Look more at the size of the service port. the larger port should be in the high side line.

Where is the cap to recharge the ac for my 2008 chevy Malibu LTZ 6 cylinder

First pop the engine cover off. You are looking for a small cap with an "L" on it. This stands for Low Pressure. Most of the time they are blue. Avoid the "H" (High Pressure). The lines are typically silver in color.

When charging my a/c do i use the bigger line or the smaller line? 2008 malibu.

it can be charged in either or both depending on what you are using to charge it. if you have a small can from a part store, then you charge the low side.(it should only fit one port). if using a machine it can be done thru either or both.

Low pressure valve for 2008 ford explorer xlt

There should be two ports with black caps on the ac lines. One is bigger than the other to help prevent you from hooking up to the wrong side of the compressor.

Where is the low pressure port for the a/c on a 2003 GMC Envoy? Is it the black cap closer to the radiator?

Look at the lines (aluminum) and the size of the lines. The low pressure line is the bigger of the two where as the smaller line is the high pressure side. Normally the low pressure Schrader Valve is nearer the radiator just up from the canister dryer.

Where are the high and low pressure ports for the ac on a 1990 f150 sraight six

To find the ports, you will have to follow the high and low lines from the compressor, usually not far away, and indicated with red and blue caps on the scrader valves. The low pressure line is bigger in diameter than the high pressure line. You need to know which refrigerant is being used in this system as it could be the old R-12, which was banned. Could also be an R-12 system converted to R-134a with different high and low ports.

Low-pressure port I need identification

Basic AC system consists of Compressor pump (on engine), Condenser (front grill with radiator) and Evaporator (Firewall). Pump has two ports output (high pressure) and return (low pressure). Follow lines from pump. High side is usually between pump and condenser. Follow lines and find second port this will be low side (refill) port. Paint or replace port caps (red high, blue low). Also, refrigerant in system determines port size (R12 or R34).

Where do I recharge ac at

there are 2 ports one for low pressure and one for high pressure. the low pressure is bigger in diameter and is usually close to the dryer and or fender and firewall. the high pressure is near the condensor on the fron of the vehicle. if there are caps for the ports low will be blue and high will be red. low side pressure should be 35-50 psi and high pressure should be 135-150 psi

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.
