NEED HELP REPLACING VACUUM HOSES!

1998 Chevrolet Cavalier • 15,500 miles

My check engine light recently lit up, and my car started to idle very low and rough, so I took my car to an auto parts store and got my codes checked. No numbers came back, only a bad emissions reading or something along those lines. The guy told me I probably have a loose or leaky vacuum hose. I looked at the diagram in my car of the vacuum hoses, but I can't figure it out. First, I need to know that I'm on the right track by wanting to replace my vacuum hoses. Second, I need help locating them!

All the hoses are attached to the solenoid itself, but if I follow one of the hoses back about 3 ft a piece is attached for two lines to stem out from that hose and only one is connected in.

Do you have a emissions vacuum diagram anywhere under the hood?

What is your opinion on using carburetor fluid to find vacuum leaks?

Yes I would use carb to find vacuum leaks works pretty good.
