At the low side line from the ac compressor, the low side is the larger of the two ac lines from the compressor, some models also have a charging port at the can shaped part the low side line goes to, this is called the accumulator.

How to add freon to a 2009 dodge journey

You need 22oz for a "front only" a/c system and 32oz of R-134a refrigerant for "front and rear" a/c system.

The compressor is off likely due to insufficient refrigerant charge in the system. Once the minimum required charge has be provided, the compressor clutch should engage (check for blown fuse if it does not). Refrigerant is added only to the low or suction side of the compressor and only as a gas. Do not invert the refrigerant tank in an attempt to add refrigerant as a liquid! Placing the tank in warm water is a better way to fill the system (raises the pressure in the tank) without concern for slugging the compressor.

How much freon do i put in

should A/C professional address this issue, it's not for your do it yourself project or repair. if u are having to add refrigerant to your car's A/C system, trying to find a leak can be very difficult. Every car has a specific amount of refrigerant, so you can get the most out of your cooling system. Example 26.48 oz. is the exact amount of refrigerant for 1990 geo storm. If you randomly add 1 16oz can of refrigerant, thinking this will make cooling system super cold! Wrong adding too much refrigerant works the same as your original problem System low or empty of refrigerant. This is best done by the PROS.
Hope my answer works for you,

Where do you add refrigerent

Refrigerant is part of the A/C system. You should have special guages to add it to the system to prevent overcharging. There are do it yourself cans available at many stores but it is highly recommended that it be done professionally. If your system needs refrigerant added to it then there is a leak somewhere in the system.

I have a 98 mazda 626, the coolant is low, I'm confused as to where the low pressure gauge is located on the engine and do not have an owners manual, help I'm buning up

Are you talking about coolant or refrigerant? There is no low pressure gauge on the engine. I am going to assume you are referring to the A/C refrigerant as you say you are burning up. I am also going to assume you are wanting to know where the low pressure inlet valve is so you can add refrigerant to the system. You have a leak or you would not need to add refrigerant. Know that it is illegal to add refrigerant R134 to any system with a leak until you have the leak repaired. You also must add the correct amount to the system. This requires repairing the leak and then having the proper gauges to determine when you have added the correct amount of refrigerant. My advice, and the only advice I can legally give you, is to take your vehicle to a professional and have the leak repaired and the system charged.

2003 hyundai sante fe leaking refrigerant. Where do I start

Get a leak detection kit from your local auto parts store. It's basically regular refrigerant with a dye added to aid in leak detection. When adding the leak detector, turn the truck on and the AC on HIGH. Add the leak detector and look for purple spots along the AC lines and compressor. Once found, you can make the repair but will have to completely evacuate the system prior to recharging with refrigerant. If no leak can be found, add refrigerant a 1lb can at a time until you get cold air from the vents.

The computer on my 1988 Reatta states that I have low refrigerant. How would I know if the a/c system has been converted for 134a refrigerant? Can I add the refrigerant myself? Thanks

If it has been changed there SHOULD be a sticker placed under the hood somewhere saying that it has. If it has you can add it yourself easily, if not you can have it converted. You can get a kit at your local auto parts store

A.c. not blowing cold

First off you 2006 vehicle contains no Freon R12. It contains R134 refrigerant. You have a leak or you would not need to add refrigerant. It is illegal to add refrigerant without repairing the leak. Take it to a trusted A/C specialist and have the leak repaired. They have the proper tools and expertise to add the correct amount and repair the leak.
