No air coming through induction 96 stagea

No air coming through induction 96 stagea

Hey guys I don't know if my account is the same as the one I introduced myself on cause I think it logged in through Facebook... anyway wondering if anyone can help shed some light. 

I don't know much about cars and by much I mean f all really. 

But my Stagea (96 RS) isn't sucking air through the intake. Upon having a look I see the sensor thing in/on there. It looked fine, I checked the connection and it was clean. 

I don't even want to drive it to the mechanics cause when i was driving it and it started to happen it didn't feel good and no air is not good. 

I searched on here and saw about air mass sensor? Is this it? Broken? 

 

Thanks and here is a pic of her

What?

Does it run? What is the actual problem and what test are you doing?

Trace the piping from the throttle body/intake manifold all the way along the intercooler piping and see if a hose has come loose or split. It would be making noise somewhere along that sucking in air from before the air filter.

Without air it won't run. At idle it won't suck much air - have you tried winding the throttle up? If its not coming in the front intake its coming in somewhere else so just check all the way back to the turbo intake.

    I'm switching to NOS soon, but Horse Flavor Fresh Air is what I use until then.

    Don't ever try the beach flavored fresh air, tried it once, there's still sand coming out of my exhaust every day.
