2003 Ford Focus ZX5 Hatch back there are two possible places to recharge your ac. One is under the hood right hand side near the from grill, there is a little black cover over it this is the high side. The other place which takes a small connector is on the passenger side wheel well, easiest way to get to it is to take the front tire off.

What kind of ac coolant does it have 134a or r 12 and where is the low pressure port for the ac located


Depends on the year. Cars in the early 90's used R12. Anything later uses R134a. The size of the charge ports will define the R134a port. An adapter is needed to fit on the charging hose. R12 requires no such adapter. Ther charging label under the hood will tell you what refrigerant is needed too. Since you failed to give enough information on what make and model car you have, a general answer for the location of the low pressure port will be given. On the compressor, the larger diameter hose connection is the low side. Connect there, or look for the drier/accumulator (Large diameter silver container near the firewall). Connect there. You will need to access the AC information label under the hood to determine how much freon to add to the system.

My car didn't take the R-134a


If your car ac is not taking in refrigerant, it could be caused by several things.
If you have recently done work on the system and you are going to fill the system the first time, you will need to pull a very deep vacuum before trying to charge in refrigerant. If you have already properly evacuated the system and having problems getting the correct charge adjusted, you may be having problem with pressure equilizing between the refrigerant source and your ac system. To get the refrigerant going again, you need to connect the charging hose on the low pressure side of the ac system and turn the fan and ac on cool. The pressure in the ac system on the low pressure side will get lower than the pressure in the refrigerant container and flow will start. When charging initially, charge liquid on the high pressure side and with the ac system running, charge gas on the low pressure side. To charge liquid, invert most container so spout is down, to charge gas, keep container right side up. Charging by gas help you to not over charge your system. Beware on most vehicle ac systems the suction and discharge connections are two different sizes and require the proper adapter. If you still having problems creating a pressure difference to move refrigerant, you can try immersing the refrigerant container in warm water or applying warm air to the exterior of the container.
Hope this helps.

Where is the low ac port on 1999 Mitsubishi gst


The charging port is in the low side AC line from the AC compressor on the engine, the low side line is the larger of the two lines coming from the AC compressor.

Where is the port for chargeing the AC on a 2000 chevy impala


Common question here.
There are two ports on the ac lines with black caps. One is larger than the other to help prevent you from connecting to the wrong side of the compressor.

Air o0nditioner compressor does not ingage when A/C is turned on and does not furnish cold air


The 1st thing you need to do is have the refrigerant charge in the system checked, if the charge is low the compressor will not engage. This year and model is prone to leaks at the AC refrigerant line connection and at the AC Condenser core.

How do i charge the air conditioner on a 2000 ford focus. Where are the connectors


Look for the ac compressor,and locate the large ac line coming off the ac compressor.Follow it until you come to the ac charge port.this is where you charge it up with a charge hose that you have.Put the can on the can tap,and the quick connect to the ac port on the ac.Turn the t handle on the can tap clockwise until all the way down.hold the can upside down.start engine and turn the ac on high blower.and recirculate.shake can lightly,until the can empties.Turn the t handle counter clock wise,almost all the way out,and remove the can .Repeat to add another can,Don`t put too much freon in,and add ac oil also.If it lost freon,it lost oil,failing to do this could cause the ac compressor to lock up.One 4 oz can will be fine.look for the large ac line to get cold,and the accumulator to get real cold,then stop with the freon.

How do i put A/c coolant into a cadillac deville 1999. I dont have the owners manual and it needs some A/c fluid.


There is no such thing as an ac coolant, maybe the ac refrigerant you are refering to. The ac is not getting cold? You can buy a can of 134 that has its own charging hose and gauge. Find the low side line of the ac. Start the car first turn on your ac then connect the hose and charge it. It is very simple, now the gauge will show you how much you have in there already, and don't overcharge it.

All R134a connectors are the same. There is a high and low connector, these are different sizes. You either have the wrong "charger" kiit (possibly for R12) or are using it incorrectly.
