Is it possible to have a vaccum leak at the port on the throttle body to the purge solenoid? Not talking the line itself but where the metal goes into the throttle body. I was spraying with carb cleaner around there to see if the new throttle body gasket was working and I noticed it stumble, I concentrated the spray right on the port and it kept doing it but I'm not sure if its coming in from the vacuum line(I will zip tie it tight tomorrow to rule it out) or if it's leaking down and getting in somewhere else.

Some tubes on TB/TBI is manifold vac, not ported vac.
M vac tube w/ holes can leak all the time.

Ahh damn it, looks like the spray was comming in through the iac, I have it tight and a new o ring but it's still asking it in there. I think I'm gonna pull it off and silicone it as well to help out.
