    As the new owner of a 2003 2.5v6 tdi, I am finding my way.
    i have noticed when I park the car and turn off the ignition I can hear a 'hissing noise' from the engine bay.
    the noise seems to be coming from the area under the plenum chamber cover.
    i removed this but all I see is the air con filler connections, but it doesn't seem to be them.
    it only seems to last for 5-6 seconds approx.
    is this normal? Or is something leaking?
    is there a release of turbo gasses automatically after shutdown?
    any advice appreciated
