Sorry about the confusing post. Im wondering why the vacuum is so greatly affected by shifting into gear. At park the engine idles with 17 Hg" of vacuum. The moment I shift into reverse or first gear, the vacuum drops to 10 Hg". Im just wondering what is happening inside the engine that causes this significant amount of drop in Vacuum?
