Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra
You need to locate the low port on the AC.
You recharge the AC connecting to the low port.
You find the AC low pressure at the top of the compressor. Near the compressor you find two ports, the high port and low port.
You can follow the compressor line to reach the port.
To find out which one is the low port, run the air conditioner for a couple of minutes withthe engine on.
Then turn off the care and touch the lines from compressor to the two ports , often covered with plastic caps. Only one of the pipes will be cold, the line that is cold will lead you to the low port.

You never add coolant to the ac system.
you add freon to the ac system
on that car it is a 134a system and you will have to go get the refill kit not the conversion kit.from an auto parts house.
it will have a fill hose with gauge and freon.
take off the blue cap on the ac hose and hookup the adaptor fill hose.it has a collar that you have to hold up wil you push the fitting on then let the collar go with pressure still on the connection to lock it on.fill the system untill it begins to cool and or the compressor stops cycling on and off.then stop filling and remove the fill hose by pulling up on the collar and it will just pop off dont get scard cause it will just pop off a little bit and thats it.you should be ok with this and the cost should be under 35 dollars.
hope this helps
