Question about 1989 Ford Crown Victoria
I have a 1989 ford crown victoria it has a vacuum leak coming from the end of the steering shaft inside the car what is that part called
Your car is likely equipped with an automatic parking brake release, which is vacuum operated. The leak you are hearing is likely this switch gone bad. Do you really need this feature in your car? Probably not, so find the hose which is the vacuum source, then disconnect and plug it. Be sure to tie it up so that it does not interfere with anything.

Run the vehicle at idle and turn off engine. Step on the brakes with the engine off and listen for vacuum leak. If you hear hissing with the brake pedal depressed it's the Brake vacuum booster......In the same area there is a parking brake vacuum release switch which leaks only with the car is in idle. If this is leaking your automatic parking brake will not release your parking brake automatically in drive.
