You have multiple problems. The door locks of your car have their own electric pump. Loss of vacuum causes the transmission to slam gears, not flare. The engine has no dependency on vacuum for smoothness warm or cold. IMO, none of these problems are related to the engine vacuum pump.

How long before the engine smooths out? A couple of minutes could mean a bad glow plug or two.
