    Yes, the check engine light is on. My car also is acting almost like it's missing when I am sitting in park or drive stopped at a light when my air condition or heat is on.

    I have a 2000.Elantra, When i first got it ,It was runing rough ,Change plugs in it first, If it still is missing after you change the plugs then get spark plug wires for it ,If it is running better ,Your check engine light still might be on , But just take it to a auto Parts store to get them to hook up the scranner to clear the codes, There is no charge for it,

SOURCE: not ready codes

There is a long drive cycle for this issue and it is a tsb so it should be free. Have them call hyundai tech line to get the drive cycle. Its so long i could never type it out for you. Its pages but it works. If the dealer gives you any problems call hyundai consumer affairs and they will take care of it for you. the number is in your owners manual or ask a sales person. Hyundai cansumer affairs will do anything to make you happy. Hope this helps good luck.

No picture to show you, but it's on the right hand side in the engine bay either near the power steering pump reseviore or near the firewall (or somewere inbetween). Anyway, chargine the AC system is done at the "HIGH" side port (not the low side). I assume when you say 'fill' the unit, you're talking about "Charging the System with Refrigerant'?

Could be misfire. You need to get a code reader to find out what the trouble codes are. You can then better know what to do next. Spark plugs could be the problem. They are easy to change on the four cylinder, and the V6 is a bit of a chore as the intake plenum needs to be unbolted to change the three rear plugs. Get the codes read! best of luck!
