Toyota Camry '98 Weird hissing noise when NOT applying brakes.

Asked by Nov 03, 2014 at 07:55 AM about the 1998 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Its like a high pitched hissing noise. Maybe
more of a whine. It stips when I apply the
brakes. I'm a new driver and I must admit I
know very little about cars so this could be
something really basic that I have
neglected. I would much appreciate any
help.
