Yes, a vacuum leak would do it. I would also re check the mounts and make sure nothing is rubbing or touching metal or the body to cause the vibration.

The mounts are new and good, it is the engine itself that is shaking or thumbling I will say. Can u tell me which vacuum hose you think will cause this problem so I can go straight to that hose an check. Just name of the part that the hose go to. Thanks
