The charging port is located in the receiver drier, (it will have a plastic cap on it) it is also know as an Accumulator, it is a can shaped object on the passenger side rear of engine compartment, the low pressure AC hose goes to this can, the low pressure hose is the one that is the larger of the two hoses from the AC compressor, I will attach a picture of the reciever/drier, if it doesn't show up just remember it is about the size of a one pound coffee can with a large hose from the AC compressor going to it.

Diagram of low pressure port valve on 1996 ford ranger air compressor


If you don't know the difference between "coolant" and "refrigerant", you probably should not be fooling around with the A/C, it can be dangerous. And yes, words do make a difference. That is how we communicate. The best thing you can do if you want to work on vehicles, is get some books and educate yourself. The low side port is going to be somewhere between the compressor low side (the larger line) and the accumulator/dryer. Find the line and follow it. It can't be too hard to find as it is a general service port.

Ford Ranger a/c blowing hot air


You have the right port if it fits the RECHARGE hose. If it's reading 130 psi, it might be way overcharged.
Did you follow directions and did the AC compressor clutch kick in? At that pressure,on the low side,the compressor shouldn't even engage.
To discharge the system if overcharged,you need for a shop to do it. don-ohio (:^)

How to recharge recharge airconditioner


Hi, determine if your car uses R134 or R12 refrigerant. You will notice screw type connectors on the both the High Pressure Side and Low Pressure Side lines in models using R12 refrigerant. R134 compatible models have quick connect valves on both sides. Models made before 1995 may use the old R12 refrigerant. If this is the case, you must have your Chrysler's air conditioning system retrofitted to use R134 refrigerant. Mixing R12 and R134 refrigerants is dangerous and may cause damage to your vehicle. Check your air conditioning system pressure using an automotive air conditioning pressure gauge. Keep in mind that in order to get an accurate reading, the air conditioner has be turned on the coldest setting with maximum blowing power. Remove the Low Pressure Side port valve cap and set it aside. The location of the port varies, but it is usually in front of the engine block. Attach the refill hose to the port on the Low Pressure Side of the air conditioning system. The Low Pressure Side port is smaller the High Pressure Side port. Because the ports are different sizes, the refill kit hose should fit only on the Low Pressure Side port. Additionally, the High Pressure Side port will usually have a red cap or be marked with an H or the word High Allow the air conditioner to **** the refrigerant out of the can by slowly turning the valve on the refill kit hose. Pay attention to the way you hold the can. Most kits will have you hold the can upright when you recharge the air conditioning system. It may take as long as 10 minutes to empty a single can. Turn the valve to the off position and remove the refill hose from the port. Recap the port before closing the hood. Let the air conditioner stay on for at least 30 minutes. This allows the refrigerant to move throughout the entire system.
Take care

1996 ford ranger ac compressor keeps kicking on and off. I'll have cool air for about 3 seconds then compressor kicks off. then on, then off. help


It's just low on freon, low pressure switch will cut a/c compr off and on, so it won't get damage a/c compr. due to low on freon, recharge it you'll be fine.

Low side on ranger for the port on the ac


hmm ..if you are looking for the low side air conditioner port .. then locate the condenser (thats in front of and looks like the radiator) .. you will notice two tubes going to that ..one is large the other small .. the small tube is the high pressure side .. the large tube is the low pressure side ... follow the large tube back until you find a cap that covers the low pressure port .. thats where you would fill with new refregerant (r134a) .. if you buy r134a, you can also get a filler hose and gage.. that hose will only hook up to the low pressure port ..it wont fit the high pressure port ...
