First inspect every single vacuum line connection, looking for cracks and loose connections. If you find no obvious defects, then Start the engine and then using a spray can of WD40, spray all of the connectors where the vacuum lines are connected and the length of the lines. When you hit a leak, the engine will change revolutions as the WD40 is sucked into the intake and burned. You will notice the difference. You can use FI Cleaner, but WD40 is much safer. If you still do not find the culprit, take a close look at the Brake Booster vacuum diaphragm.

You need to take it to a Ford dealership with service department, they can then put your vehicle on a machine that they hook up to your vacuum system and pump smoke through it to find the leak. Usually cost like $100.00

To find a vacuum leak. the vacuum hoses should be sprayed while the engine is running. A solution of dish soap and water sprayed on a leaky vacuum hose will cause it to blow soap bubbles. Spraying both the hose and the connectors should find the vacuum leak quickly.

Clean the 1994 Sable transmission at a car wash. This will make it easier to find the leak. Keeping the fluid full, check the transmission frequently to see where the leak is.

brake leakage? or vacuum assisted vacuum leak?

Spray some WD-40 around where you think the vacuum leak might be. When the WD-40 is sucked into the engine you will hear the engine smooth out or rev up a little. PRESTO-that's where your leak is.

most vacuum leaks are in hoses that are disconnected or have holes in them you can also take a bottle of water and spray it along the side of the intake and base of the carborater if the motor bogs or you here it suck the water in you have found you leak but it can be a leak under the intake and that is a bigger problem to find buy a can of starting fluid and spray it near the gasket and vacuum hoses and if the engine increases its rpm that is where the leak is

where is the leak? are you not getting good suction? If your vacuum isn't picking up like it should that is most likely not a leak but clogged filters. The only reason I ask is that I recently took apart my whole vacuum(2 hour process) only to find out that it was a filter that I didn't know about ( of course it was easy to get to but took me taking apart the vacuum to find it). After I cleaned it my vacuum was like new. no more dust in the air and it picked up perfectly.
