You probably found the port the assembly line used.
The fitting should be on the compressor or on one of the metal lines going to the condenser.

Freon is a Dupont trade name from decades ago,
for some of their refrigerant products
It's just--- Refrigerant --- R134a in vehicles from 1993
& later.
All vehicles have 2 a/c line ports
A Hi & a Low Port ---nothing special
The Hi is always the smaller one
You add or charge into the Low Side Larger port
The cans you buy in the store with the hose only fit
on the Low Side
I suggest you leave all a/c work to the pros
There is no way to get the air out of the hose
on the DYI Kits like you have & air will ruin the system
Your not charging anyway
That is done after a deep vacuum is pulled & all
moisture is drawn out
Ask yourself ---why would you have to add to an A/C
System. Because you have a leak to be repaired first
How would you know how much the system holds,or if you overcharge it. You can't find the larger tubing & hoses on the low side because, you don't have system knowledge.
You can ruin the system,hurt yourself with refrigerant,surely
pollute the air,so let the trained with proper equipment do
that work

Where is the low pressure port on 2003 peugeot 206

the fittings sizes were deliberately changed during manufacturer to stop the deliberate use of the wrong refrigerant in the system
ac systems do not need recharging unless there is a leak and that means that the leak has to be fixed first other wise the recharge is a waste of money
get an accredited ac specialist shop to do the job and save money.

Trying to recharge the a/c on my '92 deville...the new can doesn't seem to want to fit on the a/c under the is R-134a..Any suggestions or did we just get a defunct can???

PLEASE...PLEASE...PLEASE !!! Ensure you are connecting the can of freon to the correct, low side / suction, port...otherwise that can may explode.

You may want to also look at the decal under the hood somewhere that tells you the kind of freon that is serviced...and make sure it is R-134A...and not R-12.

Hope this helps...

Adding 134a refrigerant to the lower side service port of a 2006 saturn vue. Locating the lower side service port on the 2006 saturn vue.

This job requires special tools and special training. If you lack either, you risk SERIOUS personal injury. Injury comes VERY EASILY!

You need to address oil levels, proper and legal refrigerant recovery, system evacuation, and recharge.

You were planning to also replace the receiver/dryer, correct? It also needs the oil in it measured and incorporated into the amount of oil (in %) that would need to be added. FAILURE to address these and other issues will guarantee premature system failure and likely compressor damage.

Take this job to a qualified shop.

The air conditioning doesnt work it just blows hot air even with the ac on. i dont know whats wrong with it if everything needs to be replaced or just something simple. i know nothing about cars

What I would try first is recharge the a/s system, your car came with R12 freon, that type of freon is impossible to get these days, so you will need a retro fit kit to convert it to 134A freon, the kit will have two 134a fittings that screw on to your R12 port, so that the 134a recharge hose will go on, the low side will be the one your add freon through, it will be the thinker hose of the two, the thin one is the high side stay away from that one, you will also need one can of freon (134a), if it works, it might work for a while till the freon leaks out again, then you will have to take it it for repair, but this way you know it's just a leak and every thing else works.Good luck, let me know if I can be of more help.

1995 ford taurus how do I charge freon myself and

mcdevito75 here, I have a 96" and yes you can charge the A/C yourself and you can use the 134A, the Charge port is on 1 of the metal lines comming out the firewall mine is on the metal line just about 6--7 inches from the firewall, the kit you buy for recharge will only fit this low side port, also follow the cans directions very carefully. there may be a screw down cap on this port simply unscrew this cap, port will look similar to the air valve on your tires.
