On north American cars, try the PCV line as it splits open at the elbow.

Also check the spark plugs and the plug leads.

Run the fuel down, refuel at a different station, and see ifit continues. Sometimes you can get a bad tank of fuel, orget contaminates in your tank.

It sounds very much lke you have a leaking vacuum hose. Either it has deteriorated and needs replacing or it has come off its fitting.

When you do repair or replace the hose you will probably cure the source of your idling (and hihssing) problem(s).
