Hissing noise when car is turned off

After driving today I turn the car off and I'm hearing this hissing noise in the engine bay. If I were to describe the noise, it sounds like air leaking out of a flat tire. I did vtec couple times taking it close to 8300, but this might not be the issue. Also I'm not throwing any CEL either

Snake in the engine bay. Happens from time to time. Kill it before it makes its way to your third gear.

This guy got to it before it did any major hissing. True story

Did you have your A/C on ?
If so it is just you A/C making noise from under the hood.
Nouthing to worry about

Search function FTW. It's your A/C and it's normal.

yea i'm thinking that's what it is because i was hearing the same thing when i turned my car off today, i was running the a/c, and i opened the hood and it seemed to come from the a/c compressor

i also was noticing a dripping liquid so i cut a gatorade bottle in half and started to catch the liquid with it. i'll post a picture later.

but my hissing seemed to be a/c related i hope it's nothing serious

-cheers
Pat
