Just replaced my oil pressure sensor and the day after I started having problems where my engine would studder sometimes while idling and sometiems shut off while slowing down or turning. I think one of my vacuum tubes is cracked so this would be the cause I'm assuming

used carb cleaner to spray onto the vacuum hoses. Replaced affected hose.
