There are a few area's in the engine bay to look for hoses and the leak can also be a intake or other gasket too. You can have the car "smoke tested" at a garage to determine exactly where the leak is. But what I do is start teh car, open the hood and listen for a hissing sound, move the hoses around as well. You can also spray some carb cleaner around the same areas and if the idle increases you know that's the area of the problem.
