There is surely a loose vac line somewhere. The purge line is under the fuel distributor (two nipples right next to each other), so that may be the line for the transmission modulator -- do you have a very harsh shifting problem too? If not, it may be to the EZL ignition module on the fender -- make sure that hose is connected or you will have funny ignition timing.

Can't place it exactly, as I only have a 300E and don't remember a vac tap on that particular runner.

If you cannot find where it goes right away, at least plug it, you are sucking dirty air down the engine!
