    hissing noise after oil change

    I just got an oil change on ny '02 WRX wagon and now when I accelerate I hear a hissing kind of noise from the front of the car when I accelerate. It's tough to describe sounds, but the best I can say is it sounds like a metal contaner being filled quickly with air or water. It goes away as soon as I take my foot off the gas. Any ideas? I don't know if the oil change is just coincidental, but it's suspicious.

    I also like to scream at 7000RPMs in 1st gear...... and them slam it into reverse, sidestep the clutch, and do backwards 4-wheel burnouts while still moving forward.
    It's fun... try it

    I'd love it to be something normal like my intake, but I can't imagine that I've been hearing it for years now and just noticed it now.
