You need to check your oil pump. This is a mechanical issue and would not show up on the computer.

It will be the large pipe from the fire wall to the compressor, usually closer to the compressor.

Why doesn't my 4 wheel low engage, seems like it goes back to two wheel drive. 4 high work good but turning switch to 4 low turns off 4 wheel, could it be electrical or something else. Any help is...

there is a max speed limit to engage and use 4 wheel low. try to engage while rolling 5mph and do not exceed 20mph in this "power" gear. also make sure the all drive components are well greased. lack of grease throws off drive alignment and may not easily engage.

Trying to locate the air conditioning low side service port on a 1999 Ford F 150

This job requires special tools and special training. If you lack either, you risk SERIOUS personal injury. Injury comes VERY EASILY!

You need to address oil levels, proper and legal refrigerant recovery, system evacuation, and recharge.

You were planning to also replace the receiver/dryer, correct? It also needs the oil in it measured and incorporated into the amount of oil (in %) that would need to be added. FAILURE to address these and other issues will guarantee premature system failure and likely compressor damage.

Take this job to a qualified shop.
