Unhappy Strange Noise after crank...

Ok so let me tell you a little about my car. Its a 2002 GT. Only about 86,000 miles on it. A couple weeks after i got the car i noticed a strange hissing like sound right after the car cranked. It doesnt do it all the time but every once in a while it would do it. I've been searching for hours trying to find someone who had a similar problem on the site. But i finally gave up and decided to post something.


Thank you.

The hissing sound could possibly be a vacuum hose with a pin hole in it. I cant think of what else it might be unless you mistaking the sound of the bearing's in the pulleys for the hissing noise you said it don't do it all the time now does it do it when the car is off or no ?
