The ac recharge fitting is underhood at fire wall just below the alternator, about one foot down.

2003 civic. A/c sometimes very cold sometimes just average cold. Same weather condition

Hi your car is just old enough to need a recharge. Go to a auto parts store, find a AC recharge kit and follow the instructions. It's not hard and you will see a change right away. Be careful not to over charge the system, the computer will shut the AC down as a safety problem.

The AC in my 2003 VW Convertible is not cooling enough. What can I do about it?

A recharge is the first thing to have done. The system will lose some gas over time. The service center should be able to check for leaks as well.

Where,exactly, IS the low line port for recharging the AC on my 2003 Chevy Malibu? OR is the coupler that came with the recharge kit the wrong size? I've assumed that most AC units have a standard...

You found the high side port. The other line should have the low side and if it is not on there it might be at the AC evaporator which is a cylinder shape made of aluminum. The cap will have a L on it not a H. Do not force it on the high side.

Check to see if the center part of your AC compressor turns when your
engine is running and, your AC is on.
if it's not have the AC recharged.

My girlfriends 2003 beetle,s ac does not blow cold air. This happened after an issue with low coolant. Is there any connection here, or is there other potential causes?

does it blow cold ac when the car is started after sittin overnight? if it does and gradually gets warmer as the car warms up, then you may have an air bubble in your cooling system caused by the low coolant level. if it blows warm anytime, then your ac system may need to be inspected or recharged.

Cool but not cold air from my ac system

It sounds simple enough that you need to recharge your A/C unit. They can stop functioning properly after winter's end especially if they were not used. You should be able to get a recharge kit from your local auto parts store. Your Suburban should use the newer R142a refrigerant.

AC not blowing cold air

Most likely the A/C system needs to be recharged with freon.
Most shops charge under $50 for this service.
