    Could be throttle body gasket.
    If you know a garage with a smoke machine,it will make it easier to find
    and save you some time and money.

    This is the Idle Control Motor doing its job. If you take your snorkel off you'll hear the hiss from the rear half of the throttle body. No worries its normal.
