I had a person that thought that he knew what he was doing hook up to the one under the air filter, and if that is what could be the high side, and now the car is not cooling at all, could this hurt the system?

If you follow the ac lines from the condenser(in front of the radiator) you will find two small threaded nipples, one on each hose. They should each be labeled, but you need to hook up a recharge kit to the low pressure side. Don't mess with the high pressure side. (usually they are on the passenger side of the engine bay, somewhere close to the firewall, or around the air filter.) just be aware, the freon you can buy at an auto parts store, will never compare to what a garage gets. There is a big difference in the chemical they use over what you can buy.
It is either under the filter box,where the air cleaner goes,or next to the firewall next to the passengers side fender,look at the ac lines coming from the ac compressor,and follow them,look at the large ac line coming from the ac compressor,to the firewall,it will be on that line,and your single charge hose,will only fit the low side service port,so you can not hook up to the wrong one,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.
i belive on this year car and make its located under the air filter box, remove the intake hose then the cover for the air filter, remove the filter then remove the lower part of the air box there you will see the filter dryer and the lines coming off the dryer and there will be two fittings to charge the ac system, the smaller fitting is the low side this is the side to charge through, make sure not to overcharge the system and add oil as needed, a good idea is to add dye to the system to help in finding the leak if system goes low again, theres a decal under the hood or on the dryer that tells you how much freon the system can hold. if you under or overcharge the system the air may be cold but future ac damage is for sure, good luck.
The air conditioning filter that your manual speaks of is known as a ''cabin filter'', it is much differant then your engine air filter. It filters the incoming air into your vehicles interior. So if someone has told you to replace your ''air filter'' they are more then likely speaking of your ''engine'' air fitler. You should check your engine air filter every oil change. If it shows signs of dirt, then replace it. Hope this helps =)
theres probably a leak in your AC coil, get it recharged or if you want tell them the problem and they will probably put the coil under pressure with some leak dye in it and theyll use a black light to find the leak if there is one, most AC leaks take a whole summer to leak out completely so if your broke you could just get it recharged every summer, but if your a do-it-right person then get it fixed!
