Thanks quick99si! I found that in that well under the driver side cabin filter, the brake booster was half submerged in water. Dont think I'll have to take her in just yet. After a lot of trick vacum work and checking a lot of hoses things seem to be good. After I got the water out of that area surrounding the booster it stopped making any water type noises when pressing the pedal. I never actaully got even a drop of water out of the booster it self but there was a little in the vacum hosing between there and the ICV. At this point it's running great and the brakes feel great. Think I'll just take it in to get a general service. I'm at at 132k on the odometer and have no idea what on this 6th engine.
