I had the same problem with my 1994 Saturn SC2 (1.9L DOHC) after hours of poking around, I found that my PCV valve was cracked (The tube that goes from your air intake to the top of your valve covers). Although it could be a problem with the vacum at any point. Check your air intake for cracks / leaks / gaps, and all the hoses leading to your engine.
