What is the tire pressure on this car?
My car makes a static or hissing sound (like radio left on no station) inside the cabin but coming from the engine area. When I shut the car off you can hear the noise slowly stopping.......almost like a releasing pressure sound. About 6-8 seconds after the car is off, the hissing fades out. Could this be an AC problem?
