Where is the low pressure AC port. I am trying to find it so that I can charge the AC system.


the receiver / dryer on your car is located in the right front bumper. you have to look up from underneath. you will see an aluminum cylinder (the drier). the valve is on the very top of this unit, not very visible, you have to reach up and feel it. it is not very conveniently located, but that is where it is. also note that there is probably a plastic cap on the valve that will need to be removed before servicing. good luck!

2002 ford expedition air conditioner needs R 134 refrigerant. I cant seem to locate the service port.


The low pressure valve on the 02 expedition is located on the accumulator on the passenger side fire wall. The accumulator is underneath the battery relay and a grouping of wires. Had to squeeze hand underneath a heater2_bing.gif hose and an a/c line to remove cap and hook up hose. Nothing has to be removed to locate the valve just a little touchy feely. Valve faces a 45 forward toward the engine.

Low Pressure Valve 97 Grand Am


The low pressure valve is down by the AC Compressor. It is part of the aluminum manifold that connects directly to the AC compressor. It is accessible from above, but easier to reach from under the car.

By the way, is there any particular reason why you want to recharge your AC system? If it isn't working, adding refrigerant will not necessarily fix the problem. If the refrigerant has all leaked out, you probably need to evacuate the system first.

2004 Lincoln LS A/C Valve


In order to charge, you must locate the low pressure valve to install the refrigerant. The low pressure valve is between the compressor and the evaporator. Do not charge on the High Pressure side, The high pressure valve is between the compressor and the condenser. To locate the low pressure valve, follow the line that comes from the compressor and routes toward the firewall. The valve will be somewhere on that line. Do not overcharge. The amount of pressure that is needed on the low pressure side will depend on the ambient outside temperature.

AC has stopped blowing cold air. Compressor is working. Where is the recharge valve located?


There are two A/C refrigerant lines. The small line is your high pressure line and the larger line is your low pressure line.
Start at the fire wall and follow the "large " low pressure line to the compressor. The low pressure charge port will be some where on that line.
DO NOT try to recharge on the high pressure side ( small line )
Good luck, let me know.
