You mean you hear air in the cab down by the pedal. If thats the case your power steering assist is leaking. Its the big black unit behind the brake master cylinder. It may set a check engine light at times for lean condition.

SOURCE: brake hissing noise

Sounds like it could well be the brake servo unit.

SOURCE: on occasion front brakes staying engaged while

Well, guess I don't need to tell you this is dangerous and that your front Rotors are probably trashed.

This sounds like either a bad Master cylinder or a leaking Brake booster. There can also be a bad check valve on the Vacuum line plugging into the Brake booster. There is a rather large line with a plastic fitting, sometimes a 90 degree fitting on the end and the check valve is in the plastic

You can test the Brake booster with the engine running and using an approved Brake cleaner safe for rubber and plastics. Cover the outside bottom of the hood so spray does not get on your paint. Then spray around the Booster. If the engine RPM changes, you have a leak. Save the actuating rod, and replace the Booster. Spray the check valve, if RPM changes replace it.

Now for the Master cylinder, pressure gauges can be attached to the front fluid discharge to measure if the internal pistons are sticking. But you may spend more Labor in testing, than the part is worth.

My reasons for choosing these parts as defects are that your "Brake or ABS" warning lights are not on so the problem would be before those monitoring devices. The Vacuum system is not monitored and you hear hissing. The Master cylinder is not monitored before the ABS unit.

I hope you find my solution helpful.

My brake pedal will not budge, and a hissing noise present when running


The stop lights won't go out until the pedal is depressed, as there is a switch which is activated by the pedal.

A hard brake pedal is probably caused by a defective servo. The hissing noise is probably an air leak in the servo.

Switch the engine on, open the bonnet (the hood..) and see if you can locate the hissing - that'll probably be in the brake servo area.

If you don't know what a brake servo looks like here is a generic image:

Hissing brakes


IT is probably a vacuum leak in the brake booster. With the pedal going to the floor There is either no brake fluid or you will have to bleed the system. Replace the booster and bleed the brakes starting at the longest line first

Sounds like a possible air pocket in the braking system. Do you know how the bleed the brakes? They may need to be bled. Also, if you've added brake fluid recently, and didn't put the cap back on, it could create a suction. Another note is to check the cap to the brake fluid reservoir. It's rare, but, it could be bad.

Hissing noise pedal goes to the floor


Sounds like a broken brake line. The broken line has emptied your master cylinder leaving you no fluid and that's why the pedal goes to the floor. Very dangerour to drive in this condition, be careful.
