Unless you have the expertise; the tools: i.e. a vacuum pump; gauge set and, recovery equipment; you should not attempt an AC recharge
of the system: there is no way to properly charge a system based on amount of refrigerant gas; we do it based on temperature/pressure
refrigerant is dangerous,please take your car to an AC professional

Were to add refrigerant

If you have to add refrigerant you have a leak & need to have to system leak tested and then repaired,vacuum pulled & recharged. You need a shop that does A/C work,no way to know how much to add without knowledge & proper equipment.Be responsible & don't polute the atmosphere doing your own a/c work

I need to install refrigerant and do not know hoe.

If you do not know what you are doing I would suggest taking the vehicle to a mechanic that is certified to perform the repair. If you need to add refrigerant then there is a reason it is low. The leak needs to be found and the system needs to be sucked empty so it can be opened up and repaired. Then it needs refilled and topped of with the correct amount. I have seen it more than once that a customer will add too much freon to a system and do damage to a very expensive compressor. Sometimes a cheap fix is very expensive in the long run.

Where is refrigerant line located?

unfortunately you didn't buy the combination gauges need to get the correct gas in the system according the the pressures
without the knowledge and the equipment to do the job you will be making more problems for yourself that what it would cost to have the job done professionally
just make sure that you protective eye ware as the first result will be a rubber hose from too much gas
the second will be a busted compressor

Where is the air conditioner located in the engine? I want to add a can of refrigerant but cannot locate air conditioner, never mind the low pressure port!

Then you have no way of knowing it needs any refrigerant

If it did ,it would have a leak ,that would need to be fixed first

Need a repair shop that does A/C work

Can't work on that yourself ,as you have no training

Wanted to know what type of freon a 1998 ford taurus uses, and i also wanted to the amonut need if the air blowing out is warm..

You will need a repair shop for A/C work

If you have to add you obviously have a leak

All refrigerant has to be recovered,leaks repaired,
vacuum pulled,you can not do that,and charged,
you can not do that.

You have no way to measure the amount of
refrigerant to add

That fact you do not know the kind to use, is
enough to not get involved

Replaced compressor and dryer and need to know how much r 134a goes in

2lbs. 0oz. Cans of refrigerant come in 12oz. cans, so between 2.5-3 cans should fill the system. I recommend running a can of refrigerant + dye, price should not be much different, to make sure there are no leaks. So run 1 can of refrigerant + dye and 1.5-2 cans of regular refrigerant and you should be good to go.

I need to change a/c condenser

I know you have to get a new dryer every time the unit is opened, so if it leaked out all the refrigerant, which it has, you will need to install the condenser, and dryer, then add the new refrigerant. Replacing the condenser should be fairly easy, remove the radiator, and the condenser should fall out with lines attached to it. I am not an AC expert, but I do know that much. Hope this helps.

1991 S10 has old A/C and needs to be converted. Is there a cheap way to do this on my own? Anything special that I need to know?

If its R-12 they make a drop in HP-80 but i have only seen it in 30 pound cylinders. Can still get R-12 it just costs a lot. If you convert to 134a you need to flush and charge oil and refrigerant. if you need to add refrigerant it has a leak...... prob. o-rings on quick conects to condenser.

How to remove refrigerant lines from a/c compressor

Go to your local auto parts and buy the spring release tool for the Ford a/c line. Not expensive, but you need this to release the spring lock on the lines.

AC Refridgerant

I believe you meant R-12. In a 1995 year vehicle, you do not need R-12. You will need to charge with R-134a refrigerant. If you don't have the proper equipment to recover any refrigerant that is left in the system, I would recommend you take your vehicle to a garage only for the simple reason that if you can't recover the system, you don't know how much refrigerant is already in the system and so you don't know how much to put it to fill the system- and yes, you can overfill it and cause a whole other issue, which will usually result in poor cooling and also run the risk of damaging system components. Even if you know without a doubt that the system is completely empty- such as you had it apart to replace a component- you should evacutate the system for a minimum of 30 minutes to remove any moisture in the system. Moisture reacts with the refrigerant and if trapped in the system, can eat hoses, etc from the inside-out.
