sounds like water on a stove...

hi there, as per title...ive heard a water hissing sound coming from the engine bay after i turn off the ignition (especially after ive put my foot down).

(i guess it could be the sound of metal cooling - but it seems more like hissing and only for a few seconds.....but i havent seen any evidence of water yet)

is this normal? anyone else had this?

It is just an aluminum pan that is dripped onto instead of the ground.
