Where is the AC Low pressure valve on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix?

I need to know where I can find the low pressure side valve under the hood of my 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix. I got a can of R134 refrigerant and want to add it but I am not totally sure where the low pressure valve is located. Can someone please help me and specifically detail where it is located and what it looks like on on the 99 Grand Prix? Thanks a lot. Appreciate it very much.

Sometimes its behind the alternator real close to the firewall. Find the bigger of the two hoses and pipes the low side is always bigger. Also the cap is blue and the fitting for the charging can will only fit on the right valve.

Where is the low pressure port for the ac system?

Follow the lines from the A/C compressor across the engine compartment. The low-pressure port is the smaller one. They're near each other.

I have a 2001 Grand prix, the AC was working great then suddenly last week the compressor won't kick on. I changed the relay under the hood with the horn relay and it still doesn't work. Where do I track...

Look for a low pressure switch near,or on the dryer,it may have went bad,also have the freon checked ,if it is to low,or out,it will not come on.

99 pontiac grand prix smells hot after driving 30 minutes

If the temperature gauge looks good (under 3/4) its all good. If not, then there is a problem. If it smells hot inside, like moist and humid you will need to replace the ac filter, that can be located under the hood, close to the water resevoir, you will have to pull the ruber type gasket that is on the edge of the hood/wiper cover.

1999 pontiac grand prix gt dual climate control not working prope

The sensor is located near the hood latch area in front of the radiator. If the temp is reading incorrectly, chances are it is defective. You can purchase a new one, they relativly inexpensive.
Disconnect the electrical connector then remove the sensor.
Good luck, let me know.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix...I need to know where the intake is to add a/c coolant

Under the hood towards the front of the engine compartment is the condenser. This has two lines on it. One is larger than the other. The larger line is the low pressure line with a blue cap on the service port. To fill the freon you must get a can with a hose that hooks up to this fitting. While the a/c is on max, open the valve on the freon(134a) can and the compressor will start to run. When the line starts to sweat check the temp coming from the vents, the white sticker under the hood will tell you the a/c system capacity. Don't overfill it. Good luck

My 96 grand prix's air conditioner compressor will not turn on when the switch is activated. I have replaced the large fuse under the hood but that still hasn't solved the problem. The indicator light on...

that light goes on mostly likely cause you need freon. the compressor will not go on if there is no freon. buy a userfriendly can at autozone. put it in low pressure valve(blue)  if it works but no cold enough air check under your hood for the proper pounds or ounces needed of freon.  if it doesnt work its your compressor.  GOOD LUCK! :)

I need to specifically know where the AC low service port is located on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP?

Not sure what year your car is but on 2004's the low side is low behind the engine on the pax side. Near the alternator.

Indicator lights

I think that there is a button located under the dash at the right side of the steering column. To reset the low tyre pressure warning you need to press the button immediately after inflating all tyres to right pressure.
