Most likely it is the vacuum acuators that operate the air flappers. They tend to rot and need to be replaced. You should check each of them to be sure they hold vacuum. You will need a hand held vacuum pump/tester. The whole vacuum system for directing air needs to completely checked as well as the 7 way vacuum valve assembly which switches the vacuum to the flappers. Sometimes the valve gets plugged up. Take it out of the car and bench test each circuit for proper operation.
