XA Brake Boosters

Mine has just started making a real air/hissing type of noise and the engine'a idle changes when i press the brake. Anybody else had this problem here and what is the cause of this? Also does anybody know the price of a new booster ?

Re: XA Brake Boosters

sounds like the rubber diaphram inside the booster has a has a hole in it causing a vacume leak which leans out your engine when you press the brake pedal. You can get yours rebuilt.
