Below are links to the vacuum diagrams.

The first test will be to see if the supply line to the HVAC has vacuum with the engine running. You need to see 15 inhg or more. This will tell us if the leak is before or after the HVAC control.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
