Without being there it sounds like your vacume booster seal is blown out. does the sound come out near the pedal inside the car? if so you will be replacing the booster.

How to find a vacuum leek wen it sounds like its right befind the brake pedal?


If your car has power brakes, a slight hissing noise when depressing the brake pedal is not unusual. However, if you are having issues with the brake pedal felling stiff or hard, then you may have a vacuum leak in the power brake booster. If that is the case, it must be replaced.

Air leak sound from break pad ?


a brake pad is a small solid piece of steel with some brake material glued or riveted to it. i can't even think how a brake pad could make any noise. If you mean the brake pedal makes an air leak noise when you push it down, then i think you need a new vacuum booster.

I replaced the battery and now my Brake, ABS, VSC trac and VSC off lights are on with a warning sound constantly emitting and the brake pedal does not work. I push it all the way to the floor and nothing...


No, your brakes should have a stiff pedal regardless of anything going wrong electrically in the car. You better look for brake fluid leaking out. Try not to let the reservoir run dry while you're looking for the leak, as that will introduce more air into the lines. Let us know what you find and if we can help any further.

No braking assist, rushing sound (air escaping)wheng brake pedal applied.


HI this sounds like the vacuum booster has a leak in the diaphragm. That is why you hear that sound when you push on the brake pedal. With out the vacuum to help this leaves you with a very stiff brake pedal. You will need to replace the Booster which is located behind the brake master cylinder and on the firewall. Good luck

I have a 1998 chevy s10 it has a good brake pedal with the engine off but with it running the pedal go'es to the floor and you can hear air at brake booster


Check for fluid leaks and your brakes. If you see no leaks and your brakes are in good shape replace the brake master cylinder and bleed the system. The air you hear is because the pedal went to the floor. If the booster goes bad the pedal will get so hard you can hardly push it at all. I think you will find if this happened suddenly either you have a major leak or the master cylinder went bad.

Air escaping


this noise is a vacuum leak at the power brake vacuum booster due to a tear in the booster vacuum diaphragm, u should have this replaced ASAP, it the leak gets worse the brakes will become very hard to push and will limit your ability to make a safe and timely stop.
