Question about 2005 Kia Spectra
Here is an image of the low side port I found on my 2007 Kia Spectr5. It was towards the back left when standing in front of the car with hood up. The cap had an L embossed on it. My car was blowing neutral air not cold or hot and the clutch kicked on only when the car would start. I took it to a shop for a basic pressure test and they said it was low put the system looked fine. I just bought a can of subzero and did it myself and now I freeze. The pressure was actually empty when I used the gauge and it took an 18 oz can to get me up but was still not enough to reach the recommended zone on the gauge but I figured why push it if it's blowing so cold. The can of subzero I bought had the gauge attached to it so I kept the gauge and can easily check it at any time for a basic reading. That and when it comes time to charge it again I can grab a small 12 oz can with no gauge for a much lower price and use the gauge with it. I searched every where online but had no luck finding good info or images on where to find the port, So I decided to post this retrospect for others that find this query.

1995 should have 134A. Look on the compressor and in the middle of it will be a sticker that says 134a or r12. If it is r12, you must retrofit it in order to charge it yourself.

You have a large diameter suction pipe 1/2" and a small pressure pipe 3/8" coming from your a/c compressor, follow the larger pipe until you come to a plastic cap sitting on the line, take off cap to see filler valve. Looks like a large tire valve.

The red cap is for high pressure and yelow is for the low pressure. If you have the older systemm, then you will have a tire gauge looking valve that you can use to fill the system.
