    u need to pull a vacuum on the system, but u are wasting your time because if it is that low on refrigerant then it has a major leak.

You have to let it take some before it will stay on. The clicking is because the refrigerant pressure sensor is showing that you dont have enough refrigerant, this is why it keeps clicking off. Let it run for awhile with yoru hoses attached and see if it starts to stay on longer. Once you get a certain amount in, it should stay on as expected.

I am looking for the low port of my 96 avalon to put freon in it. HELP PLEASE

Under the hood on the far back wall passenger side you'll see what looks like an air hose connection. It may have a protective cap. You can access the low port there. The system uses Refrigerant 134a.

So i parked my car yesterday and took the key out to find out park, but reverse. now i cant start my car or change the gears! i can still put the keys in and out and turn it but the car wont start or shift...

Put the key in, turn it forward 2 clicks like normal. Make sure you push the brakes all the way down and then try to shift the gear to park. Ya, cars wont start in gear, they made that way. If it still wont go in gear, try turning the steering wheel left & right. Sometimes the wheel lock can mess with ya. If not still, you need to call a mechanic. Cuz actually, if you were in reverse instead of park, the key should have never came out. Also make sure the key is in ALL the way.

My security light keeps comeing on and i keep having to wait 10 minutes to start my vehicle because ill turn the engine over and it wont start cuz the security system locks it up.

First you have to see if you have an aftermarket remote start installed. If you do then there is a problem with the way they bypassed the passlock security system. Drop the dash and get to the steering column on the truck. At the column you should find a 18 gauge yellow wire that has been cut and spliced into. It should be the thinner of 2 yellow wires that maybe cut. Put them back together or make sure they have a good soldered connection. If you have no aftermarket starter then you may have a bad ignition swith because the passlock is built into the ignition switch tumbler.

When the car is on it wont move with the e brake down and the car in nutral when u put it in gear it wond go cuz the brakes are locked up... but wen the cars off it will roll cuz the brakes releas

Check the drums on both rear wheels. You may have something sticking after they heat up, but when the car sits and cools down, the brake will release. So pull both rear drums and check the pads and shoes.

Car wont go in 1,2, or d but will go in r

I had this happen to me last year on my 98 contour se. i was at a red light, in park cuz it was acting wierd. i put it into drive when the light was green, and it just sounded like it was in neutral. first second and drive all sounded like neutral but reverse worked so i reversed across 3 lanes of traffic. turns out, its cuz my transmission busted and it was cheapest to get a new one, which is nice in the long run cuz now my car beats mustangs (some) when i race my friends lol. but thats bad news for u if u have the same issue, because u gotta drop a couple thousand bucks for a new transmission, good luck to you. more questions - just email me id be glad to help.
