Unhappy 2003 ford focus vacuum leak

I wanted to check on the average price range for a vacuum leak? My car has been idling rough at stop lights and even in park...I have changed MAF, H2O, PCV, battery cables and more....a shop told me that it is a vaccum leak, I need to drop it off and stop guessing at possibilities.....any price suggestions that a vacuum leak will be?
Thanks

you can find it yourself and not pay 85/hr for a mechanic to find it.

If you get a can of Crabuator Cleaner and spray it on the vacum lines, when the cleaner hits the leak the engine will rev up a little (you do this test with the car running at idel) Once you find it, go uy the hose and put a new one in. 1 hr tops even for a non mechanic.

What engine do you have?
