    2000 Town & Country Minivan - Hissing noise coming from the back on
    passenger side.

    Before I get under the van to do a detail inspection, I though a quick
    question may help.

    While driving, it continously hissing on and off as if the air is
    deflating from somewhere...

    Fuel pump? It will sound like a gas leak.

    It could also be part of the A/C. I forget what it's called but it's the
    valve block that releases the highside pressure to the low side pressure.
    Whenever the A/C is on, it is in operation and may be audible. With most
    Chrysler products, the A/ is on whenever the defroster is selected, so
    you'll pressurize the system and could hear the noise.

    This might make more sense because your rear A/C unit is located in the
    passenger side, rear corner. It even explains why you hear the noise after
    the ignition is turned off. (Listen closely near the glove compartment and
    you'll hear the same noise.)

    As long as the A/C compressor is cycling normally, there probably no leak in
    the system and nothing to worry about.

    Hope this helps.

  4. I have an 01 LXi with the same issue. I think that it's that "load
    control" thing that has something to do with balancing the shocks. I
    don't think that it's the A/C because it happens even when I don't have
    the A/C on. What do you think??
