What could be causing this to happen
Expert:  Steve replied 11 months ago.
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
the most common cause would be an intake air leak or failed crankcase vent valve.
other possible causes would be a severe airflow restriction, low fuel pressure or failing airflow sensor.
