No, this does not belong there. The air intake hose should be free of any object so that it can function properly and keep the flow of air moving. Put on a pair of disposable gloves and remove the nest

You said the intake air duct is a large ribbed hard plastic hose but what is it attached too. i only found a soft ribbed hose


The engine on one end and the air cleaner filter box on the other. See typical picture of a Ford Taurus engine air intake hose.

I have a 2002 chevy blazer it dies when i go to stop and has trouble picking up speed after pushing gas


Could have a vacuum leak , Is the check ENG. light on ? Could need spark plugs, plug wires ,distributor cap . The IAC motors ,idle air control motor passage could be plugged with carbon. Bad mass air flow sensor could do it. Check for critter nests , found that cars that sit for a while , squires and rodents like to make nests under the hood . I have found air boxes full of dog & cat food. They take insulation and make nests. Check the Air Cleaner Restriction Indicator
The air cleaner restriction indicator is located on the intake duct between the air cleaner assembly and the mass air flow (MAF) sensor.
If the area inside of the clear section is green, no air filter service is required. If the area inside the clear section is orange and Change Air Filter appears, replace the air filter.

My 1994 nissan d21 loose all power


Check the cable that connects the Gas pedal to the throttle plate in the intake manifold. Cable could be streched or breaking and not opening the throttle plate all the way.. another easy thing to look at is just past your air filter is the Mass Air meter.. open it up (take the large hose off) and clean it. there is special cleaner for this job.. its a spray available in any auto parts store. You replaced the CAT.. is there any other possible blockage in the exhust system.. this is a classic symptom of a blocked exhaust. To check this you would unbolt the front part of the cat and run with a open exhauset just to see if it corrects problem. Very loud but a last ditch choice. Check air filter?? I have seen rats nests in airfilters in the winter.. this usually causes the engine to smoke from too rich mixturee.. but the fuel inj systems are so smart now they might adapt to a blocked air filter and reduce the amount of fuel.= going slow.

My 2001 malibu is blowing cold air out of the heater. why?


Two reasons are common and then theirs some other things that happen too. The first reason is even though the cooling system has coolant in it and maybe the recover tanl appears to be filled enough the system has air in it and it;s in the heater. the second reason id the heater core is stopped up as theirs no valve shutting off the coolant flow you can remove the hoses and wash the core thoughwith a garden hose and then reconnect and refill any missing cooant anf it fixes most of them. he next thing that happens is the air blend door does'nt move forn hot to cold for many reasons 1) the air blend door motor failed ( has a gear box that fails too) 2) the blend door is stuck ( this causes the motor to fail) The blend door is broken ( as it stuck and the motor tried to force it and breaks the place with the motor fits inton the blend door) 4) the heater box is filled with rats nest or animals nest and the air doesn't go though the heater core.

Where is the air filter


    The air filter is located in the large black plastic box that is on top of the engine. The warranty suggests replacing it every 50K miles.

    To change the air Filter on an HHR:


    It will take some time, so be patient.

    1. Disconnect the air intake hose to the filter box. It is at the left rear of the box as you look at it from the front of the car.

    2. Disconnect the MAP sensor wiring.

    3. Disconnect the coupling to the engine intake.

    4. The filter box is help in place by two ball and socket type retainers located on the back corners. Grasp the box and lift up firmly to lift it free,

    5. Turn the assembly upside down. There are seven torx screws securing the cover of the filter. Remove them and replace the filter.

    6. Reverse the process to re-install the filter box.

Car starts fine, but dosent run


unplug your mass airflow sensor and see if it will run more consistently is wont run great, but better if there is a problem with it, it is located in line of the air intake coming off the air box, if that helps look inside the air box for a rats nest plugging the air meter please rate -jeff
