I have a 1998 Chevy Lumina which just started kinds "clicking" under the hood when the brakes are applied. Not coming from wheels or rotors. Sounds like from the booster. The car still seems to be stopping ok but the noise may be a symtom? Help?

Do you
have the same problem?

Thanks! Check valve? Would that be the plastic elbow with the large (I assume) vaccuum line that heads around the back side of engine?
