    yea i cant find where to put in a can in my truck because i think it needs one. The compressor keeps kicking on and off. what i am looking for is the nipple where to insert the can of freon.

  • nnikci81734 Apr 26, 2010

    yes i see the one under the hood but the thing is too big. I thought that they had two insert areas. one being the big and the other the smaller one. im looking for the small nipple.

The fitting your looking for is behind the air filter box near the passenger side fire wall.

Ewebber is correct....you want to charge from the SUCTION line going into the compressor,,,,,not the HIGH pressure line, which could backfeed into the 134 can and cause it to explode....The suction line will be the bigger line and should be located either on the line itself or on the dryer canister.....check pressure with gauges before opening the valve to introduce the added refrigerant...

Use the LOW PRESSURE side fitting. It is on the line from the compressor that does NOT come from the radiator. It will have a black cap on it and look something like a air valve-stem on the tire, only about half again as big, (larger.) I hope this helps. IF you cannot find it, a person at Autozone, or Advanced Auto,etc. will show it to you for free.

    That is what I am trying to describe for you. The nipple you want is the one that is in the line, from the compressor that does NOT come from the A/C radiator.

Did you use the proper gauges to measure the high side and low side pressures as you added the 134 (I assume not Freon)? If not, it's possible you put too much 134 on the high side and either you kicked a breaker for the pressure or you just burned up the compressor.

How to put freon in jaguar s-type


The compressor is located underneath the drivers area towards the front. Right beneath the compressor is the low pressure port and there's where you put your freon. You have to raise the car.. follow your owners manual for jacking... you should also use a hard jack for support since you will go a little underneath the front of the car... use alight. I recommend you get the freon 134 kit that has a pressure gage  so the you can see if the freon pressure         ( pressure high full or a problem with system ) or low and needs charging

AC air is only cool, how do you recharge the compressor?


You can buy a can or,refil kit of R-134-A at walmart however only put the freon in on the low side (read the directions) if the freon gas will not go in; run an 18 gauge wire from the battery to the compressor clutch switch to run the compressor if the freon gas still won't go in it must be evacuated and, recharged by a shop. only put in enough freon to get the system cold any more than that and, you will lose cooling again (over charge)

Ac is blowing warm air in my 2005 sierra 2500hd duramax. Any idea


Your system has R-134 Freon in it. the 134 is made up of smaller molecules than the old R-12. The R -134 permeates through the rubber parts of the system. If the system gets too low on Freon, the compressor will stop coming on.(low pressure cut out switch). Have the system serviced with an A.C. machine that can vacuum, measure the amount of Freon in the system, and add the right amount. The machine can also inject die. Later the die will show up under a black light.This will show any leaks you may have.

R12 freon has been discontinued due to ozone depletion there for we have r 134a which is just as good but wont hurt the attmosphere you can do a conversion to 134 by changing the fittings to put freon in system you dont have to really change anything else
