    This may be a blockage but more likely a vacuum leak at one of the hoses under the intake manifold. under the manifold, near t he alternator there is a vacuum hose, check there and see if it's split. Replacing it is very difficult and I would suggest anyone but an experienced mechanic remove the intake manifold and replace the hose.
    Good Luck
