Before you try putting the refridge. in check up under your hood for a sticker to make sure you have the correct fluid cause the canesters for the different ones have 2 totally different connections, I think on them is should be located on the passanger side towards the lower part of the engine , almost at the bottom of the engine.. take a close look, after you find out if the refridge. you bought is the right one, and if it is just look around till you see that connection... hope this helps.... have a great day

I'm not 100% certain it's the case on a 1995, but on a 1996 with the 3100 motor, the low-side charge port is down between the radiator and the motor just a bit off center toward the passenger side of the car. On the 96, the cap on the high-side has a large letter H on it and the low-side has a letter L. Not the brightest since the caps can be accidentally switched if you don't know what you are doing. IF you DO decide to charge the A/C on your own (which isn't recommened), at LEAST purchase the recharge hose with the pressure gauge on it. Overcharging can turn an under-performing air conditioner to one that no longer works and sometimes more costly to repair than the value of the car in a matter of just a few seconds of overcharging. Trust me, I know

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee shuts off when put in gear


Hi there:
First I suggest remove the air intake hose to the engine and clean the throttle body bore out real good with some carb spray. If it still acts up, replace the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. Also, keep in mind check the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor, they were very common to fail.


Additrionally, need to go on a diagnostic machine and a scan tool to see how all the sensors are working. Check and test for discard some vacuum leak.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

2002 Pontiac grand am air conditioner not blowing cold air


Sounds like your refrigerant is low/out. There is a product you can buy at your local wal-mart/auto store called EZ Chill Auto Air Conditioning Refrigerant. I've used this item personally in my own vehicals and it works awsome. One bottle comes with everything you need including detailed instructions and is super easy to put in. Costs anywhere from $25-35. Well worth it...hope this helps.

Why does my 1995 z71 turn off when I put it in drive an reverse?


More than likely the automatic idle speed control valve is dirty along with the throttle valve, clean them as outlined below.

To correct this problem Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.

Call stalls after warming up


do the follwing to clean the automatic idle speed control valve, it is the source of the stall.

get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Where do you recharge the airconditioning unit on a 98 jeep grand cherokee 4x4 loredo? Need the location of the fill valve. I already have the recharging kit.


Jeep GrandCherokee SUVs manufactured in or before 1995 use R12 refrigerant. You must retrofit these SUVs to accept R134 refrigerant using a retrofit kit available at your local auto parts store before you can recharge the system. In some areas, a license is required to retrofit an air conditioning system. If this is the case in your area, take your Jeep to a professional to retrofit the system.

Instructions:
  1. Step 1 Take your SUV to a mechanic to recover the R12 refrigerant out of the air conditioning system. A license and special equipment are needed to do this. Because R12 refrigerant is expensive, many mechanics will do the job for free.
  2. Step 2 Locate the Low Pressure Side connector port. You will find it on the driver's side of the engine. Remove the blue or yellow cap marked L. You only need to retrofit the system if you see a screw-type connector valve. If you see a quick connect valve, the system already is R134 compatible. Wipe the connector valve off with a clean towel. This ensures that the retrofit connector properly adheres to the valve.
  3. Step 3 Place the long retrofit connector from the automotive retrofit kit onto the Low Pressure Side valve. The retrofit connector has a special adhesive on the threads that will help it adhere to the valve. Screw the connector onto the valve. Tighten the retrofit connector using an adjustable wrench. Place the cap provided in the retrofit kit onto the retrofit connector. This keeps dust out of the system.
  4. Step 4 Follow the air conditioning lines away from the compressor until you see the High Pressure Side port valve. This is located near the Low Pressure Side service port. Remove the red cap and wipe the port off with a towel.
  5. Step 5 Put the shorter adapter onto the port. Twist it using an adjustable wrench until it is securely fastened to the port. Place the red cap from the retrofit kit onto the adaptor.
  6. Step 6 Fill out the Retrofit Identification sticker provided in the retrofit kit using a permanent marker. Remove the protective backing and place it on the interior side of the hood. This lets future owners and service professionals know that the system has been retrofitted.
  7. Step 7 Recharge the air conditioning system. See the related eHow titled "How to Recharge Air Conditioning with Freon in a Jeep Grand Cherokee."
WARINING:
Never try to evacuate the system yourself. A license and special equipment is needed to evacuate the system. Attempting to do this yourself will release refrigerant into the air, which is a federal crime.

Good luck (rated this help).

On a 1995 pontiac grand am gt how do you get the a/c clutch to engage to put freon in


Someone else asked the same question, but different car- I guess they didn't believe me-
The answer is - it's the opposite process. You need to put the refrigerant in the system in order for the clutch and compressor to come on. The refrigerant comes in highly pressurized cans, and it will load into the system through the low side filler valve. Once there's sufficient pressure in the system, the compressor kicks on. At first it will cycle on and off fairly rapidly until the system is adequately pressurized. If the compressor were to run without refrigerant and lubricating oil, it would burn out. I suggest you purchase a gauge( similar to a tire gauge) that hooks up to the same valve that the filler hose hooks up to. It will give a reading of the system charge, so you don't under or over charge the system, and they're relatively inexpensive. They can be purchased in the auto parts store where you get the refrigerant and filler hose.

Hope this helps...

AC is not working


Sounds like the A/C system just needs to be recharged. When was the last time you had this done? Just take it in to your mechanic and he can do it for you and if that's not it for some reason, then he will be able to find the problem but most likely you need more freon added.

I have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 5.2l V8. It starts but doesn't idle. When put in gear it stalls out. I have replaced the fuel filter and put in and additive to clean the injectors and clean out...


TRY THIS PROCEDURE:
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
