Question about 1996 Toyota Camry
Need to know how to recharge the air conditioner on my 1996 Camry.
Please be as specific as possible.
I just did this for my 1994 Camry. Does your camry use the R-134A modern refrigerant? Probably.
Go to an auto parts store and buy a can of R-134A with a pressure guage included. You'll need that guage so you don't overfill the system. I bought one that allows me to save the guage and buy cheaper refills int he future.
There are two AC valves. A small one, located in the left-rear of the engine compartment, behind the strut tower, just in front of where the passenger seat is located. It might have a cap on it marked "L". This is the "Low" port, and is the one you want. The larger "H" port is up near the battery, is bigger, and is the "high" port. You don't want to use that one, and besides, it won't fit the can anyway.
Locate that low valve in the left-rear of the compartment. Take the cap off (if one is still on there). Start the engine and get it up to running temp. Turn on your AC to maximum cool, fan at maximum. Follow the directions on the can. It's pretty simple.
You'll pull back on the bushing on the refill line, and then snap it onto the valve just like you'd find on an air hose. Snap it into place, and then start refilling. Make sure the can is upside down and that you rotate and shake the can to get the coolant out effectively.
