Get a can of spray carb cleaner and with the engine running spray all of the vacuum lines and hoses, if the idle drops down then you have found your leak. If no leak there then spray around the intake manifold, again if the idle drops you have found your leak. Mine was a rotten hose on the fuel vapor purge valve, quick fix once located.

You're looking for leaks where the various vacuum hoses are connected. Leave the hoses connected and after starting the engine, start spraying the hoses where they connect and if the cleaner gets sucked in through a vacuum leak, the engine RPMs will change.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.

Have you looked for/located a vacuum leak?

Rokmen TT, Rokmen control arms, Novak NV241 cable shifter, JKS 1.25" BL + 1" MML.

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.
