Hi there. It seems that there is a vacuum leak on your engine. Check all of the vacuum lines and the vacuum brake booster for any cracks or breaks on the lines and hoses. Replace any hoses or lines that are cracked, broken, or missing. If you need further assistance with your engine idle being lower than normal, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
