Your vacuum can stores "a vacuum" so that your climate controls still work under acceleration. you can pressurize it with no more than 15 psi to check for leaks. I fit leaks replace it.

check it first, it could be a bad vacuum hose or solenoid valve. hoses on older cars tend to dry out and crack.

I checked the vacuum a while back. And got nothing out of the can.
But the in line for the vacuum read good.

I thought I was having a vacuum problem causing my poor gas mileage.
It's a bad FPR.
