The low pressure line is the larger of the two lines and i believe the low pressure line has a blue cap on the valve, and the high pressure valve has the black cap on it. 
Follow the two lines from the compressor, the line that goes to the condenser (to the front of the truck) is the high pressure line. The other line that comes from the firewall is the low side and will have the refill port with a blue cap on it.
Good luck and hope this help. There should also be a sticker somewhere in the engine bay to the amount of R134 should be in the system.

Ford focus se how to repair


invest in a can with a gague of 134A at auto zone it will have the filler hose on it. Attach it to your low pressure side line .it will only fit on the low pressure side. (if you cant find low pressure line on car google (where is low pressure line for AC Ford focus) check your gauge if low on R134A add some from can .If all is ok check ac fuse. if nothing works after makeing sure system is full of 134A check if your compressor is working. usually it just needs to be recharged.

Where do I add freon to my '96 lumina?


You will add R134a refrigerant to the low pressure side. There willl be to schrader valves, one for the high, and low pressure sides. You can only charge the low side. To locate the inlet, you will follow the lines off of the a/c if you are not sure where they are, it will have a cap over the schrader valve that reads L, that is the one that you charge.

A/C DOESNT TURN ON WHEN BUTTON SWITCH IS PUSHED


Most likely low on R134A. System needs to be recharged and checked for leaks. You can buy R134A with leak stop to put in the system from most parts stores. If the pressure in the system is not high enough the pump will not engage.

Why wont the a/c clutch kick on on my 1998 dodge caravan 3.3 litre?


The r134a pressure may be low in the refrigerant lines causing the compressor to not engage as a safety measure for the compressor.

Poor a/c performance, not cold enough and right side seems almost warm (hemi V-8)


If the a/c works but not as well as you like, then it's likely that the charge of r134a is low due to a slow leak.

Get an r134a recharge kit with 1 can included to see if bumping up the pressure of r134a solves your problem.

Also, sometimes there are zoned left and right a/c and heater controls that can be set so that the passenger side (right side) is warmer or colder than the driver's side (left side).

Try the above and I wish you luck on this repair.

Where is the low pressure port to fill ac


The low pressure port should be on the Accumulator, that's the silver cylinder that has the low side A/C line going in to it. You'll see the valve on the cylinder for you to add the R134a, do not aver fill the system. Safest way is to open and close the refill valve and let the A/C run for 2 min and see who cold the system is getting adding little at a time. To much R134a in the system will also give you poor A/C performance, to high of pressure in the system will shut down the compressor also.
Thank you for using fixya and when you think the air coming out of the vent is cold enough, stop charging the system.

How do I charge A/C on my 97 dodge dakota


Hey Steffney..my name is Keith...to charge ya A/C on ya Dodge Dakota..you need to determine how low your R134a is...after that..you go to the autoparts store and buy the size can of R134A that you will need..some of the cans of R134A will have a servicing connector with it..some wont...so...when ya get that figured out...you start your truck and turn the A/C on maximum cool...and ya blower to high blow...then ya find ya low pressure side servicing port(its usually located on the right side under the hood..and it looks like an oversized tire inflation valve..but made out of aluminum) and you connect the can of R134A to it and follow the direction on the can of R134A....i hope this will help ya.

COOLANT CHARGING


things you need(to do it properly) vacuum pump,r134a gauges and leak detection of some sort first locate lowside port connect blue connector from gauge to it (lowside is the skinny hose)connect vacuum pump to yellow line open valve on blue guage manifold.
pull a vacuum to less than 30" hg for thirty minutes.close bluevalve on manifold watch needle make sure pressure doen't rise if no change in pressure after 15 minutes no leak.if pressure does rise then you have a leak and need to find it.(cheap/messy way use get a can of 134 with dye in it fill system and let it run look for dye on system usually on pump around back of clutch,unless you replaced a compnent recently then check all fittings and seals.)
you will add r134a through the yellow hose.

1997 Dodge Ram 1500 ( transmission )


I also have a 97 Ram that did the same thing. First thing to do is add a trans cooler and remove the rubber lines at the radiator. If you feel the truck takes off in 2nd gear you need to replace the transducer and governor pressure switch inside the trans pan on the pass side of the valve body.
