Sorry I cannot help you with your A/C issue - I have never hear of anything like you are describing. fault code(s) were set in the powertrain control module when the check engine light was on and will need to be read with a code reader or scan tool. The stored code(s) will indicate a part or system failure which will need to be checked out. You may need a qualified technician to listen to the noise from your engine in order to determine the cause.
