Default Camry CE: loud hissing sound from under the hood when making left turn

When I make a left turn at low speed or no acceleration, my
2000 Camry CE makes an obvious hissing sound from the left
side under the hood. I don't hear the sound when turning
right. It started out about three months ago. The Toyota
tech at my dealer didn't found anything unusual two months
ago. Gradually the sound is getting louder and more
obvious. Now I can hear it even when I slow down before a
red light but driving straight. What could be the cause?
Could it be serious?

It is apparent you have a large snake entangled in the left portion of your
steering rack.

Rather than take it to a dealer suggest you drive to the
ASPCA as they know how to remove asps.

Be very careful checking under the hood in the mean time.

Best of Luck

Apparently your teenage daughter's trouser snake, or that of a neighbor's
daughter, has escaped and taken up residence under your hood.
