It's called the "low pressure refrigerant line".

How and where to add freon to a1995 sedan deville


Verify ambient temperature is above 65 degrees F.

1. Safety> - safety glasses, long sleeves and gloves, (exposure to refrigerant can cause frostbite).

2. Attach hoses to manifold> assembly, (hi, lo, and fill).

3. Remove caps from service ports, (Low press. Larger tube from evaporator to accumulator - passenger side over fender well; High Pressure - smaller tube from evaporator along firewall towards driver's side). Verify service> ports are clean.

4. Attach low press. and high press hoses to proper service ports.

5. Start car>, reset low refrig code, and turn ac on high and fan on high.

6. Read gauges and compare with chart provided with gauge set.

7. If low and high press readings are both low, then system needs recharge.

8. To recharge, attach fill hose to can of R134a and slowly open low press valve>, (NOT HIGH PRESS VALVE), until low press side reads 40 psi.

9. When flow stops and pressures stabilize close valves> and disconnect manifold from service ports and refrigerant can. Replace service port caps.

You have the right port if it fits the RECHARGE hose. If it's reading 130 psi, it might be way overcharged.
Did you follow directions and did the AC compressor clutch kick in? At that pressure,on the low side,the compressor shouldn't even engage.
To discharge the system if overcharged,you need for a shop to do it. don-ohio (:^)

I want to know where is the location of an ac low service port?


HI!!
Find the compressor and follow the thicker line/hose coming from it. On an A/C System, the Fat Line is the Suction or Low Pressure Line and the Skinny Line is the Hi Pressure Line. The Low Pressure Service port is usually located by the passenger side fender well next or on top of the filter/receiver/dryer (a metal cylinder device). The Low and Hi pressure service ports are different so there is no way you can hook up wrong the charging hose.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Want to add refrigerant. air conditioner not very cool. which is low pressure port for adding r134a coolant?


The newer cars have 2 ports. The large port which is the high side and small port, low side. The kit you buy to refill the air cond will fit only one of the ports and that's the small port. You don't want to hook up on the high side so, this is why ports are sized and the gauge will only fit one. The low side should be near the evaporator or on the evaporator.

Low side on ranger for the port on the ac


hmm ..if you are looking for the low side air conditioner port .. then locate the condenser (thats in front of and looks like the radiator) .. you will notice two tubes going to that ..one is large the other small .. the small tube is the high pressure side .. the large tube is the low pressure side ... follow the large tube back until you find a cap that covers the low pressure port .. thats where you would fill with new refregerant (r134a) .. if you buy r134a, you can also get a filler hose and gage.. that hose will only hook up to the low pressure port ..it wont fit the high pressure port ...

R134a recharger nozzle won't fit on low pressure service port.


The low pressure port on the 2003 grand am is actually behind the engine, near the firewall on the passenger side. Good luck getting your hose down there though, I ended up buying an extension hose.

Low side port on a chevy camaro. Do i need to get under the car to find it? cant seem to find it when looking over the evaporator


The service port for recharge is on the accumulator. It looks like an silver canister that the low pressure hose runs to from the compressor and the evaporator. Good luck and hope this helps.

2000 ford taurus low end ac valve


please rate as fixed if this helps you.

The low pressure service gauge port valve is located on the evaporator to accumulator/drier suction line.


The evaporator to accumulator/drier suction line contains low pressure refrigerant gas and is equipped with a serviceable low pressure A/C charge valve port.

I dont know where to add freeon to my 1999 kia sportage 4x4


Find the A/C compressor. Look a both lines going to it. One line should be bigger than the other. The bigger line is the Low Side (suction port) follow that line it goes to the firewall to the evaporator that is in your dash. The low side pressure port is somewhere in that line between the evaporator and the compressor. That port is where you check low side pressure and add freon. Don't worry if you buy a charging kit from a part store you can't hook it up wrong, the low side port and the high side port are different sizes and the hose won't fit. With the A/C running on high, low side pressure should be about 35psi.
