Not running well...

Ok soi have two problems;
1.) My brakes have never been good so i decided to bleed them and now my front reservoir keeps draining so theres a leak somewhere but i cannot tell where it is. I think the Power Brake Booster is leaking tho, bc it is really rusted on the bottom half of it.

2.) i think it could be due to the brake booster but, I think i have a vacuum leak bc i lost alot of power. I can gain any speed and start losing speed in 5th gear and also getting really bad gas mileage. When im driving it just sounds like a huge rush of air in the engine comparment

Yep, sounds like its time for a new brake booster. it is where 90 % of your vacuum is used.

If i were replacing the booster, i would put a new master cylinder on it as well, but thats just me, i tend to do more than necessary to avoid doing things twice.

The brake booster would be making that much lose of power? and is there anyway to test if it is leaking for sure?
