As noted above, that leak in the VAF elbow is a big problem.

I know this is off topic, But do something about that rip in your intake, Its suckin in warm air and maybe some chunks of things, and you dont want them in your engine.

ALRIGHT, it got the vacuum hoses back on and the rip in the elbow happened like during all this because its freezing and it broke, i duct taped it and it works for now, im going to have to get a CAI, also the engine is only superdirty because we had a huge dust storm, right before someone had commented on how clean it was, oh well. thanks for all the help, you guys are a life saver

Just replace the rubber tube with a stainless steel one ... or just use some PVC plumbing pipe ... does the job ... and looking at your engine bay (which makes mine look clean) it will probably morph into the background within a few months :p LOL :D

yeah now im gonna use this as an excuse to make my parents pitch in on a CAI since its a neccesary repair, but could someone explain why this was causing the stalling? was too much air escaping or what was going on?

huh??????

it was causing the stalling because the engine was pulling in air that hadnt passed through the VAF. since the air didnt pass through the VAF the volume of air that entered the engine wasnt measured, so the engine was getting more air than the ecu was reading that it was getting.

in lamens terms it was screwing up the readings needed for the fuel injection .
