That system has an accumulator IIRC & it's on the low side & also has the low pressure cut out switch on it. Should be on P/S near shock tower or firewall. Should be a certain sized fitting & the low side hose will only fit the low side line so harry homeowner hopefully doesn't blow himself up or get a face full of refrigerant.

How to recharge ac


There are many ways to recharge an ac system but to do it correctly is a bit more in-depth. You can read the ac tag under the hood of your vehicle and purchase a can of coolant then hook it up to the low pressure side as shown on the can. Start the engine and follow their instructions. If you have a leak you should add UV dye to the system to locate the leak then repair as needed. To recharge system I recommend purging the system to a proper catchment contaner, recycle the refrigerant as required. Put an ac manifold on the high and low ports of the ac system (they are sized to only fit in the proper location) then attach a moisture removing vacuum pump create a vacuum in the system of 20lbs at sea level or more. Close the high and low pressure valves and disconnect the vacuum pump connect the refrigerant to the vacuum line, start the vehicle, turn on the ac (fan on low) add the amount of refrigerant that your vehicle tag requires.

CHARGE EMPTY AC


year, make, model, engine size?

If your changing those items it would be best to have the system placed under a vacuum. Typically this is done for about 30-45 minutes to help boil out any moisture in the system. The system can then be filled.

You can fill the system through the low side port. Recharge cans typically come with a low side fitting that will attach to this port. The low side fitting is always the smaller fitting on the larger line.

There should be a sticker under the hood that has the max refrigerant capacity. You will likely need several cans of recharge to get to this max. get as close as you can without going over.

Start the vehicle. turn on the a/c, attach a can of refrigerant to the low side fitting. open the valve on the can. you should hear the transfer of refrigerant from the can to the a/c system. eventually the a/c compressor will kick on when the low side pressure has built up. add more refrigerant as necessary.

these are generic instructions at best since you did not post a year, make, model, or engine size.

When i turn on the a/c,the compressor does not work


CHECK REFRIGERANT CHARGE. USING A MANIFOLD GAUGE SET. HOOK MANIFOLD GAUGE SET TO LOW PRESSURE PORT AND HIGH PRESSURE SIDE PORT. LOW SIDE PRESSURE SIDE SHOULD HAVE 25 - 36 PSI AND HIGH PRESSURE SIDE SHOULD BE 178 - 237 PSI. IF LOW SIDE PRESSURE SIDE READ BELOW 20 PSI THE LOW PRESSURE SWITCH WILL NOT TURN ON THE AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH NEED TO ADD LITTLE MORE REFRIGERANT. IF REFRIGERANT LEVEL CORRECT CHECK AC COMPRESSOR FUSE AND RELAY.IF POWER GOING TO AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH YOUR COMPRESSOR CLUTCH HAS OPEN WINDING. AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH NEED REPLACING.

Where is the intake port for freon in 2000 ford expedition


The AC is charged with R134 refrigerant through the low pressure side of the system, the charging port is on the Accumulator/Receiver Dryer, this is a round canister under the hood on the drivers side near the rear of the engine bay. Below is a picture of the Accumulator so you can ID it.

Audi A4 Ac charge valve.


On that year a4 and a6 there is no low side charging port. (sucks)
The way you charge those systems is by evacuating all of the refrigerant, then with the vehicle off, add the correct amount of refrigerant to the high side port (turning the compressor over by hand occasionally)

FACING THE CAR, WHERE IS THE EXACT LOCATION TO ADD FREON TO A 1997 CHEVY MALIBU. WE FOUND A RED CAP BUT UNDERSTAND THIS IS NOT WHERE YOU SHOULD ADD. HELP .....


The low pressure refrigerant port is near the firewall2.gif, just after the receiver/dryer. You'll need a gauge and preferably an ac test manifold. You can use the manifold to add refrigerant up to the point where the system maintains the pressure level in the green area. There should be a blue cap on the low pressure valve.
I believe your malibu take's 12 ounce's of R134, don't over charger the system. You'll blow O rings and worst kill the A/C compressor.
Good luck and hope this helps. Here is a link for A/C recharging. http://www.geocities.com/vantaray/air_conditioning.htm
