    I'm assuming that it is a 3.3 liter engine. If it is the vacuum hose under the coil pack should go to the carbon canister in the passenger side fender. Hope this helps ya.

    I would say that the starting problem has nothing to do with the vacuum hose. If the hose has vacuum on it and you can find where it goes I would plug it off. A vacuum leak can cause it to idle weird and also you can lose fuel mileage.
