Sounds like you have a vacuum leak or the check valve isn't working 
properly.  If you have a hand vacuum pump, with the car off unplug 
the line off the manifold and try and get a vacuum(it may take quite 
a bit, since there's a reservoir).  If you get it to hold one, unplug 
from the pump- it should hold because of the check valve.
