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.

Air conditioner not working


If you are still getting air from the vents but it is not cold then you either have a bad compressor or just need to recharge it.

With the engine on in idle, turn on the AC and watch the RPMs. They should drop about 50-100 when you turn it on, also listen for the sound of the compressor kicking in. If you notice either of these things then the compressor is probably fine and the AC just needs to be recharged.

Head to your local auto parts store and pick up a recharge kit. The kit will have pretty good instructions on how to recharge it. If you are having difficulties following them just let me know.

Low side port for air conditioner


If you are recharging the air conditioner - start at the A/C pump, and follow the lines up until you find a black round stub (this unscrews) and this is where you will re-fill (recharge) the A/C.

NOTE: It is recommended to have a professional (certified) mechanic recharge A/C systems, but is not necessary. (laws and regulations vary per state, city, county).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Air conditioner not blowing cold air


go to a parts store such as Advance Auto Parts or Auto Zone and buy the A/C recharging kit they have with the rubber line and connector that connects only on the side that you need to recharge your system. If you can put air in your tires you can out freon in your a/c system.

How do i recharge the air conditioner on a 1996 chevy subrban 5.7 engine


Just get an air conditioner recharge kit from Walmart or most parts stores, and hook the filler tube to the low side connector. It will have a blue cap. You can't get it wrong because it won't fit on the other one. Start your engine, turn on the AC and keep adding until it won't take any more. Usually 2 to 3 cans if it's right empty.

Air conditioner blows cool air but it does not blow cold air.


Start by recharging your system. If you want to do it yourself. Most auto parts stores and hardware stores have recharge kits. Purchase a kit with a gauge to prevent overfilling.
