Most charge it threw the low side ac line, there is 2 high side and low the low is the bigger fitting of the two, and should be capped follow the ac lines you will find it. However I really suggest you have it done with a AC machine by a certified tech. There is moisture in the system, what refrigerent that is in there should be recycled then a vacum to get it out, it also takes some ofthe old oil out and new put back in usually best mixed with uv dye to detect a leak later. Good luck

On my BMW 325XI Wagon, the ac is not cooling, the drier, expansion valve, compressor & ac control module have been replaced. Starts to cool as low as 65 degrees & then compressor shuts off.


sounds like unproper ac evacuation before charging the freon to your ac system. do a proper evacuetion to the system check the ac compressor oil charge the proper freon & amount check the vehicle tag for the amount of freon under the wood close to the radiator

Ac has charge but compressor will not engage


Did you put freon in it?,removing the negative cable for 20 seconds,will reset the ac,but there is going to be a problem with it,if it shut down,so it may need freon,if this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

When putting freon in with car running freon does not go in


Your ac is controlled by the computer and once it recognizes that you are low on freon it shuts the compressor down.. You will first have to start putting a can of freon into the system without the car running . With your gauges still hooked up disconnect the the battery and reconnect it after ten seconds or more. This will reset your computer. Start your car and then turn on the ac. The compressor should come on and you should be able to continue charging your ac.

Ac not working right


If the system was workin enough for you to add freon and stop leak you may have overcharged the system and blew out the location of the leak to make it lose enough charge that it shut down from being low on charge. There is a low pressure switch that will stop the clutch on the compressor from engaging when low on charge. The hose connections have O-rings and the system needs to be discharged and the Freon captured to replace the O-rings. ALL O-rings should be replaced at once if that is the case. Look to see where the red dye showed up if you put in the stop leak. Normally the seal in the compressor is what starts leaking first. It sounds like your leak is bad enough that stop leak will not be the answer so you may have to break down and take it to a shop to check the system.

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 freon into 1993 grand cherokee 5.2 engine?


Look for the large ac line/hose coming out of the ac compressor,and follow that line until you come to a small ac port,this is the low side where you will hook up to to charge.I take it you have purchased a charge hose and freon?Put the can of 134a freon on the can tap at end of charge hose,and the quick connect will snap on the low side ac port on the vehicle.Turn the freon can upside down and turn the t handle on the can tap until it pierces the can.Start the vehicle,and set all settings high blower motor,max air,recirculate mode.The ac compressor should cycle on and off,this is normal,until there is enough freon in system.When the can starts to empty,shake the can lightly until empty.It will be hard to tell,but you will figure it out.Turn the can t-handle back out,and unscrew the can an repeat process until enough freon is in the system.You can get to much freon in the system.so see hoe much it takes to fill it on the label under the hood.If the system was not empty,it won`t take the fill amount,go slow,and feel the cold parts(large ac line near the firewall).They should get dern cool,to cold,and sweating really good.Stop when this happens,and it is cool inside.

I have a 92 s10 with an ac problem the the clutch engages and it has freon i have checked the fuses all good and when i lead a jumper wire from the battery it acts like its working but nvr blows cold air


a system can have some freon in it and not be totally charged. You should consider either just attempting to add freon or take it somewhere to have it evacuated and put on a deep vacuum for 30 minutes or more and put a full charge on it.
