Check to see that the vacuum lines are intact to the "breather" attached to the underside of the hood.

Another cause ( this happened to mine) the wires going to the fuel injector can ground out on the block, find short and repair, all little tape and mine has run for 3 years!!

and it could be as simple as 'old" gas or gummy gas buildup in injectors.....
