I know it's really hard to describe and diagnos(sp) noise unless you hear them but lately my 98 3.2 80,0000 mile trep has been making a weird noise and acting funny.. :crying:

Will idle in park or with my foot on the brake it sounds as if a fan is trying to come on or something, then the RPM's go up one or two notches, not pass the 1 or anything but it moves up and down making this noise while in park idle, or with my foot on the brake...

Any one had this problem?? I know it might be confusing but i tried the best i could to explain it

Hissing?

Sounds like it could be a vacuum leak. Check the PCV hoses. I just had to replace mine because it was stalling.
The symptoms you describe are very similar to how mine started. Vacuum leaks mess with the air/fuel ratio and can deterioriate to the point where the computer can't adjust for it anymore..
