The first place to check is a vacuum leak, large vacuum leak can be heard while the engine is running, smaller leaks will require a different apptoach. The easiest for the DYIer is to spray the intake and vacuum lines with a carburator cleaner, a change in the engine speed will indicate a leak. If there is no leak the vehicle will require further diagnostics.
