Air con gas leaking & noises from under dash

I have just brought a S Type year 2005 diesel and had it serviced,
they said the air con gas was very low and refilled it.
I am now getting high pressure steam under the engine near to nearside wheel. + noises coming from the dash panel which sound like flape resetting.
Am I losing gas again and why?
Heater is working ok but steams up unless air con is on.

Hi jrm the smoke under the wing is the fuel fired heater and is normal. the noise is the heater motors for the heater flaps, there is a jag fix but you have to replace all the motors just ignore it.  Try changeing the filter for the heater under the left side scuttle panel thats below the black plastic panel below the screen that will help the steaming up     D

Audi TT 225 aircon condenser slight leaking from top.


Hi Andy
As Roger said take it to an AC specialist and have it checked, it will probably need re-gassing. AC gas leaks show up as an oily substance.

Air con leak


usually the evaporator is right by the blower motor under the dash.although(sorry to say) a/c leaks can be like cancer in a person.Also ask a mechanic if the expansion valve needs to be changed also.be carefull taking it out and you will need orr ring replacements in the joints you take apart .when you are finished you need someone to do a pressure and vacuum the lines before any new coolant is put in,(coolant R12 ect)and ask if the dyer needs to be replaced

When the van is started i hear a gurgling noise like water running across the front of dash. At time after the van is driven and hot you can smell coolant smell under hood.


You have a coolant leak somewhere on your motor. Your coolant is low and you are hearing the air pocket being pushed through the system.

Air con pump not engauging


Hi:

You should verify that your AC system still has a full charge of refridgerant, and if it does,
The problem is most likely the AC clutch assembly on the front of the compressor.

Since the dash light works, and the fan turns on, there is power to the system, but the compressor won't turn on if the pressure switch says the charge is low, and if you turn the switch, and someone can hear a click of the compressor clutch solenoid, but no air, the clutch assembly is probably the culprit

What are the causes of check engine light? Can check engine light affect the auto transmission system?


Have you had your air filter changed or checked recently? If you've had it done somewhere other than the dealership that could be your issue. There is a sensor that connects to the enclosure around the air filter. If it is not correctly reattached after service it will cause the check engine light to come on.
Even if you do discover the issue and correct it, the check engine light will persist for server times you turn the engine on and off but usually by the 3-4th day it will turn off on its own. If you think it's mote serious, take it back in for service.
I can't tell you how many times I've taken my Highlander in for service at a non- Toyota dealer (bc I travel for work) and the check engine light comes on bc they check the air filter and neglect to reattach the sensor. Hope this helps.
