I have the same problem. and according to the manual mine is due to a bad wheel speed sensor in the front driver side hub. it has something to do with the abs system.

Could very well be a vacuum leak and power brakes require vacuum!! I advise getting it checked ASAP.

Hear air when i push down the brake pedal


If the pedal gets hard then you either have a vacuum leak from the hose coming off of the brake booster going to the intake manifold or the brake booster itself is faulty.

Air coming from the brakes


That's the first sign that your power brake booster is getting ready to go out, replace it.

1996 GMC Jimmy, flutters when in idel


You could have a cloged EGR valve on the jimmy, which can be removed and cleaned with carb or injector cleaner which you can buy at any parts store.
As for the air leak on the brake system on the truck. That's bad and needs to be replaced or repaired, taking a guess that the sevice brake valve gaskets may be bad.
Good luck and hope this helps.

check 2 things first one is their is a plastic check valve that is inserted into the booster (under your hood) then goes to a vaccum line ,then to the engine, pull it out of the booster and check the valve it should be L - shaped. it might have a hole in it causing a vaccum leak. be carefull pulling it out not to break it just pull straight out. if that is ok put it back in. then your problem is going to be the brake booster the big black round case. sometimes the diaphram inside the booster rips causing a vaccum leak which causes a hard brake pedal and you have to stand on the pedal to stop. then you will have to repace the whole thing but not the master cylnder unbolt master cylder with the brake lines connected, the lines will give then disconnect brake pedal arm under dash inside of trk their should be 2 nuts or 4 buts under dash on inside of firewall near brake pedal then remove booster pulls out from under hood. there is not much to replacing them.
