1994 chevy PU S10 Sign In

I have a 1994 chevy PU S10 v/6 136000 miles, all at once it stared idleing rough and the power brakes quit,I have look for vacuum leaks,(can't find any) replace the vacuum unit on the power boster,check the pvc unit(ithink that what it is) on the eng valve cover

When I pull the vacuum line off the brake power boster the motor run better but not right,when everthing hook up the motor sound like it's not getting enough air and trys to stall,The motor will rev up but misses.?????

Hmmm? You are on the right track. Try plugging off supply to brake booster at the engine taking out any chances of it being the problem. There should be a "check" valve at the booster that could be a problem.

Thought: Any chance when it ran lousy that it fouled up a plug or two now messing up the diagnosis?
