Hi Marcel. Thanks for contacting us today. A hissing noise from the passenger side of the engine bay is commonly caused by either a vacuum line leak or exhaust manifold leak. If the AC is turned on, it can also be caused by leaking high or low-pressure hoses or a cracked condenser. There are several possible sources, so it’s probably best to have a professional mechanic complete an onsite inspection to determine the exact source.
