to check look at all the hoses around engine and make sure they are still attached or they may be barly on the nib and you need to put them back on, i once was told you can take some kind of spray and squirt a little around the end of the hose and the engine will rev up if it can get in (hence a vacuum leak) not sure what it was though i think maybe carbcleaner idk for sure ask someone about that, its not bad to change the fuel filter, if you have the right tool for the job otherwise it is a PITA
