Jeez guys, I'm sorry I got snappy. I've read tons of older posts, and the only way to check for a vacume leak that I've found mentioned was to spray carb cleaner or wd-40 on the manifold to see if the engine speeds up. That's why I assumed that everyone would know what I was talking about. In the future I will be sure to include as much info as possible about my problems/questions.
And I apologize for my mood, I need to go for a ride and clear my head...I really do appreciate everyone's help, suggestions, and ideas.
