SOURCE: where is low side ac hose for recharging located

You will notice the low side has a larger aluminum pipe, and along that pipe you will find the low side port. Anyways you can't connect the low side charging hose to the high side so there is no way you gonna make a mistake on connecting the can to the high side and blowing up the can.LOL

SOURCE: to verify which achose is the low side

AC hoses are normally marked on the caps of what side it is, a red cap indicated the high side whilst a blue would indicate the low side.

Also the low side quick connector is smaller then the high side, also the low side would be the one that is cold whist the high side would be hot when running, low side would head for the interior of the car whist the high side would head to the condenser in front of the radiator then onto the receiver dryer and into the car hitting the evaporator and back out to the compressor again.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 jeep grand that the AC unit keeps

On this model I think there is a plate,with a rubber gasket under it,that can be replaced,if the is a plate,then there is a gasket,that you can replace to solve the problem,if there is not,then you will have to replace the compressor to fix the problem.

SOURCE: apparently i have a leak

This hose should be replaced! It can see as over 300psi of pressure. To replace, first pull from a/c compressor(it is the smaller diameter aluminum tube) and remove all supporting bracket and bolts. Next follow this tube to the next connection near the fire wall, use two wrench's to seperate. There you go, hope this helps

1993 Toyota Corolla Dx: driving over labor day weekend, had the AC on for longer than i've normally had it on and noticed water on my passenger side floor mat. Then i looked and it was leaking from...


The drain on your evaporator core housing is most likely plugged. Condensation on the evaporator core drips down into the plastic housing and drips onto the ground through a hose on the firewall on the
passenger side.

Find the small hose on the firewall in the engine compartment. You should be able to pull off that
hose and see if its stopped up. If the hose is ok, you may need to remove some of the ac ducts
under the dash to get to the evaporator core housing to unclog the drain hole.

I have no doubt that thats the problem.

My ac doesnt come on because it says low refrigerant I want to knw where i wld fill up the ac coolant. and I have an oil leak that im told they would have to lift the engine to get to the leak for my 96...


See my tip on A/C recharge at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5833579-auto_truck_c_recharge

Can you isolate the oil leak a bit for us? If it is the rear crankshaft seal, that does require engine disassembly. The front crankshaft seal can be replaced with the engine in the car.

Low side on ranger for the port on the ac


hmm ..if you are looking for the low side air conditioner port .. then locate the condenser (thats in front of and looks like the radiator) .. you will notice two tubes going to that ..one is large the other small .. the small tube is the high pressure side .. the large tube is the low pressure side ... follow the large tube back until you find a cap that covers the low pressure port .. thats where you would fill with new refregerant (r134a) .. if you buy r134a, you can also get a filler hose and gage.. that hose will only hook up to the low pressure port ..it wont fit the high pressure port ...

I have a 1998 z-71, the low pessure valve stem on the ac is leaking, i have tried replacing the stem. Still leaking, also can the valve stem on the high pressure side be replaced?


Not without spending alot more money than you want, because you have to have a shop release the ac pressure if there is any, see if you can find the complete hose, then get it re charged, unless you are certified it cost quite a bit

Where does the freon go for a 99 expedition


Hi .. I just ran into the same problem .. I have a 2000 Expedition with the 5.4L engine .. the low side port is located on the passenger side of engine compartment just below the black metal bracket that contains electrical connections right in front of the firewall... you have to reach under this and locate the low side (larger line) and feel for the connection .. it is right in front of the accumulator .. There are two heater hose that hide the port .. you have reach under these to unscrew the port cap which is black .. you'll have to do this by feel .. I have found that you can by R134A charge with dye and leak sealant helps with small leaks .. if the system takes more than two cans be usre to add refrig. oil .. hope this helps

The air conditioner blows hot air. Is there a way I can test for a leak in the system or does this require a technician? I am thinking it's not a compressor because it is blowing.


Apart from doing a low side pressure check, you can try to recharge the system yourself with a refill kit that's readily available at most auto parts stores. If you're concerned about a leak, also get a can of R-134A with the UV dye that will show any leaking components.
RECHARGING AC SYSTEM


  1. Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
  2. Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
  3. Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
  4. Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
  5. Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
  6. You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
  7. Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
  8. If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective
Hopefully this answers your question and you're able to get your AC working again. Best of luck.

Power Steering Recently my power steering pipe blew and started leaking due to it comming in contact with the engine. Is it possible to remove and replace this pipe or is it a sealed unit to the steering...


if it's the low pressure side i'm sure a mechanic can replace just the broken part. if it's the high pressure side, best off just to get a new hose. if not, the hose is likely to leak again on the high pressure hose if the unit isn't replaced.

AC low pressure switch leaking


Sounds about right. The switch itself is relatively cheap -$20-40, what you are paying for is the special handling that is required to remove R12, the labor to remove the switch, vacuuming and refilling the system.
