    hissing sound?

    afternoon all

    had a problem with my 2001 sri, in the last couple of days ive been hearing a hissing sound from my engine, its near the top right hand side of the block, stuck my hand as far down as it will go and cant feel a thing, anyone got an idea wat it could be?
    if its of any relevance wen u turn it off you can hear it depressurising for 2 or 3 seconds?
    cheers guys

    cheers for the quick reply, ill b honest im not fantastic on car knowledge, checked the steering and it feels fine, if it was the pump would it just die or take some time to wear out?

    cheers

    Ta.

    If you look down the back on that side you will see a white bottle with a black lid on it. Remove the lid and see if there is fluid in it. They are electric thats why you hear it slowing down when you turn it off

    bottle is full, but hissing is definitely in that area just cant get hand that far down to feel anything, hard to tell wether its actually hissing now or a high pitched mechanical scream/whine?
