Can the leaking exhaust manifold cause the truck to have a vacuum leak?

A truck's exhaust manifold plays an important role in its engine by carrying the engine's exhaust gases and directing them out of the truck. However, if the exhaust manifold leaks, it can cause these gases to escape into the truck's engine compartment. This can create a vacuum leak, which can, in turn, lead to a number of engine problems. In particular, a vacuum leak can cause the engine to run rough, misfire, or stall. It can also cause the check engine light to come on.
