My car has 77000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Without knowing the engine size and vehicle having this problem I would have to say that you have an engine vacuum leak in an intake gasket or seal. You should have the computer scanned for any lean codes then have that codes diagnosed to fix the problem.
