Its actually not advisable.It does not make any good for cars performance.But yes it does not affect much to the cars performance.
Its not good for cars performance.In some cases the car overheats due to holes in air intake .

    For the sake of this discussion, the phrase "intake system" is being used to describe the duct work feeding air to an engine prior to the throttle-body, including the large duct, filter, and any other parts thereof.

     Air intake system which involves cutting holes in the side of the OEM air filter box which is erroneously thought to increase air flow to the filter. Unfortunately, all of the air drawn into the filter through these holes is hot air from the engine compartment

    The main disadvantage to all of these is the fact that they are drawing in hot air from inside the engine compartment. Intake air temperature is very important whenever performance is a concern. It is a general rule of thumb that a engine will loose one horsepower for every additional ten degrees that the intake air temperature is increased. The engine compartment of an automobile is a very hot place, with heat radiating off of the engine block and head, the exhaust pipe, and air passing through the radiator which is full of 180 degree water. it is no surprise that under hood temperatures can easily reach over 220 degrees. Even on hot summer days when it is 100 degrees, the potential intake air temperature with these hot air intake systems is 120 degrees over the temperature of the outside air. It is very easy to see that any performance gain from reducing restrictions of air flow is quickly lost from increased intake air temperature.

Check the intake elbow to be absolutely certain it doesn't have a rip or tear in it (them) where it connects to the throttle body, and on Mass Airflow Sensor. There can be no leaks there. Get a spray can of Mass Airflow Sensor cleaner and clean the MAF. Remove and inspect the ribbed elbow, checking for holes worn in it that could leak air. If the amount of air entering the throttle body differs from what is sensed by the MAF sensor, the mixture will be wrong and make the engine run poorly. If there is a leak before the MAF sensor it doesn't affect the running of the engine. If you haven't run Fuel Injection cleaner in the gas, try STP Super Concentrate (2 small bottles or one large). Also check vacuum lines are not cracked (if so replace them). Throttle body must have a good seal to the intake manifold.

I have a 2003 mustang and its making a low pitch hollow sound when i stop in air intake pipe to carperator when i stop and the idel goes up and down like it going to die.what could be making it do...


there is no carb on that vehicle. the place you are talking about where the intake tube leads up to the engine...the throttle body. that hollow air sound is typical if there is an aftermarket intake inlet present. the problem sounds like an idle air control motor. it is responsible for stepping up the idle when the a/c is engaged or coming to a stop in an automatic transmission vehicle. or basically if there is additional load on the engine...high beams, etc...your intake tube around the mass airflow system or around the throttle body is loose or torn somewhere and the MAF sensor isnt reading the airflow going into the engine causing the PCM to dial down fuel and affecting idle could be as well. take off that tube and inspect the fitment and for tears or holes then replace.

I have a 2009 dodge charger. I wanted to change my intake to a cold air intake. i notice there a hole where the original is at on the bottom. Does that need to me covered or not?


in my opinion about cold air intakes, it is actually better to get a K&N drop in air filter.
you will get the same effect except the filter won't be sucking in HP robbing hot air from the engine

TOOLS NEENED ......
FLATE BLADE SCREW DRIVER/STAR SCREW DRIVER/10MM/ QUARTER IN DRIVE RATCHET WITH 5 INCH EXTENTION/CARB. CLEANER OR INTAKE CLEANER/LAXTEX GLOVES./ TOOTH BRUSH
SPECIAL TOOLS REQUIRED ( AIR COMPRESSOR) WITH BLOW GUN
WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WHEN PERFORMING THIS TASK!!!!


START BY CHECKING ALL VAC. LINES/HOSES
MAKING SURE ALL IS CONNECTED.

IF ALL LINES LOOK AS IF THERE FITTED OK.
NEXT REMOVE AIR INDUCTION SYSTEM , THIS IS THE PARTS START
AT AIR FILTER BOX AND IS FITTED TO THROTTLE BODY.
REMOVE THIS PART( THERE WILL BE A WIRE GOING TO THIS PART(MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR) CARFULE NOT TO DAMAGE, UNCLIP WIRE GOING TO SENSOR.
NEXT LOOK IN SIDE THROTTLE BODY NOTICE THERE IS A BUTTERFLY TYPE PLATE.
YOU WILL NEED TO PROP. THIS PLATE OPEN , THIS IS DONE BY USING YOUR FINGER(CAREFUL NOT TO HURT YOUR SELF)
YOU CAN USE A SCREW DRIVER TO HOLD OPEN BUTTERFLY
MAKE SURE YOU DONT USE A POCKET SCREW DRIVER , YOU NOT WANT IT TO FALL IN THE INTAKE SYSTEM.
YOU MAY NOTICE THAT THERE IS A SMALL HOLE NEAR BUTTERFLY
TAKE CARB./INTAKE CLEANER AND SPRAY IN THROTTLE BODY/BUTTERFLY/SMALL HOLE.
TAKE SOFT TOOTH BRUSH AND LIGHTLY BRUSH AROUND BUTTER FLY AND AROUND MATING SURFACE OF BUTTERFLY, USE CLOTH TO CLEAN CARBON ( TRY TO GET THIS CLEAN AS YOU CAN , USE CARB. CLEANER.INTAKE CLEANER THREE OR MORE TIME.( ALSO SPRAY IN WELL VENTALATED AREA.

Wont stay running if is its idealing rough and discharging thick white to grey smoke


HI. This white to gray smoke will be a strong indication of a rupture within the block seal(head gasket). Generally, when the head gasket ruptures, or shrinks, this will introduce coolant into the cylinder chambers, thus, inducing the burn - off affect. This issue will cause the discharge of the white to gray smoke you are noticing at this time.

The head gasket must be inspected, along with the intake manifold gasket for visible damage, ro leaks. The leaks may not be noticeable from the outside if the gaskets if the rupture is internal. Due to the fact that you do have discharge, this will confirm that the gasket has failed.

I would advise to perform this test. Kindly pull one spark plug away form the head, and crank the engine. You will need an assistant to observe the spark plug hole for coolant spillage. While you are cranking the engine, if the assistant notices that there is coolant spillage coming out of the hole during the cranking process, this will confirm that the head gasket has rupture. Another indication of gasket failure will be the rough idle. A rupture gasket will induce low compression, thus, affecting the combustion rate of the engine. You can confirm this by having the engine bock pressure tested.


NOTE_ IF your check engine light is on, have the codes pulled asap.

Nissa pickup wont idle at all


Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed and stall, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Wont stay running when in gear


When the air filter is replaced, sometimes the tube between the air filter and the air intake manifold gets torn. If you have an air leak on the tube, it will cause al kinds of jumping and stalling issues. If a tear or hole is noticed, just put some tape over it for a quick check. If that works, replace the tube. Paul

Mileage per gallan isn't what it used to be


There are a few factors that affects fuel mileage,your vehicle is still pretty New and all emission related components should still be functioning at the peak performance. here is a check list of other items that may will affect fuel economy, from this list you will be able to determine what may be affecting yours.
  1. LOW TIRE PRESSURE or bigger tire size.
  2. VEHICLE IN NEED OF MINOR TUNE-UP SPARKPLUGS+ AIR FILTER.
  3. CHANGE IN DRIVING HABBIT(driving faster on highway) OR MORE LOCAL STREET DRIVING or carring more loads.
  4. Brakes hanging up or not releasing completely while driving (not very usual but possible).
  5. IF you added a rear spoiler/wing/wind deflector etc.
Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA.
