The low pressure valve is down by the AC Compressor. It is part of the aluminum manifold that connects directly to the AC compressor. It is accessible from above, but easier to reach from under the car.

By the way, is there any particular reason why you want to recharge your AC system? If it isn't working, adding refrigerant will not necessarily fix the problem. If the refrigerant has all leaked out, you probably need to evacuate the system first.

Where is the Low pressure air conditioner recharge valve? For a 2000 Pontiac Grand AM V6


Hi, raise the hood , locate the two lines or hoses or whatever you want to call them from the A/C compressor, which is located at the front of the engine, being one of the components with the drive belt going around it, one of the lines is larger than the other, THAT is the Low pressure (or suction side) line, and somewhere along that line there is a small cap that has to be removed to access the recharge valve, the lines come from the compressor up and through the firewall, usually on the right side of the car, when recharging have engine running, A/C on, that line should get cold when working, and for your safety eye protection and gloves.

I have a code p1762 for my 97 jeep grand cherokee


Trouble code P1762 means: Governor pressure sensor offset improper voltage. Gov. Pressure Sensor.It is located in the valve body of the transmission and requires dropping the transmission pan to replace. Sounds much more difficult than it is. Since you have to change your fluid it's a good idea to change the trans. filter .

Where is the low pressure valve for the recharging the air conditioner on a 97 Olds Bravada?


it is located between the compressor and the accumulator. the quick disconnect valve is smaller than the high pressure valve so you can't make a mistake using the single recharging hose.

2004 Lincoln LS A/C Valve


In order to charge, you must locate the low pressure valve to install the refrigerant. The low pressure valve is between the compressor and the evaporator. Do not charge on the High Pressure side, The high pressure valve is between the compressor and the condenser. To locate the low pressure valve, follow the line that comes from the compressor and routes toward the firewall. The valve will be somewhere on that line. Do not overcharge. The amount of pressure that is needed on the low pressure side will depend on the ambient outside temperature.
