Check all the vacuum lines,sounds like one of them has split, or come off. Have somebody press the pedal while your listening under the hood to see if you can find where the air is coming from.
Just press the pedal enough to hear the air.

1999 E-430. Why does it periodically fail to start?


Does it try to start, but not catch? That sounds like a fuel pump going bad if you press the gas pedal twice and it starts. You should not have to press the gas pedal in an e430 to get it to start up.

Hard starting when cold. 30 sec to min crank. Runs good after start.


Hi Thomas:
Sounds like it's not getting fuel right away.
I'd be checking the choke, and also perhaps try priming by pushing gas pedal all the way down twice, spin over 2 or 3 seconds, then pump gas pedal twice again, then try to start.
None of this is valid if it is a diesel.

Brake pedal hard 2 press,can hear a hissin sound.


the hissing sound is most likely the vacuum leaking past the seal in the brake booster & that is why the brake pedal is hard because you don't have any power assistance, the brake booster will have to be replaced.......hope this helps.....cheers.

Loud Knocking when pressing on gas pedal


What you are describing sounds like you have an engine bearing failing. Do not drive it 'till you have it diagnosed and repaired (most times though it's too late when you hear it.)..... Outside chance it could be the trans flex plate but I doubt it.
