My wife has been having some trouble with her car lately and I noticed that this is sticking whenever you cut the car off:

It's the big gold part in the middle.It takes roughly about 3 seconds after cutting the car off but you hear a "hissing" noise and then the little plunger will unstick. I can't figure out if this is the problem even though I suspect that it is because parts aren't supposed to stick.
