It is the port on the metal tubing that will fit the end of the fill hose from the Freon... it is the only one that will fit. The high pressure side is different so you don't jack it up.

Plain site... gray or black cap...screw tools needed.

A/c port to put coolant in?

The "low pressure" port. It's the only place the connector on the recharge kit will fit. There will be two ports under your hood, "high" side and "low" side. They have different connectors so you can't get them on wrong.

Diagram of low pressure port valve on 1996 ford ranger air compressor

If you don't know the difference between "coolant" and "refrigerant", you probably should not be fooling around with the A/C, it can be dangerous. And yes, words do make a difference. That is how we communicate. The best thing you can do if you want to work on vehicles, is get some books and educate yourself. The low side port is going to be somewhere between the compressor low side (the larger line) and the accumulator/dryer. Find the line and follow it. It can't be too hard to find as it is a general service port.

My 2009 Dodge Ram 1500's AC is not blowing cold

Most likely your system just needs to be charged with r134a coolant. You can do it yourself. Just head down to the local auto parts store and buy a can of coolant that comes with a hose and gauge attached and then locate you low pressure port on you system. It is typically located on the passenger side between the radiator and the firewall on a silver tube. Don't worry you can't make a mistake as the coupler will only fit the low pressure side. When you locate it remove the cap and hook up gauge and can. Start the car and turn the AC to mac cold and highest fan speed. Then open the gauge depending on ambient temperature out side your gauge should read between 35-45 psi. The gauge should also be color coordinated as long as you don't fill until the gauge is in the red. Your good. Then close the gauge, remove it from the low pressure port and replace the cap on the port. (When the coolant is flowing into your system the can should turn quite cold and maybe even have some frost on it. No worries that is normal).

I need to find low pressure port on 1999 Labaron LXI for recharging ac coolant

Without A/C system theory & some training,
I would say no. Leave it to a mechanic with
the correct equipment

You can not just add very well with those wal mart
a/c kits

You have no way of knowing how much to add, without
a manifold gauge set attached to vehicle

If you need to add, you have a leak that needs to be
repaired & your poluting the atmosphere until the repair
is completed

Which service port do I use to add coolant to the air conditioning, the one located at the rear of the engine compartment by the fire wall or the one up front by the radiator?

The low pressure port for recharging is usually the one near the firewall. That line will also go to a cannister and then into the firewall to the evaporator core. The one by the radiator is usually the high pressure side. Your connector will only fit the low pressure (correct) port for filling, as the 2 ports are different sizes.

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.

What two coolant lines connect to the throttle body on a 3.1 multi port engine

There are no coolant lines connected to the throttle body, just the two fuel line. The high pressure side and low pressure side (Return line) and I believe the lines don't even connect to the throttle body on a multi port engine, the lines go to the fuel rails to the injectors.
Good luck

Need to charge a/c cant find port

Keep following the refridgerant lines until you find the low pressure connector. Sometimes it is tucked away in a difficult place behind the engine near the firewall. Make sure you've found the low pressure connection. DO NOT try to force refridgerant into the high pressure connection.
