Hello, is the check engine light on and have you had it checked for codes with a scan tool? Do you hear a hissing noise from the engine?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I found the problem to be the rear PCV hose. I did NOT want to subscribe to any monthly fee style of service, hence I bailed.

No problem thats why I was asking if it had a hissing noise indicating a vacuum leak in the pcv system.
