Hey guys,
My car started to idle roughly yesterday, I checked under the hood and realized a vacuum valve was disconnected, but I can't for the life of me figure out where it connects to! Any ideas would be much appreciated. Kinda gotta be somewhere tonight with it! :P

Car is an NA Fairlane, if that makes any difference.

Here is a picture:

Going by the size of that hose, looks like the hose for the MAP sensor....just behind it on the firewall.
Make sure the bottom of that hose doesn't have a crack/tear in it where it goes on a hose fitting into the intake manifold.....they are prone to this.
