Look at the hoses on the back of the a/c compr.. there will be a big and a thin hose, the big hose is the lower pressure hose, that's the one you want to recharge your a/c system, stay away from the thin that one is high pressure, follow the big hose, on it you will find the port to recharge the a/c system.

    Also your car came with R12 freon, you will need to get a 134A adapter ( low side ) that will screw on to the R12 port so you can recharge your a/c with 134A freon.

1990 4runner. Alternator quit and shop fixed it by replacement in late spring this year. After that, the air conditioner started working only intermittantly. I thought the ac was going out so I bought...

Most likely the problem is an intermittent vacuum problem or sticking air blend door between the outside air and interior. Check all you vacuum lines for leaks and check the hot water control valve on the water line that runs from the engine to the firewall.

How do i know if the ac needs to be recharged or replaced in my 1990 toyota celica gts.blows hot air.

Normally, if when you turn on your AC the compressor will activate and you can visually see the pump turning if you look. If it turns, then you can attempt a recharge. If it doesn't turn, then first check the fuse for the AC and if that is good then your compressor might not be any good.

While this is just a quick check, and you system will probably take further diagnosis, it is a general guideline that should get you into the ballpark.

How do i recharge the air conditioner on my 1990 lexus 400

This is best handled by a shop which specializes in AC repair. I doubt you have the proper equipment to flush, lubricate and recharge the system. It isn't as easy as it once was when you screwed a can of refrigerant to the nipple on the low pressure side of the circuit.

1996 toyota tercel air conditioner will not work

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Let us try to help.

Yes, you read correctly; if the refrigerant charge is low,or the refrigerant has leaked out, the AC compressor will not activate. Pressure switches built into the system inturupt the power to the AC clutch if there is insufficient system pressure.

I would suggest taking the vehicle to a qualified garage, and have the service tech there hook his set of 'AC Gauges" to the car. After he does that, he can tell you if you need a partial charge, of if you system is empty. I would def recommend the car be checked with the AC gauges; as adding refrigerant to the system without knowing how much is currently in it can damage the compressor.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!

Air conditioner

the smaller cap, is where it is refilled at, that is the low side, the container will only fit on one of the openings, if fluid or air sound happens and doesnt stop for the neck on the ac recharge bottle then you are not on the right spot. but normally the caps are set as black and blue, but look for the smaller cap, if they dont look different before you do anything remove the caps, put the openings on the caps back to back to each other and look close you will see a difference in the cap size... the smaller is where you need to conect the recharger up to... my guess would be the cap by the cylinder is the smaller... I dont know unless I could see it... hope this helps...
