Can of r134a hose won't stay on low pressure port

My husband bought a can of r134a to try and fix my air, we have followed directions and it will not attach to the low pressure port? We made sure it was the bigger of the two, near the battery. What are we doing wrong? Can you use r134a with a 1997 buick lesabre?

thank you so much for any help

Low side is the smaller of the two fitting wise, but usually the bigger hose.

My air condition work only when I hot wire the compressor clutch. Otherwise it not engaging when I turn on the ac.


You have to insert a can of R134A refrigerant and hose on the low pressure port.
Normally it is the fatter of the two hoses coming from the compre3ssor.It should then kick in with the A/C switch engaged.
If not you may have a bad fuse,switch,compressor,or relay.

I am trying to locate the port for ac refrigerant on a 2002 ford focus


To add refrigerant to your A/C system, remove front passenger side tire, remove plastic inner liner of whel well ( I only removed the torx bolt that holds it to the fender and folded it back) There is a silver canister there with a small tube with a black cap, that is the low side where the refrigerant goes. Get the hose attachment wit a gauge so you don't overfill, and a can of r134a, I used duPont Suva, and follow the directions on the hose attachment. Cost around $35USD total and about 45minutes and I now have cool air blowing.

Looking for the low port to recharge my air


A/C low side ports are located on the 'thicker' plumbing vs. the 'thinner' plumbing coming off of the compressor.

Just follow the low side pipes from the compressor to the first low side port. It should also fit a quick connector onthe hose/can combination for r134a. The high pressure side port will not work with the low side hose quick connector.

Hope this helps.

Equinox 2005, Air Conditioner blows hot air when car is idling then resumes cold air when car is moving. What could be causing this issue?


Most likely it needs to have the freon recharged. This is very common with R134A systems. You can do this yourself or have a shop do. Doing it yourself requires that you locate the Low pressure line, don't worry, the recharge can adapters will only fit the low pressure side, and to follow the directions on the can and watch the attached gauge. Over charging your AC is very bad and can cause very expensive damage. All the instructions you will need for using the recharge can will be printed on the can. Follow them. If you choose to do the job yourself you can get the recharge can with Hose and Gauge from Walmart, Auto Zone or just about any places you can get Oil, plugs and Oil Filters at.

Low side on ranger for the port on the ac


hmm ..if you are looking for the low side air conditioner port .. then locate the condenser (thats in front of and looks like the radiator) .. you will notice two tubes going to that ..one is large the other small .. the small tube is the high pressure side .. the large tube is the low pressure side ... follow the large tube back until you find a cap that covers the low pressure port .. thats where you would fill with new refregerant (r134a) .. if you buy r134a, you can also get a filler hose and gage.. that hose will only hook up to the low pressure port ..it wont fit the high pressure port ...

Ac problem


the refill bottle shouuld never be attached to the high pressure side (high side) .. the connections are different to prevent that .. if you did manage to hook that up, there would be great danger of the bottle exploding ... so you can only hook the bottle up to the low pressure side (large piple) ... the retrofit kit should have included adapters for both high and low pressure sides ... the correct adaptor should fit the R134a refill bottle hose ... it should also fit the low pressure port (you may have to remove the valve in the old port (read instructions for that) .. if the adapter does not fit then you might check with a dealer or air conditioner supply house for a special adapter ... R134a and R12 are completely incompatable so make sure you have washed out the system and replaced the dryer and sometimes the hoses ... you cant have any of the old lube left in the system .. its generally a good idea to replace all rubber parts for the changeover .. you will need to pull a vacuum for a couple of hours before refilling .. .

R134a recharger nozzle won't fit on low pressure service port.


The low pressure port on the 2003 grand am is actually behind the engine, near the firewall on the passenger side. Good luck getting your hose down there though, I ended up buying an extension hose.

AC Won't Work


probably low on freon R134A. Buy a can with a gauge on it. Addd to the low pressure port in engine compartment on passenger side, low pressure hose. If the compressor starts working, then you are low. Do not overfill or you will damage compressor. The gauge should have a "good" zone on it, stay in the god zone. If it starts cycling very fast, it is still low.
It should cycle 4 to 7 times/minute at 70 degrees F.

report back on progress.
Please rate as fixed if this helps.
