Follow hoses from compressor or firewall area, normally larger of the hoses & tubing is low side.

SOURCE: How to add freon on a 1996 mercedes c220

The high side is on the driver's side of the condenser. the low side is usuall in line with the fuel cooler hose in the left side of the engine compartment. They are somtimes placed near the a/c compressor on the low side (suction) hose.

If the compressor will run turn it on and let it run for a few minutes, the line that gets cold is the low pressure side, this is usually the one closest to the firewall. The reason that they are 6 inches apart is that they are on opposite sides of the orfice tube, hence one is high pressure and one is low.

SOURCE: freon charge needed

Go to any autoparts store or walmart, thats the cheapest, and buy a can of 134a refridgerant. Make sure it is one with a hose and guage on it. The A/C fitting is under the hood on the passenger side of the car. There is two aluminum tubes running from the cab to the front. One of them has a round cylinder shaped canister on it. That is the low pressure side. There is a plastic cap screwed on it, remove that cap. Make sure there isn't any trash in the fitting on it. Then connect the fitting from the hose on the can and couple it to the fitting. The guage will tell you how much pressure is in it.
Then start your car, turn the a/c on high. And see what the guage says. It has a color code on it. If it is low, add some until it is about in the center of safe zone. Soon as it gets into the safe zone the compressor should kick on. If it don't, Then don't add any more and get too much pressure. Unplug the wire on the canister and stick a jumper wire in the end of the plug and see if that makes it come on. If it does then the low pressure switch is bad. You will have to have it replaced. Or use it with the jumper wire. But you would have to keep checking the pressure every cpl wks or so. Or when air isnt as cold. If you dont then it will burn up your compressor. That would be expensive.

Low pressure port is located close to the A/C compressor on the inlet tubing. You need to access it from underneath the front bumper/engine area.

Where is the ac port located to add freon


On a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero LTD, the a/c charging port is between the battery and the windshield. It is the port that has a cap labeled with an "L" (Low Side).

When the a/c is on, "L" (Low Side) gets cold while the "H" (High Side) gets hot.

Make sure you use the Low Side (cold) for adding Freon.

(note: over the counter freon kits should not fit the High Side port anyways) 6d9ed8b1-112d-471e-93a4-44bee9a08459.jpg

What is the correct pressure for freon in AC unit and what is the color of the cap where you add the freon?????


The charging port cap is usually blue, The charging fixture hose will not clip onto the wrong port, so you really can't mess that up. the pressure of a system as measured on the low side hose should be about 28-32 PSI with the system stabilized and engine at operating temperature.

How do you add freon to a 1996 nissan maxima?


It is the same as with any other car. The freon must be added through the low side service port. If the freon is low, it means that there is a leak. It is recommended that you find and fix the leak before charging the system with more freon that will just leak back out.

How do I fill air conditioner coolant.compressor is new, but I need to add coolant.


You need to evacuate mositure with a vacuum pump and then add a can of r134a with oil in the can. Then add more cans without oil. Up to the amount on the decal under the hood.
The low side charge port is behind the passenger fender well. Remove tire and the 7 fasteners holding the plastic fender liner in.
