Hello dsouris: Locate the A/C accumulator on the left inner fender well. This will be a round aluminum cylinder with two lines coming out of it. Follow the large line that runs back to the firewall. You should see a shadder valve in this line. This will be the suction line or low side line. This will be the line used to charge the A/C system. If you need further help please just ask. If this information please rate the information as it helps.Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

Searching for the location of the a/c low-side service port in a 2003 Monte Carlo to attach auto air conditioner R-134a with Stop Leak

The low pressure port in the AC system is between the evaporator which is in the heater/AV housing in the dash. The line between that part and the compressor is the low pressure or suction line. You should find a connector in that line that has a cap on it. When you take the cap off, it is a snap on quick disconnect with a "tire stem valve" in it. Be sure to screw the cap back on with you are finished.

Thanks for using FixYa.

2003 monte carlo a/c works of and on,already put freon in twice and the security light omes on and also the traction active light comes on

Re the a/c. Get a can of red tek sealer. make sure the engine is cold or you won't get the connector on to the low side port to seal properly. Follow the insrtuctions that comes with the can. Just adding the refrigerant doesn't stop the leak

trace the 2 aluminum lines coming out of the firewall. The one that goes to the compressor has the low pressure port you are looking for. It might be on the dryer (silver cylinder).
