Question about 1996 Honda Accord
They are two fitting depending what year this car is? this car should have one red cap ( small port) blue cap ( big port ) you will want to use the big port. if the vehicle came from the factory with r134a in it then the hose will only hook up to the charge port so you cant really go wrong there. just dont over charge the system and check for leaks after your done

No there is only one low and one high side service ports.You have a bad expansion valve on the rear a\c unit.To properly replace the valve,you must first recover the freon from the system.Then remove the cover over the rear unit.Then from under the vehicle remove the two a/c lines from the unit.Then remove mounting bolts and remove rear unit from vehicle.Then you remove the screws that hold the two halves of the case together.You will now see the expansion valve Use extreme care when removing the fittings from the valve.It is very easy to kink the copper lines.Reinstall in reverse order.Be sure to evacuate the system before recharging.

Recharge the system through the low side fitting, with the engine running you will need to have 25-30 psi on the low side gage, add freon a little at a time until this pressure is reached with the engine running and the compressor engaged.

Make sure the pressure is 25 to 45 psi on the low side and that the pipes are getting cold on the low side.
Could be the vacuum controlled motors inside the dash.
Set climate control to hot then cold or the temperature control lever from hot to cold and listen for the vacuum motor operating the flap inside that changes the flow from the heater core to the evaporator inside the dash area.
Good luck to you.
