How do you charge your air conditioner unit

The reason the fitting is too small is that is the HIGH side fitting ,look for a larger fitting in one of the larger size hoses or tubing

Air not blowing

You just need a recharge.Go to an auto parts store and get a single can of R12 and the recharge line.Find the fitting on the AC line that the recharge line fits on(there's 2 but only fits 1)and hook the end on the can then on the fitting.THEN screw the puncture screw into the can lid to puncture the top of can,then turn that screw back out to release the Freon into the line and into system.To be sure you get all the Freon out of the can,stick the can in a small bucket of hot water while it's recharging your system.That's an old timers trick I use and it works.Once empty,remove the line from the fitting on the system first,remove the can from the line and save the recharge line.Ya may need it again one day.Engine must be running with AC on full when recharging the system.Stay Cool dude.

Please show me the line where I recharge the freon on 96 geo metro. I can't find the low side

Typically the fitting on the recharge kit will only fit on the low-side line. Here is a good website that explains the recharge process:

We bought this van and it had been sitting for a year. everything checked out ok but the air conditioner will not put out cold air. does the van sitting that long affect the performance of the air...

The coolant used in ACs has very small molecules and no system remains tight enough to prevent loss. You probably only need to recharge it if it has not been opened. You can buy a kit with pressure gauge, coolant, connection hoses and instructions for <$25 US in auto parts stores. Make sure though that your system uses R134 coolant (especially if it is older) otherwise you may need a conversion kit to install first.

How do i recharge the air conditioner on a 1996 chevy subrban 5.7 engine

Just get an air conditioner recharge kit from Walmart or most parts stores, and hook the filler tube to the low side connector. It will have a blue cap. You can't get it wrong because it won't fit on the other one. Start your engine, turn on the AC and keep adding until it won't take any more. Usually 2 to 3 cans if it's right empty.

Where is air conditioner recharge port

remember you will always charge an air conditioner on the low side. which is always on the larger hose. there is a smaller one which is the high side so stay away from the small one.. look up near the radiator and see if you see the dryer which is about 3 inches across and 8 inches long and looks like a cylinder.. on this device there is a port where you can charge it .. also this year might be up near the firewall .. they change locations too often .. thanks and holler if you need more.
