2000 Plymouth Neon Vacuum problem? i think ..

My 2000 Plymouth Neon shakes when I try to take off fast, like it feels like the engine is jumping.
Usually happens around 20mph, i can prevent it usually by starting off slow
Someone said it could be someone with a vacuum (by the way i know nothing about cars)
Also said might be some cables
How do I check my vacuum or whatever?
And is this really bad for my car? its been going on for a long time now

Neon 2000 plymouth _my problem motor surges while idling

fuel line has a sludge blockage, check the line for dents you will have to get the line replaced if there are any dents that could be the problem - if there is a fuel line filter remove it blow out the line with compressed air, there may also be sludge in the gas tank this is best cleaned out by a mechanic who has the time and patience and knows what he is doing. Its a sign your gas tank is slowly corroding and will soon have to be replaced...

Car shakes when I hit the brakes, but its not the rotors.

If it does this when you are stopping it could be a strut or a caliper locking up. If it does this when it is idling then it is most likely the Master cylinder or more precisely that vacuum line that runs to the top of the booster having a leak or having too much vacuum. The 2000 had the option of ABS and if you are feeling it in the brake pedal then it could just be the ABS acting up. It was Optional in 2000 and not installed on all models.

2000 plymouth neon, heat not working. heats only when car is moving? Please help!!!!

sounds like poor circulation of engine coolant. When stationary, if you increase the engine revs, does it blow hot ? if so, then i think it may be the water pump, that needs to be replaced. Have you lost any engine coolant, low level would also cause this problem. If so, then you need to see where you are losing the water and rectify that. Hope this helps
