I am sure that everyone has said that it is a vacuum leak by now.  But,
just in case.  Check all your hose over by the fuel injection and the
pressure plate and air filter and throttle body.  Some where over there one
of the hoses is most likely either loose, torn, or has come off and is
resting in place but not making a seal.

Hope that helps.
