Yes my frend open the bonnet and stand infront of the car, on the left hand side between the engine and the boddy there is a black round container with pipes going into it. next to the container there is a vacume switch, 99% of the time this pipes going into the switch is brohen or the pipe is leaking.

This car should still be under warranty. If I had to venture a guess based on experience, I would say that the insulators on the coil packs might be leaking. Take it into your nearest dealer and see what they will do. Under warranty they should also cover a rental car. Let me know and I can see what else I can do for you.

When going up hills is the engine bucking and missing? Also for the hard start warm problem, check the fuel pressure regulator for leaks into the vac line.

Poor acceleration would be from the misfiring, so start there. As Ruben said, do a code scan for trouble codes. Does it misfire all the time, or only under acceleration? Use insulated pliers and pull the plugwires off one at a time (and replace) until you find the misfire. The misfire will not change engine speed when removed, but a plug that is firing will slow the engine noticeably, maybe even stall it. When you find the misfire, it may be a bad sparkplug, bad plug wire, or the coil for that cylinder.
Be careful with the plug wires. Before you begin, loosen them from plug and reinstall, so they are easy to pull off when engine is running.
