can] at small areas, where there are vacuum hoses or intake gaskets. When you find the area of the leak, the carb cleaner will get sucked into the leak. This will generally cause the engine to run better.
Try adding fuel injection cleaner to the gasoline tank. I recommend the Chevron Techron brand of fuel injection cleaner. Advance Auto and Costco carry this brand.

My 98 f150 has p0171 and p0174 codes, i just had my manifolds change, new egr and dpse sensor.. I spent a lot of money on it and it keep sending out new codes... it been in the ford garage for 4 out of 8...

That could be a bad MAF sensor, check to see if its dirty. That could also be a engine vacuum leak check to see if you have a sucking air sound. If its a dirty MAF you can spray it with electronics cleaner. If you don't find any vacuum leaks and the MAF isn't dirty/ bad then check for restricted fuel filter, weak fuel pump, or dirty injectors. Start with trying to clean the MAF and check for vacuum leaks.

Its surely not turbo, its is somewhere a hole or leak in turbo air filter housing or air inlet pipe that is making noises when turbo sucks air. check the air pipes wheather they are fitted correctly. Take a keen look at air hose and close any hole with silver tape check the hose is fitted correctly in Turbo air filter housing (if not then it makes whistling noise when air is being sucked by turbo) . Clean all air filters and then give it a go.

I have a suction noise coming from my 2003

Do you here the noise inside the car or does it seem to be coming from the outside under the hood?

It could be an intake induction noise caused from an air cleaner duct hose loose or damaged, I would lift the hood and make sure it is OK.

It could also be an A/C vacuum hose disconnected or broken causing a vacuum leak. You would probably notice one or more of your heater control functions not operating properly.

Also the brake vacuum booster may have a seal leak at the dash. You might notice the brakes are a bit harder than normal.
Let me know.
