If it is the check engine light then something else is wrong. Typically no warning lights are associated with the A/C.

Do you have a check engine light? You may have a bad EGR valve or maybe a vacuum leak? Are you smelling any odors, like rotten eggs?

Be sure you have inspected the gas tank for any small leaks...the smell and drip will vary by the tanks fill level...Hope this helps.

I have air con leak on my galagy 2001 auto 2.3. how can i find it and repair it?

i have a galaxy myself and the only way i could suggest to find an air con leak is to take it to an air con specialist. they wil re gas the system and add a flourescent dye. after a few days, the dye will show exactly where the system is leakin. this is not something you can normallt do yourself as they use special light and glasses to highlight the dye.

i would avoid the big car stores (ATS, Halfords etc) that advertise air con checks, as they do not specialise and do not have the specialist knowledge or experience that a small air con specialist will have. i have also found that they are often far more expensive for this sort of specialist work.

if you look in the phone book, there will probably be a few small air conditioning specialists in your area, some may be mobile and do the job outside you home.

a/c systems can often just loose gas over the winter anyway if they are not used regularly and your system may just need regassing anyway, but the specialist will be able to check if this is the case.
hope this helps

Loud noise from exhaust front end ..check engine light on dash permanent display, hyundai accent gsi 2001 manual says emission problem..make appointment with dealership, can't afford at moment...I...

Start the car open the hood. with the hood open listen and smell for the leak. Probably the frt exhaust manifold leaking. Independent mechanic can repair just as easy. No need for dealer. If the leak is bad enough you will smell exhause leak. Look for the area with the greatest amount of noise.
