The secondary butterfly in the throttle body could be stuck partially 
open, btdt once upon a time.  Clean the outside a bit and pull off the 
black rubber "hose" to clean the inside, carb cleaner and a rag should 
work fine.

If it's not that, it might be a big bad air leak somewhere in the intake
