06 gt is the hiss normal for the 4.6 or do I have a serious problem

My car hisses in the area by the exhaust and engine but I've had a problem with it boiling over rad fluid, eventually overheating due to lack of fluid. No white smoke, cap doesn't leak. Stopped boiling over after I put the rad cap on a little bit then after pressure built up turned it till it clicked and seems to not boil over now. But this hiss makes me feel like its the gasket. I'll get a compression test done ASAP but what do ya figure. Only 80,000k on it! Die hard ford lover but not feeling the love.

Bottom line is the hiss normal for the 4.6 or do I have a serious problem.

I've never had any hissing noises from mine. Is it throwing any codes?
