    I just bought a 2006 vw jetta 2.5l and when I was checking the airfliter. I look at the air tube going to the filter box I seen a lot of little drill holes in the tube. And I can’t figure out why. And when the car starts in a cold start the engine revs up high and stays like that until you put it in drive.
