I have already seen the diagrams and they did not help but when i had the air conditioner on it only blows out of the defroster and the floor when you accelerate then when you let off the gas it blows out of the front vents

yes,,this sounds like a vacuum leak....you may want to spray carb cleaner around the intake..it may be leaking...also you may want to remove and clean the egr valve,,it may be built up with carbon,causeing a vacuum leak from the exhaust

thanks
