The low pressure port is located on the passenger side next to the fire wall. It will have a blue cap.

    it is located behind the alternator on a v 6 3.1 motor. it is covered with a blue cap. you need the 134a can adapter and hose to recharge it. it is best to have a temp gauge in your main vent to watch the temperature. I would use a ac gauge set to full understand what is happening in your system. High side pressure should be about 210 psi and the low side about 35 psi. good luck.

Go to the low pressure ac line under the hood, that is the larger of the two lines from the ac compressor, follow the line, the charging port is near where the line goes inside the car, it will have a cap over the port, remember to reinstall that cap after charging.

Step-daughter just bought a 2001 Chevy Malibu. The turn signals aren't working. I read that is probably the hazard switch on the dash. Any thoughts?


Check the flasher unit and fuses first. The check the wiring from the switch to flasher unit and from the flasher unit to the individual bulb socket for continuity.
