It should be near the compressor on the low side line. It is a huge pain to get to. Feel along the line, and you should come to the fitting.

Charge ac


The high pressure service port is located on the liquid line between the condenser and the evaporator, near the front of the engine compartment. The low pressure service port is located on the compressor manifold, directly over the suction port of the compressor. Make sure you know what your doing if you connect the wrong thing to the wrong port you can blow something up.

How do you connect a/c charger to make your central air cooler


The 1998 Dodge Caravan ac should be charged at the low pressure service port. This port is located on the suction line near the compressor. The suction line can be identified by it's size, it being the larger of the two line connected to the compressor. You must purchase a recharge kit at your local part store, which should include charging hose with pressure gauge and a can of R134a freon. Gloves and eye protection should be worn during servicing.(freon can freeze your eyes and cause frost bite to your hands). Connect freon to charging hose, connect charging hose to low pressure service port, open valves and start engine, turn on ac. If compressor won't start it may be required to disconnect the low pressure switch and jump out the connector.

The low side port is on the side of the accumulator/dryer. The arrow is pointing to a hose connection, but to the right of that connection is the low side pressure port.

How to put freon in jaguar s-type


The compressor is located underneath the drivers area towards the front. Right beneath the compressor is the low pressure port and there's where you put your freon. You have to raise the car.. follow your owners manual for jacking... you should also use a hard jack for support since you will go a little underneath the front of the car... use alight. I recommend you get the freon 134 kit that has a pressure gage  so the you can see if the freon pressure         ( pressure high full or a problem with system ) or low and needs charging

Need to find the low side a/c connect to charge my a/c...help.


The factory doesn't provide a stand alone low side charging port, the only way I see to get to it is to take off the low pressure switch, and hook your gauges to the schrader valve. This will require an adapter, though.
On my diagrams it shows straight across from the high pressure port, and is the only opening to the low pressure line.
When you take it loose, jumper the terminals together in the wiring harness, so the compressor will still run and you can charge it.
On your car it is (low press switch) on the passenger side connected to the big AC line, in front of the firewall about 1/4 of the way from the firewall to the front of the car, under some hoses
