Sounds like your radiator might be leaking. I would check (SAFELY) under the hood when you hear the sound. Do not open the radiator or overflow cap when the engine is hot. You will be severely burned. Where is the heat gauge? Is the needle closer to the H than the C? You can also look for coolant leaking underneath the car when it has cooled down, and also running it by a shop for a mechanic to take a quick look at it. Best of luck!

Is it your battery? I've seen batteries sizzle if there is a voltage problem
