Where is the low pressure port ?

That port would be located at the rear of the passenger side fender well under the hood. It's kind of against the firewall. Be carefull of moving parts as the front of the engine is right there. Good luck

Can you describe where I would find the low pressure port for the a/c system on an '07 Chrysler T&C? I found what I would think would be it up toward the back/left side of the engine compartment. ...

You missed the correct port alright, that is the high side. You don't want to connect to the high side. That coupling on the refill kit you have will only fit on the low side. Those fill ports are usually covered with a plastic cap that looks like a tire valve cap to keep dirt out. There are two lines that come off the AC compressor, follow those back until you find the valves, the low side is the valve your quick connect will fit on.

Line that carries freon. What does it look like?

It is an aluminum line that goes from the firewall to the compressor--this is the low pressure or return line. There is a second smaller line that goes from the firewall to the radiator--this is the high pressure line. The system is charged using the smaller port on the larger, low pressure line. The port looks like the valve on a tire, but is larger. There is a similar port on the high pressure line, but it is larger yet, and your recharge hose will not fit on it. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Were is the low side so i can charge it.

The low pressure port is the port on the larger of the two metal pipes. Find the compressor and follow the smaller metal pipe back to the firewall. You will come across the low pressure port. Normally the cap covering the valve will have an L on it. Normally you cannot connect the can to the high pressure port as it will not fit. Just make 100% sure you are connecting to the low port. Clean off the low pressure port cap before removing it. Any debris that gets in the system will ruin the compressor so be very clean.

Where is the low pressure service port on a 2002 gmc 2500hd with 6.0L? Can I "jump" the low pressure switch to activate the clutch? Thanks...

Always check the thick pipes vs. the thin pipes for the ow pressure service port.

Also, it may have a blue cap on it from the factory.

Also, it may be on the receiver/accumulator which looks like a big can of soup.

Good luck on this one.

Where is the low pressure line AC for Express 1500

Look for the accumulator(silver can a/c lines go to) on the passenger side of engine area. The Low side charging port cap should be on the side of the accumulator.

You have to take off the Front Grill pop the plastic holders on top then pull very hard. It will come off. let me know if that fixes it i went to recharge mine and it was completely full. They said i had a clogged condenser.
