Trying to recharge A/C system in 2003 Frontier CRew Cab. Do you have a diagram of system so I can locate high and low pressure lines.


To recharge A/C system in 2003 Frontier Crew Cab. Brother, don't concern yourself about the technical stuff of which is high or low pressure line. The refill/charge kit line will only fit on ONE of the 2 line fittings anyway. The line fittings I speak of are covered with a plastic cap like the one on your tire valve stem. Get your recharge kit from parts store, get mine from NAPA, with the line and a bottle of Freon. Find the charge fitting, usually on the passenger side under hood not far from firewall. Take the cap off and put it in your pocket. Open the kit, screw the piercing pin of the canister end out and put that end on the Freon canister. DON"T pierce the canister YET. Screw the other end on the charge fitting of your system and start the engine, turn on the AC on high, NOW pierce the canister top by screwing the knob/t-handle all the way in and then back it out half way. This will allow the Freon to escape the canister and the AC compressor will pull it into the system. Now, I've one trick for you. Before piercing the canister, get a small bucket of HOT water and have it there at the vehicle front. Soon as you pierce the canister and back the pin out half way, stick the canister into the hot water in the bucket. The heat will force ALL the Freon out of the canister till empty. Once empty, remove the kit line from the charge fitting on your vehicle, remove the canister from the kit line, trash the empty and hide the kit line where you can find it later, dump the water and put the bucket away, and go sit in the cool. One canister should take care of the recharge. If you put too much in from another full can, it may overcharge the system and still have no AC. That's just the nature of the beast. If it leaks down, get a leak detector kit from same place you got the recharge kit and find the leak. They also make a literal "Stop Leak" kit for AC systems too. Same place will have it. Brother, old school on this stuff. I figure things out quickly. There's no reason why this I told you won' work. It's what I do. Have fun Bro.

Recharge the air conditioner


Instructions
    • 1Start the recharging process with any left over freon you may still have. Open the Civic's hood and attach the kit to the Civic's low side port. Then, set the kit onto a place in the engine compartment where nothing can move or shift once the engine has been cranked.
    • 2Start the Civic and let the engine run until it reaches its normal operational temperature.

      • Single Pressure Gauges for Indl., Commercial & Specialty Uses

    • 3Turn on the air conditioning to its coldest and hardest-blowing settings. Place a thermometer into one of the Civic's air conditioning vents and monitor how the temperature drops. Once the air conditioning's temperature reaches a level, constant degree, remove the thermometer.
    • 4Open all four doors on the Civic. This will allow any colder air generated to escape, and this will keep the Civic's air conditioning for accidentally cycling off while you recharge the refrigerant levels.
    • 5Turn the recharging kit's valve all the way down and let the refrigerant charge into the Civic's air conditioning periodically, shut the valve and look at the kit's gauge. This will allow you to monitor the recharging process. Allow at least one minute to elapse between refrigerant charges into the system.
    • 6Shut the valve of the canister, once it has become depleted. Disconnect the kit from the low side port.
    • 7Detach the hose, gauge, and valve from the empty canister and attach them to a new canister of refrigerant. Reattach the kit's hose to the Civic's low side port and continue recharging the system, allowing a minute between individual charges. The can itself can potentially grow very cold and hard to hold, even with gloves. Should this happen, wrap the can in a towel warmed in water. Ring out excess water before wrapping the canister.
    • 8Place you thermometer into one of the Civic's air conditioning ducts. Keep an eye on the falling temperature within the Civic's air conditioning system. The system is charged when the temperature hits 40 degrees. Also, within the engine compartment, the Civic's air conditioning aluminum tubing become uniformly cold.
    • 9Shut the recharging kit's valve and remove the kit from the low side port, once the system has been successfully recharged. Shut down the Civic's air conditioning, turn the engine off, and remove your key from the Civic's ignition. Also, shut all the doors

I have a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire and am looking for where you would top up the regrigerant. Bought a kit and where I think I should fill it the nozzle does not fit.


There is a high pressure side and a low pressure side on your refirgirant line the fittings are different sizes because it is very dangerous if you hook up to the wrong side of the line. Make sure you read the directions on the recharge kit and follow them precisely. The high pressure side fitting should have a red cap and the low pressure side should have a blue cap. You will need to hook the charge kit to the LOW pressure side to recharge.

How do I recharge my A/C


Its a pretty easy job, pick up a recharge kit with a couple bottles of refrigerant from your local parts store. Then you just need to find the low pressure port which can be found by tracing the metal pipes coming out of the compressor. The recharge kit will only fit the low pressure port correctly. The basic principle is you want to charge the system while the AC is running until the pressure gauge on the kit shows its in the green, but you should read the instructions for your specific kit to make sure you are doing it right.

Basic: How do I re-charge 1989 toyota corolla air conditioning system.freon re-charger ket how to install.


Hi!!
Unfortunately, the R-12 refrigerant that your compressor used was phased out on 1994. You will need to an Automotive A/C Shop to have the system evacuated, flushed, vacuumed, retrofitted and charged with R134a refrigerant. This job requires the use of specialized equipment and according to EPA regulations must be performed by a licensed HVAC Technician.
Once your system was retrofitted, if you ever need to re-charge refrigerant. All autoparts carry easy to use, instructions included, R134a refrigerant recharge kits.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Do you charge the A/C system on the high or low side


Hello Friend:

You Charge your A/C on The LOW SIDE, You don't want to open the High Side or Even Touch the High Side Lines when Working They will Burn Your Hand.

Your doing your own Recharge=I Recommend that you Buy a Recharge Kit that Has a Gauge on It,It will Help you to Charge it at the Correct Pressure.

You'll Want to Keep the Needle on The Gauge IN THE GREEN.Don't Go into the Red or you could have other Problems because of to Much Pressure.

Hope this will get you Some COLD AIR !

How can i refill the air conditioning in my 2001 hyundai sonata


You can buy a recharge kit at your local parts store. The kit comes with a pressure gauge to let you know when the coolant level is good, over charged, or low. The kit cost about $25. With the kit hook up, it can't be hooked up wrong with the high and low pressure ends. You will be able to use this over and over, just buy new cans when you need to refill.

Air conditioning doesn't keep it cool


Your system may be low on R134a and needs to be recharged, If you did recharge it with the recharge kit and you over charged it, you'll have poor a/c performance too. The low pressure side should have 30psi to 50psi and the high pressure side should have 150psi to 200psi, any other readings will give low a/c performance and if to high of pressure can lead to system damage. Good luck and hope this helps.

Re-charge a/c in a 98 ford escort zx2


Your low side should have a "blue cap" on it. If it does not, it is located on the passenger side of the vehicle near the firewall.
