When I open up the hood, I need to raise up the hood and hold it for 5 seconds to make the hydraulic lift work to hold the hood in place.

I do not hear any "gas" sound from the hydraulic lift.

Is this expected behavior? Or I need to replace the hydraulic lift?

This is not expected behavior for a hydraulic strut that supports a hood or trunk lid. It will not improve on its own, and may collapse without warning. Do not rely upon it.

The strut should be replaced.
