If its a vac hose it will have vac in it when the engine is running, or you will have a pipe on the intake pulling air where the hose is supposed to connect.
You may be able to look at a similar vehicle to figure out where the hose goes.

Sounds like the injector in #1 cylinder is not working. Unplug injector and check for OHM reading. The spec for your injector is I believe at around 10-14.5 OHMS. If out of spec, replace it. If that's OK, than check for 12V on one side of the connector going to the injector. If 12V is there, than you are getting power. The other wire goes to the ECM/computer. You will have to trace it to the computer and check for continuity from the injector connector to the ECM/ Continuity should be present. If no continuity is found, than you have a broken wire. If continuity is OK, than the ECM may be the cause. There could be other causes also, like engine mechanical issues, such as burned valve, bad piston, plugged EGR passages on your model Sentra or headgasket. Start with checking the injector and post results. I think that you will find, that its not any good.

I scanned my suburban an it says misfire cylynder 7. i jus had new heads an all put on a month ago. had a valve barely tapping..... over a week got a lil louder... this morning i was driving an the light...

Call him up, it sounds like that head is going to have to come off again. You definitely have a serious problem at # 7. Maybe a valve keeper that wasn't all the way in or possibly a bad lifter. Either way, don't drive it until it's fixed, it'll just make it worse.

Rule 1 ....WD40 is non-flammable. It used to be an effective starter spray for diesels. Unfortunately it now contains a fire retardant to prevent the rev you were looking for wont arrive.
It does work well with easy-start/ether though.
I suspect you found a vacuum leak and sucked WD40 into the intake....If u think u did you'll need to clean your plugs.
A strobe lamp to check the spark would be a good idea. Also if a lil squirt (VERY LITTLE) of easy start doesnt produce at least a backfire, your spark is out.
