Default Hissing noise

Hi all,
I am getting a hissing noise as if air is being sucked in or released from somewhere near the radiator filler cap/ left hand side of cylinder head.
this happens whenever I switch the engine off and lasts for about 10 seconds.
The radiator is full and the top hose is pressurised when the engine is running.
I cannot see any splits in any hoses anywhere

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance

Check for vacuum leak near the solenoids.

Jona, these are the solenoids tryingbe mentioned, they may be mounted in another place on your PT but they are one place to look for vacuum leaks. They are numbered 1, 3, 2....

Thanks for the reply guys, however mine is not a turbo model therefore I don't think it has the solenoids as described.
Thanks for taking the time though.
