Sounds to me that a vacuum hose has fallen off and the intake is suckin' air~....could be the connection to the fuel pressure regulator...could be to the egr...could be to the environmental controls~ I'd say an IAT sensor, but I'm not sure this vehicle has one~

always replace the awful black rubber (chewing gum and coal tar) with silicone that never dries out, cracks or swells...these are perfect and totally reliable~

Iv checked all hoses. But none broke or loose.
