Full Lock Hissing


When I put my steering wheel on to full lock I hear this hissing coming from the engine, it sounds like something is spraying out somewhere. It sounds just like an aerosol can. I can only hear it when the steering wheel is on full lock

Is this normal or does anyone know what the problem could be and if its serious?

If your holding it against the lock then it is the power steering pump. IE, DONT hold it against full lock lol

Just check for any fluid coming out. Its a normal sound tho.
