So your saying you hear some air leaking/hissing? If so, you have a vacuum leak, and just need to replace the cracked/broken hoses.

Do you hear an air sound with the engine idling and the car parked? If so, it is most likely a vacuum hose either off the fitting or cracked. The only thing I can think of if it not that, is you have an amazing air cleaner intake and it is sucking in the air.
