Question about 1997 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Where do you add freon in a 1997 chevy malibu. Not familiar with engines at all and don't have many tools. I have bought freon in a can with a little hose but don't know where to add it. Please make your answer very easy to understand. Thanks.

The low pressure refrigerant port is near the firewall, just after the receiver/dryer. You'll need a gauge and preferably an ac test manifold. You can use the manifold to add refrigerant up to the point where the system maintains the pressure level in the green area. There should be a blue cap on the low pressure valve.
I believe your malibu take's 12 ounce's of R134, don't over charger the system. You'll blow O rings and worst kill the A/C compressor.
Good luck and hope this helps. Here is a link for A/C recharging. http://www.geocities.com/vantaray/air_conditioning.htm

You are in for a challenge. Most junk yards don't keep cars or parts that old. I suggest you spot just about any 1997 Chevy, Olds, or Pontiac Sedan, plus or minus two years, buy the owner a Coke, while you climb underneath, and have a look and take a picture or two.

A.c. not blowing cold


First off you 2006 vehicle contains no Freon R12. It contains R134 refrigerant. You have a leak or you would not need to add refrigerant. It is illegal to add refrigerant without repairing the leak. Take it to a trusted A/C specialist and have the leak repaired. They have the proper tools and expertise to add the correct amount and repair the leak.
