I have a 96, 5 years difference is quite a bit, but I'm quite sure it was still the same in 98, oh well, hope it's the same as mine: You have to access it from under the car, the blue cap fill port is near the a/c compressor.

Mazda6 ac recharge valves


the correct one should be smaller, and your recharge hose should be only able to connect to it. the smaller fitting is the low side, and the larger fitting is the high side. recharge only to the low side. the high side is used by technicians with elaborate ac manifold guages to monitor success. these guage kits can be bought at harbor freight for about 55 dollars,and give a better recharge,as you can regulate pressure as not to overfill, which lessens the cooling

Where is the filler valve for the ac unit on the 2.2 95 camry


It may vary, depending on the market, model, engine and brand of the system, but generally one of the refrigerant lines will be larger, with a thing on it looking like a large bicycle valve under a plastic cap.
This may assist, although it may not be identical to your car

I need to retrofit and recharge my 1988 Dodge Ram Ac.


First, the old R-12 must be completely evacuated fromt the system. R-12 and R-134A do not mix and won't function together. Once you are sure there's no R-12 left in the system, you need to install an R-134A fill valve on the low side AC line. This is where your refill hose will connect to add R-134A. Once the valve is in place you're ready to fill the system. The compressor requires a minimum of 20psi to engage and should not be filled to more than 45psi.

RECHARGING AC SYSTEM

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.

Low Pressure Valve 97 Grand Am


The low pressure valve is down by the AC Compressor. It is part of the aluminum manifold that connects directly to the AC compressor. It is accessible from above, but easier to reach from under the car.

By the way, is there any particular reason why you want to recharge your AC system? If it isn't working, adding refrigerant will not necessarily fix the problem. If the refrigerant has all leaked out, you probably need to evacuate the system first.

AC Recharge


Follow your line back from the AC pump, and look for a blue cap. About twice the size of a tire valve cap. That's your low side where you add.

How do I recharge the AC on 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette?


You need to check for leaks first. WalMart sells a kit to recharge your a/c system with R-134a and a stop leak sealer. Make sure your core valve is tight. You'll need a longer valve tool than what you use for your tires. Good luck

Ac recharge


You have a large diameter suction pipe 1/2" and a small pressure pipe 3/8" coming from your a/c compressor, follow the larger pipe until you come to a plastic cap sitting on the line, take off cap to see filler valve. Looks like a large tire valve.
