You will use the low pressure which should be the top port. The gauge will only fit on the low pressure so if yours are switched you will be ok.

Where to I recharge my freon in a 2000 ford escort?

Look for an aluminum tube approximately 1/2 inch in diameter with a stub sticking out
of it with a black cap on it. This is the charge port. Unscrew the cap. There will be an aluminum stub. The recharge can should have a gauge on it, slide the collar back and
push it onto the stub Charge only into the middle of the green zone on the gauge when
the air temp is around 80 degrees and with the engine and A/C running. If all is ok
with refrigerant charge but not cooling then it may be a clogged accumulator or even
malfunctioning radiator fans (it wont cool at stop lights when this happens). Hope this is useful.

Re-charge a/c in a 98 ford escort zx2

Your low side should have a "blue cap" on it. If it does not, it is located on the passenger side of the vehicle near the firewall.
