Does the hissing sound come when the Air or Defrost is on?

Re, idle -It's usually a dirty MAF, just clean the inside of the part right behind the Air Filter with computer contact solution -Don't touch the post or wires, just spray them!!

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
