Loud droning noise at 3000 rpm

Asked by May 01, 2011 at 09:49 AM about the 1999 Ford Contour SVT 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If I pinch the 1 inch hose coming off the back of the air intake it goes away but also wants to stall. Is there a PCV valve or something that needs replacing? There is also some oil residue in the air intake by the filter. Please offer suggestions.
Thanks
