Hello,

It sounds like you have a vacuum leak which you can find by using this guide.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-use-an-engine-vacuum-gauge

Common leak paths include the and throttle body gaskets, and of course, any of the engine's vacuum fittings, hoses and accessories.

Please let us know what you find.

Cheers, Ken

Yep, I followed the guide and sure enough I found the main vacuum line going the booster had a suck hole in it. All fixed! I love this site.
