Question about 1993 Mitsubishi Mirage

1 Answer

Recharging A/C freon

I have a 93 Mirage and the freon leak out of the high pressure valve; I already fix that problem. However I can't locate the low pressure valve to be able to recharge it. I've looked all over, followed all the a/c lines and yet the only thing i found was the high pressure side. Really hope you guys can help me with that. Now, once I actually find I might need a few tips on the actual recharging process.
In advance for any help provided!

    there's only one small problem with that; the recharging kit i got is made to only fit the low side. So i still got to find the low side.

Where do I add freon on a 2006 Ford Mustang GT?


If your system is blowing warm I would recommend having the system evacuated and check for leaks. Just adding Freon will not give you ice cold A/C. There are two valves, low side and high side. Usually the plastic caps are blue for low side, red cap for high side. If you use a commercial A/C machine to service the vehicle, both valves are connected to check pressures in the system and also to fill the system with the correct amount of Freon. The low side (blue) is located at the firewall near the dryer and the high side (red) is usually on the passenger side near the radiator.

93 Allante AC Compressor won't come on to recharge system


On most models you would need to jumper the low pressure switch while you are recharging the system. There should be a low pressure switch on the low side line and a high pressure switch on the high side or on the compressor.

Hi I bought a used volve about 6 months ago. Lately when I use the ac the far left vent blows out warm air and it also is not blowing out as cold of air as it used to. I was going to add some more freon...


> I was going to add some more freon and the gauge that came with the can does not fit the valve. There are normally two valves on the AC lines; one is the low-pressure valve (inlet to the compressor), the other is a high pressure line leaving the compressor and going into the exchanger. The low pressure valve is the point at which Freon is added and pressure is measured with a single valve. The high pressure valve is customarily used only by service personal to determine compressor performance and should never be used to recharge the system; they are intentionally different to avoid rupturing the the Freon container. Trace all of the lines to be sure if you have found the right one to use for recharging and measuring the 'low' pressure side.

How do I fix a Air condition blow out hot air?


Go to your local auto parts purchase a a/c charge kit for about $69.00, find the low pressure(suction) fill port, there are two ports in every a/c system one is a low pressure side used primarily to fill a system with freon 123a or the like and it is the larger valve mounted on the line, then there is the dangerous high side valve, this is a smaller diameter valve mounted to a smaller diamet a/c line, this is under extreme pressure so donot attempt to fill this high side with freon as it can backfire on you and cause injury.
The low side fill kit will not fit on the high side port so thank godness for that.
start the vehicle put the a/c on full cold high blow fan speed, start filling the low side with a can of 123a freon+oil additive, which equals one pound of freon and check the inside a/c vents, getting cold? If its perfect then you are done, the system may have a very small slow leak and if it only takes a one pound can to fill it once or twice a year you are ok, if it takes more you may want to add a second pound can of freon 134a containing a dye additive that will work its way into the system and show you where the leaks are by exposing a color once it hits the air coming out of the systems defective seals etc.,also they sell a sealer + freon one pound can that can be used to try to fix the leak without having to get too expensive on the repairs.
A car's air conditioning system only hold like 2 3/4 pounds of freon, so in the event you happen to over fill the system a high pressure blow valve usually mounted on the a/c compressor will purge off the excess, but let me warn you they blow off without any warning and can startle you. Always think safety first, wear protective equipment. Work Smart, Work Safe.
Happy Motoring!!!

When i turn on ac it blows hot air


Normally due to low freon. Also, notice if the a/c compressor clutch engages, as it will not if the freon is low.

Where is the low pressure valve for the recharging the air conditioner on a 97 Olds Bravada?


it is located between the compressor and the accumulator. the quick disconnect valve is smaller than the high pressure valve so you can't make a mistake using the single recharging hose.

Where is the low pressure port for the a/c located


If you can follow the a/c lines look for 2 valves, may have black or different colored caps on them. The small one is the low pressure port. If you are looking at recharging your ac system make sure that you have the a/c turned on full blast when you go to add the freon. Also pay attention to your a/c clutch. if it is clicking on and off for short periods at a rapid rate you definately need freon. You may also want to get freon with stop leak and leak detector added already so you can check for leak (in case you hadn't already thought of that)

AC Wont charge after replacing components


whenever the ac system has been opened it should be hooked up to a vacuum pump designed to evacuate the ac system of any foreign debris and oil etc and after should be able to hold a vacuum to show that there are in fact no leaks then if all is ok at this point you can then charge your ac with the proper freon specified for you car when the pressure reaches satisfactory level the ac compressor will then cycle on you should not bypass the low pressure switch
