First of all have you determined if the valve you are adding freon to is the Low Pressure Side of your A/C, that is the only side and the only safe way to add freon into your system. If it is the right valve you shouldn't have a problem attaching the hose.

If you have to add refrigerant,you have a leak.
If you have a leak,don't polute the atmosphere with cfc.
If you have no HVAC training in general,do not work on an automobile.
If you add too much refrigerant,and you will,because you have no way of knowing how many oz's are in the system,you could damage the compressor.
With the older R12 cfc, you need to be licenced just to buy and use it.
So leave all Auto A/C work ,to a shop the knows how to do it responsibly

Where is the low side A/C port?


If you are looking at adding r134a to the system, the new hoses you get with the r134a will only fit on the low side of the system. It is not like in the old days and the gage would fit on both sides. What with that said the low side is the one going to the dryer and the line is normally larger than the high pressure side. Hope this helps.

I am trying to put R134A in my car, and I wanted to make sure I put it in the low side service port, but I am having problems figuring out which one is the low side service port


The R134A connection hose will only fit on the low side service port. The high side port is bigger and will not fit that hose.

Air conditioner compressor making a knocking noise while running.i read that oil needs to be put in it if so where and how or do I need to plan on replacing the compressor


Get a can of R134a refrigerant with sealant and oil and add with a hose.
Can buy at Walmart for under $30.
Buy the conversion from R-12 to R134a kit if you need to.

Sometimes adding a few ounces of oil will quiet the compressor but you have to try.

Compressor is probably a few hundred dollars to replace, so try the cheap solution first.

Freon and connector for 1986 buick lesabre


there are two hoses coming out of the firewall side by side .. one is large and one is small ... they both have valve ports but only the large tube (low pressure side) is to be used for adding refrigerant .. if your connector from the R134a can does not fit ..then you probably have the older R12 system .. that has been outlawed now because of ozone layer destruction caused by it ..you cant get that anymore .. you can however convert your system to R134a but it involves washing out the entire system and replacing all rubber parts ..then attaching adapters so the R134a will connect (availible auto parts) .. by law any remaining R12 in your system has to be recovered, not vented to air .. (actually the r12 is worth a fortune right now but it may not be legal to sell ..its about a 25 times increase) ... the modification process requires a "certified" tech to do the work and the results wont be quite as good as the old r12 ... at least it will work if the system is cleaned out enough .. the two refrigerants dont like each other .. that is, the lubes that are used do nasty things when mixed .. if you wanted to you could become "certified" by attending some classes and passing a test on ozone layer depletion ... now they have discovered that r134a is a powerfull green house gas .. so that also will be phased out in the future .. its like 1600 times worse than CO2 ... r12 was a wonderful chemical .. very hard to beat its performance and stability .. .

Where do we put freeon for the air conditionner


There are only 2 fittings on your ac system. The low side is the one you put in refrigerant (r134a). It is the smaller sized fitting usually located on low side hose that connects to receiver dryer (looks like a can on passenger side firewall). The quick connect fitting on any recharge hose will only fit on this correct fitting. The other one (high side) is too large to fit. So you cant put it in the wrong one.

Where do you put the A/C fluid in a 1992 BMW 325is?


1992 is still probably set up for R12 refrigerant. You really need to get it converted to R134a, but there should be 2 valves located in the "hard" lines under the hood-1 for high pressure, 1 for low pressure. The freon goes into the low pressure side. Crank car and turn A/C wide open. The connector for adding the froen should only fit the low pressure side.

Chk.Eng. Light came on after adding coolant.


Only in that you probably knocked off a wire or vacuum hose while working under the hood.

R134a recharger nozzle won't fit on low pressure service port.


The low pressure port on the 2003 grand am is actually behind the engine, near the firewall on the passenger side. Good luck getting your hose down there though, I ended up buying an extension hose.
