1997 Maxima low on freon

I have a 1997 nissan maxima and I do not get any cold/cool air out of the air conditioning so I believe I am low/empty on freon since the car has been sitting for a few months. My question is where is the low pressure valve that I connect the R34 can onto? I know the high is there to the left of the engine but where is the low hidden?

Be careful... the low side is the only one your can will work on but you need to open the hi pressure switch by arching switch connector w/ a paper clip in the 2 hole in the plug befor putting freon in if not it will read full when not.. open switch first then fill

Why would a 2006 Nissan Altima blowing hot air from the air conditioning system?


Look at the front of you A/C compressor with your A/C sent to max. the front of it should be moving with the rest of the pulley, if not you most likely have a leak and it's out of freon. If it's moving and still no cool are careful touch the pipes coming from the compressor, one is you hi side and the other low side. The smaller one (hi) should be warm or hot... the other (low) should be cold and sweating. If the clutch on the compressor is moving and those lines aren't hot and cold then your low on freon.

My air conditioning is not cold?


First thing would be to check and see if the freon charge is low.
You would need a special gauge to check it.

My a/c compressor works but blows low cool air instead of freezing cold. A mechanic said I need to vacuum the inside and add freon. Can I add freon my self?


Yes you can, go to any auto parts store. Putting vacuum on the system to empty is just to make sure any outside moisture didnt enter the system through whatever leak caused some of the freon to discharge.

My air conditioning dose not get cold enought


This means you need to add more freon, you can take it in to get added or just go to your nearest auto shop and buy some with a connector and just turn your car on with your air conditioner on high, and connect the line to your can then to the low side of the air conditioner lines and hold the can up right so you let the gasses in, not liquid. when can is empty remove from low side and be careful disconnecting from can because freon is very nasty stuff and may still have a little in the can. and repeat until necessary.

2002 Nissan Maxima SE - Air condition not blowing cold air


simply "adding a can"is a good way to end up with non-functional A/C. the typical system has high/low pressure switches that enable/disable the system. you need to be at the correct volume of refrigerant as specified on the sticker under the hood. i recommend using the proper equipment, evacuating, pulling a vacuum, and then refilling the system with the appropriate amount.

Would like to recharge my air conditioning on my 2001 nissian maxima that has 117,000 on it blows hot air when air conditioning is turned on.


You will need R134a, and a filler hose. Charge the system on the low pressure side, it should have a blue cap on the charge point.
Your filler hose will only fit the low pressure side, just in case the cap has been removed.

Air conditioner is not cooling


Are you sure the compressor is engaging? It normally wont engage if the line pressure is to low(meaning the system is out of freon.)
