Default VACUUM LEAK PLEASE HELP!!!!

I have a 2001 mustang gt and i sounds like it has a vacuum leak and it goes in and out I tried to find it before and couldn't find anything but yesterday I found out where its coming from I guess it's some type of a valve right in front of the throttle body its rectangle and about an inch tall and 2 inches long. It sounds like it's opening and closing but I have no idea what its called and I'm guessing it not suppose to sound like that If any has had this problem or knows what it is PLEASE let me know.

I was going to say the pcv valve, but that's on the passanger side valve cover. Are you sure it's not coming from there?

Click the image to open in full size.If you look below step 11 you will see a black rectangle box that attaches to the throttle body in the corner of the pic thats where the sound is coming from

Have you done the rev modd by changing your gasket in your IAC ?? Which is what that black box is connected to. If so then i believe it should sound like that and its not a leak

Nitrous is like the Hot Chick with STD's. You wanna hit it, but you might regret it.

Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary… that’s what gets you.

if you're hearing intermittent sucking noises around that "black box", then its more than likely just the IAC regulating the idle. pretty normal
