WHERE IS THE LOW PRESSURE PORT FOR A 2001 FORD F150?
I Need to recharge my freon but cannot find the low pressure port. I have found the high pressure port. I also have a newer 2007 model f150 and easily found the low pressure port on it but cannot find on my 2001 f150. any help is appreciated

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 (:^)
U SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO RECHARGE, IF YOU DO U HAVE A LEAK AND THAT NEEDS TO BE REPAIRED 1ST BEFORE A RECHARGE, THE SERVICE RECHARGE PORT IS ON THE INSIDE OF THE OF THE PASSENGER FRONT FENDER, U MUST GET AT IT FROM UNDER THE CAR, IT IS ON THE ACCUMULATOR AND NOT VISIABLE, U MUST FELL IT, VERY HARD TO GET AT, GO TO LINK BELOW FOR PICTURE
I just did this on my f150 supercrew, which looks identical to my 2000 expedition. follow the freon lines, usually next to the battery, to the firewall. tucked against the firewall is the condensor and just above it is the low pressure access port. I topped off my freon using a kit with a pressure gauge. the before pressor was 40, and after the freon addition was 50. Made ALL the difference between a slightly cool AC and FREEZING COLD AC. Total cost with tax for the kit was just under $30. The kit inclued an 18 oz refill container (17 oz freon + 1 oz synthetic lubricant in the can) and reusable hose/pressure guage.
Unfortunately I am aware of no pictures or diagrams. There are two connections, a low pressure and a high pressure connection. The high pressure connection is found between the engine and the firewall. The low pressure connection is in front of the engine along the inside lip of the hood closure. As you open your hood, it's located just in front of your lefty knee. The connection is on an aluminum tubing, and mine has a black screw cap on it. Not sure if the cap varies in colors, or whether your may have been removed. The connecting hose from your freon refigerant H134a will ONLY fit onto the low pressure connection. The charge is just a bit more than 2 pounds of freon. In a 2001 you may need to add more than i can if the car has never been recharged, but start with one can and see how it goes. You may also want to add a freon with a sealant just in case you have a small leak. One can is approximately 13 ounces.
if it is a 134a system the port should be on the right side near the drierit should have a blue cap on it the high side should be near the front of vehicle near the condensor. the low side pressur should be 30-35 psi high side should be 130-150psi. do you have quick connects?---are the gauges for 134a it should say on the face of the guage.
