Where is the low pressure port on a '08 town and country LX V6 Flex fuel? trying to recharge a/c ..i found two dust caps, but unable to identify low port.

the low pressure port is always the smaller fitting on the larger line. The high pressure port is always the larger fitting on the smaller line. They do this so that it is impossible to place the low pressure fitting on the high pressure port.

Finding the correct port for the AC refiller

There are two ports, high pressure and low pressure.
The low pressure is the one you need, The port is smaller than the high pressure and should have a blue cap on it. The high pressure has a red cap. I don't have my manual at the moment,so I can't tell you exactly where it is, all I can tell you is to follow the other pipe till you come to that port. Some are not easily to find. It might also be on the low side of the compressor.

Where are the high and low pressure ports for the ac on a 1990 f150 sraight six

To find the ports, you will have to follow the high and low lines from the compressor, usually not far away, and indicated with red and blue caps on the scrader valves. The low pressure line is bigger in diameter than the high pressure line. You need to know which refrigerant is being used in this system as it could be the old R-12, which was banned. Could also be an R-12 system converted to R-134a with different high and low ports.

I am trying to recharge the AC system but the quick connect on the kit doesn't seem to fit the port I found. So I am trying to get a picture of the service port and where it is in the engine compartment.

There are 2 ports, a low pressure and a high pressure port. The high pressure port is larger. Follow the lines coming from the compressor. One will lead you to the high pressure, the other will lead you to the low pressure port. You may need a tool similar to a tire valve core remover to unscrew the valve core a little bit so your connector can reach it to open the port and allow charging.

Low-pressure port I need identification

Basic AC system consists of Compressor pump (on engine), Condenser (front grill with radiator) and Evaporator (Firewall). Pump has two ports output (high pressure) and return (low pressure). Follow lines from pump. High side is usually between pump and condenser. Follow lines and find second port this will be low side (refill) port. Paint or replace port caps (red high, blue low). Also, refrigerant in system determines port size (R12 or R34).

Where do I recharge ac at

there are 2 ports one for low pressure and one for high pressure. the low pressure is bigger in diameter and is usually close to the dryer and or fender and firewall. the high pressure is near the condensor on the fron of the vehicle. if there are caps for the ports low will be blue and high will be red. low side pressure should be 35-50 psi and high pressure should be 135-150 psi

Looking for low pressure port for servicing Freon in A/C system for 1998 Chevrolet Suburban. There are 2 ports on top of compressor. Which is the low side and which is the high side?

The ports on my 2005 silverado are on the same line,which is very confusing but, in between the two ports is the metering device (orifice) which changes the high pressure gas into a low pressure gas.The two ports are of a different size,with the low pressure being the smaller of the two. You can put your hand on the line, on each side of the metering device connection and the high side will be hot and the low side will be cold
