    When Im parked and depress the brake pedal to put it in gear I hear a hissing sound...like a vac leak or something, but there is no effect on the brakes...varying pressure on the pedal varies the sound. Is my booster going bad? Something else?

    Yep, Do you also get a slightly rough idle when doing that? Then it's time to repair or replace. Good Luck

    I think I did notice a slight change in the idle....depending on pressure applied

    I can find replacements but no rebuild kits. Someone has to sell them if they are being rebuilt...

    Check the grommet where the vacuum line runs into the booster.
