Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The issue that you are describing is consistent with the vacuum pump being filled with oil from the leak at the pipe, this is common and replacing the leaking pipe will solve this issue.
