When you go to the parts store to buy the freon have them show you where the suction side fitting is located.

Ac on i am getting hot air only

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.

How to recharge air conditioner on a 2003 air conditioner

Have you refilled any other car or truck air cond systems before? Does your fill hose have a measurement gauge? Is the air compressor coming on while you are trying to refill? If you are unsure about the compressor coming on, you should have the system inspected...most shops will look at and estimate for free. Hope this helps.

When i turn on my air conditioner in my 1999 durango it blows out hot air. can i put in antifreeze myself or do i need to take to the dealership?

Antifreeze is only for the radiator, does not affect the air conditioner, make sure you have the setting on cold, if it is still hot than take it to your local air conditioner re gas station, most auto electricians do it, dealerships usually send them out which you end up paying extra for!!! You just need a re gas in your air conditioner.

The low side port is on the side of the accumulator/dryer. The arrow is pointing to a hose connection, but to the right of that connection is the low side pressure port.

How to fill the air conditioner system with freon Corsica 1995


1.Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
2.Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
3.Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
4.Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
5.Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
6.You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
7.Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
8.If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective
Hopefully this answers your question and you're able to get your AC working again. Best of luck.

Dont know how to turn my air conditioner on in my.I

Your car has climate control. If the Ac isn't turning on at all, it's most likely low on refrigerant (R-134A). Below is a link on how to check/fill AC systems with refrigerant. Otherwise, the car should be serviced by a qualified AC shop. Hope this answers your question. All the best!

Air conditioner

the smaller cap, is where it is refilled at, that is the low side, the container will only fit on one of the openings, if fluid or air sound happens and doesnt stop for the neck on the ac recharge bottle then you are not on the right spot. but normally the caps are set as black and blue, but look for the smaller cap, if they dont look different before you do anything remove the caps, put the openings on the caps back to back to each other and look close you will see a difference in the cap size... the smaller is where you need to conect the recharger up to... my guess would be the cap by the cylinder is the smaller... I dont know unless I could see it... hope this helps...

Air conditioner

The one closest to your AC compressor... i.e. the part that the belt spins around.. Is the low side.. Not to mention, air conditioning recharge hoses ONLY FIT on the low side.. Worst case scenario, try both.. the one that it clamps down on to is the low side..
