Default Hissing sound when I press my brake pedal on 90 Legend

I get a hissing sound when I press my brake pedal on 90 Legend. When I stop pressing sound goes away - any idea what this is?

Check the hose on the brake booster and the brake booster in general. Have someone push the brake so you can check from under the hood.

Well, most likely if it's hissing it's a bad brake booster because it's not holding vacuum. Have you noticed a difference in how your brakes feel?

It might be the booster, or it could be a snake under the pedal.

Second Telafonics' diagnosis... I'm strongly leaning towards a snake under the pedal....
