Angry HELP- Cannot figure it out!

Ok I have a 98 eclipse GSX and I have had nothing but problems out of this thing. The Transfer case recently locked up and was replaced. The first day I drove the car, it was fine. I cranked it the next morning and it would die every time I'd come to a stop.Which is more than likely a vacuum leak or something. And while I woul be driving, my car would just jump like i hit the gas petal to the floor when i hadnt even touched it. And now my car will barely stay cranked. We cannot find any kind of vacuum leaks. But we found out that the vacuum hose that goes to my actuator only has about 19 pounds of air going to it so my actuator will not work for my turbo. Any suggestions on where I could steal some vacuum from or why it doesn't have vacuum? And anything on the dying of my car? Thank you for any responses.

Check your MAF on the dying issues.

Just split another vacuum line close by and use a T valve/splitter to get vacuum to your actuator.
