Re: 2000 Daewoo Luganza
The kit should come with instructions. I recommend taking it to a lisenced repair facility. You may have other issues than low low freon. Besides, the proper way to do it is to have a vacuum pulled on the system to remove any air. Any air in the system will prevent the ac from working at peak performence.

Out of freon. The only thing that you can do is locate the fill ports that look like valve stems for filling tires, take the cap off and depress the needle valve with something. If you get some pressure spraying out then you can buy a refill kit and add freon to it. If you dont get anything coming out when you do that, the whole system is empty and it means that you need to take it in and spend a lot of money to have it professionally redone.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. It sounds like you may need to add freon to the unit. Your A/C line should have a service port on it, looks like a bicycle tire valve, just bigger. The pipes are aluminum, so they are easy to pin point. You can buy the freon at Autozone, Advanced, or even Walmart. You may have a leak causing the freon to leak, but since it is 11 years old, it may just need filled.
seems like you lost your ac charge or you have a bad ac compressor or both. Can be repaired by you with a little ac knowledge 200-300 dollars. compressor dryer oil freon About 700-900 dollars in a shop.Good Luck!!!
Check to see if your AC compressor is turning, If it is then you need to refil system with freon equivalent thru the low pressure port. The kit you get will only let you put it on the low presure line. You can pick the lit up at any auto supply store. just folow the instructions on the kit. If the compressor clutch is not engaging check AC relay
R-134 coolant - not called Freon anymore - also pick up a recharge kit with a guage - do not over charge system! Try AutoZone or Advance - expect to pay around $25. Also, make your own leak test fluid from dish detergent and water. Put sdolution arounf all A/C fittings - you should not see any bubbles. If you do, then there's a leak and recharging the system will not last.
Sounds like the A/C system just needs to be recharged. When was the last time you had this done? Just take it in to your mechanic and he can do it for you and if that's not it for some reason, then he will be able to find the problem but most likely you need more freon added.
2000 maxima is filled with R134, not freon. You don't need retro fit kit. Get couple of cans of R134 and pump it into the low side valve /small fiting, while A/C compressor is engaged. If your compressor is not coming on, jump the low side pressure switch to make the compressor come on and than the R134 will get sucked in to your system through the low side line. The proper way to do this is to put a/c system under vaccum for 15 minutes at least and watch for leak/gauges coming/loosing vaccum. Than pump R134 into the HIGH side valve with engine OFF.
