The best place to post this would be under "General Tech Help", a mod will likely move it there soon so you can get a quicker answer Hisses can be vacuum leaks, does it happen at idle, while moving or both?

What general area of the vehicle seems to have the hissing sound coming out of it?

Get back there & pinpoint the location of the hissing. There's a few vacuum hoses, & also the brake booster. Try using a scrap piece of garden hose as a poor-man's stethoscope.
