Hi there. For the vacuum leak, look at all of the vacuum hoses on the engine and brake booster. Check to see if the hoses are split, cracked, or unmounted. A vibration could be the engine running rough from the spark plugs being old or the engine mounts are worn out. Also, the spark plugs would cause the engine to hesitate on acceleration. If you need further assistance with diagnosing your engine issues, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
