Vacuum hose close to firewall almost middle(a little towards the driver side). There is a junction and one of the hoses has come off the post or has a leak. I have had this happen, and it took only putting the boot/hose back on the post.

I have the above truck with automatic trans. and just purchased it about a month ago. I really like my truck but have a concern about vibration of the engine when in gear at a stoplight. I bought the truck as it was certified by the dealer with only 5,800mi. - basically a new truck with cheaper insurance and plates.
Is it common to have "some" vibration with this 4 cylinder? When I say some, I mean that you can see the steering wheel vibrate a little and feel some in the seats, but not too bad.
I had the dealer check it out and asked them if it had any recalls on this and they said that there was a computer upgrade or something of that nature and ran it through their diagnostics. When I got the truck back, it really didn't feel that much different.
Am I expecting too much or is this the normal feel for this engine?
I'd appreciate any info on this! Thanks
