Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab

Ford F150 AC

I'm looking for schematics on a 2000 Ford F150 Air Conditioning system. I have purchased a red tek kit to recharge the system but would like to know that I'm hooking it up right before I charge it. I don't want to be into a big dollar fix just because I wasn't 100% sure before I start!

    I need to know where the low pressure service port is for sure and if I need an adapter for it to connect to my red tek gague

  • Kyle McGee Sep 04, 2008

    My system is a 134a. Red tek is a kit I bought at Canadian Tire to recharge the freon. My gague is for a 134a system and it does have a quick connect. There is a quick connect port on the left side of the motor (left side standing facing grille) but this port is bigger than the quick connect on the gague.

If it is a 134a system the port should be on the right side near the drierit should have a blue cap on it the high side should be near the front of vehicle near the condensor. the low side pressur should be 30-35 psi high side should be 130-150psi. do you have quick connects?---are the gauges for 134a it should say on the face of the guage.

I have cans of 134a to refill the ac on a 1987 ford f150 where are ports or valves


I believe the recharging of air conditioning needs the appropriate tool. You may not be able to recharge the system yourself.
Also, be very careful, you can be blinded if an attempted refill goes wrong. I am aeare of a few cases.

Recharge the air conditioner


Instructions
    • 1Start the recharging process with any left over freon you may still have. Open the Civic's hood and attach the kit to the Civic's low side port. Then, set the kit onto a place in the engine compartment where nothing can move or shift once the engine has been cranked.
    • 2Start the Civic and let the engine run until it reaches its normal operational temperature.

    • 3Turn on the air conditioning to its coldest and hardest-blowing settings. Place a thermometer into one of the Civic's air conditioning vents and monitor how the temperature drops. Once the air conditioning's temperature reaches a level, constant degree, remove the thermometer.
    • 4Open all four doors on the Civic. This will allow any colder air generated to escape, and this will keep the Civic's air conditioning for accidentally cycling off while you recharge the refrigerant levels.
    • 5Turn the recharging kit's valve all the way down and let the refrigerant charge into the Civic's air conditioning periodically, shut the valve and look at the kit's gauge. This will allow you to monitor the recharging process. Allow at least one minute to elapse between refrigerant charges into the system.
    • 6Shut the valve of the canister, once it has become depleted. Disconnect the kit from the low side port.
    • 7Detach the hose, gauge, and valve from the empty canister and attach them to a new canister of refrigerant. Reattach the kit's hose to the Civic's low side port and continue recharging the system, allowing a minute between individual charges. The can itself can potentially grow very cold and hard to hold, even with gloves. Should this happen, wrap the can in a towel warmed in water. Ring out excess water before wrapping the canister.
    • 8Place you thermometer into one of the Civic's air conditioning ducts. Keep an eye on the falling temperature within the Civic's air conditioning system. The system is charged when the temperature hits 40 degrees. Also, within the engine compartment, the Civic's air conditioning aluminum tubing become uniformly cold.
    • 9Shut the recharging kit's valve and remove the kit from the low side port, once the system has been successfully recharged. Shut down the Civic's air conditioning, turn the engine off, and remove your key from the Civic's ignition. Also, shut all the doors

How do you recharge the air conditioning?


Air conditioning uses CFC gasses to cool air. These gasses, should they be released into the atmosphere, could cause harm to the environment. Most countries mandate that a qualified person carry out the maintenance work.

If you live in a country that allows DIY AC recharging, there are kits available to cycle out old gas and cycle in new gas. You need to get the right refrigerant for your car, and most codes can be found online.

2000 Saturn LW1 ac doesn't work


A/C system needs to be recharged or repaired. Look in the yellow pages under auto repair and find shops with "radiator" in their ads, call them and ask them if they service air conditioning. If the system is shot, they can tell you before you pay for a worthless recharge. The car is 10 years old and many components in that system can be beyond their service life.

Air conditioning won't work on 2000 subaru outback


the most common cause of course is a low system refrigerent charge, this would be due to a leak, the most common cause of leakage is the front shaft seal of the AC compressor

My air is blowing warm can i use 1342a?


The real answer to your question is yes, the kit may work. Here is why you shouldn't use a recharge kit: Theoretically, your vehicle's refrigerant (R134a) should last forever. Your AC system is a sealed unit and the refrigerant never gets used up. The only way you can lose refrigerant is by it leaking out of the system. However, if your refrigerant can leak out then air and contaminates can get in. This is bad. A recharge kit simply injects refrigerant into the system. It doesn't evacuate the system of any air and contaminates.This is critical. Your AC system should be hooked up to an AC machine in order to evacuate out all of the air and contaminates in the system. The machine will then hold a vacuum on the system to verify its integrity.Finally, the machine is able to inject new compressor oil that also contains a dye that will enable the leak to be located. If you use that recharge kit, you stand the chance of over pressurizing the AC system and causing premature compressor failure. This can be very expensive. Paying a reputable shop to evacuate and recharge your AC system is much less expensive. If your AC system hasn't operated in over 6 months, it's especially critical that you have the repair to your AC system performed correctly. Your AC system's seals may have dried out and the new compressor oil will be critical in helping to recondition those seals or the seals may need to be replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted if you need help to recharge the system.

AC is not working


Sounds like the A/C system just needs to be recharged. When was the last time you had this done? Just take it in to your mechanic and he can do it for you and if that's not it for some reason, then he will be able to find the problem but most likely you need more freon added.
