Question about 2004 Ford Focus

5 Answers

I have a 2004 ford focus, and i need to add freon. But, the owners manual doesn't say where to add it. I even looked, and there isnt anything obvious under the hood like the blue cap on my cavalier. Can anyone help?

    Well, i have no clue as to where the valve is, that is the problem. I have a pressure gauge, but i do not know where the valve is

    the reasoning for this is that the A/C is not cold like it should be

    FOLLOW THE LARGE AC LINE, IT SHOULD BE THERE, IF NOT LOOK AT THE ACCUMULATOR NEAR REAR OF THE ENGINE. I AM A FORD DEALER TECH BUT HAVE NEVER SERVICED THE AC SERVICE PORT WAS ALWAYAS ANOTHER PROBLEM.

    CHECK THE SYSTEM LOW SIDE PRESSURE BEFORE YOU ADD ANY R134A TO THE SYSTEM, LACK OF COOLING IN THIS CAR IS OFTEN NOT A LOW CHARGE BUT A DEFECTIVE BLEND DOOR

This is really a fix for a shop, but what you are looking for is a fitting that looks like the air valve on a tire... but be careful, there is also a similar fitting on your fuel rail. The fitting you are looking for should be on the A/C line near your condenser (looks like another radiator) or near the dryer (which looks like a tall can).

It in the passenger side wheel wel. Take the plastic off thats infron of your front passenger tire and you'll see that ac refill. Very simple. 1, maybe 2 screw/bolts, then 2 plastic "mumch screws" not sure there name but u pop the center out first and then pull out the whole plastic "screw thing". Hope this helps

Stan and Justin are both correct, the low side port, which is the one you want if you're just going to add some freon, is located in front of the passenger front wheel well and although not the most convenient location is still easily accessible. However, if you are low on Freon then you must have a leak. It is probably best that you get it to a licensed repair shop and have it checked otherwise you'll just have to keep adding Freon.

I would check the blue doohickey that is right next to the kabonkulater (its the one with the blue cap that says pour freon here). It is located right above your blinker fluid bottle towards the windshield. I had this same problem in my latest F430 and after checking that it wasnt my issue so i refilled my coolant and that defiantly made a significant difference in the temp of my A/C. Also be sure to get out your battery charger because it will need to be recharged as well. I wish you the best of luck with your Focus i have always admired Ford's ability to create quality vehicles. Evacuate the A/C system for at least thirty (30) minutes to a vacuum of 29 in. Your R134 system does have faults but you can sure fix them. What happened to the good old days of r12 and freon.

Does your fuse box cover tell you which fuse does what? Also, check your owners manual.

If you don't have an owners manual,
fleet.ford.com has owners manuals.

I need a diagram on how to put freon in a 2006 ford focus


The answer is simple. DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER.
You must be a federally or state licensed a/c person to add freon to any a/c unit. Even the qualified people can not put fluid in unless they can sign off the the unit does not leak. SORRY

Where do i put freon in on a 2005 focus


Your focus should not take freon. Freon is used in older cars from 1995 on back. Your focus should take R134 and the plug for your AC should be located under the passenger side wheel well (yes ford makes things so convenient). Just unscrew the little plastic crews in you wheel well and attach the gauge and can of R134 (should take a little more than 2 large cans).
