Low pressure service port is located on the Accumulator ( Silver Cylinder ) where the low side A/C line domes from the compressor. Location is on the passenger side fender by your evaporator housing and blower motor housing.

Loss oil preasure in my 351 L


Sure sounds like stopped up return passageways, common in old engines. Or a failing oil pump, not common. Are you sure about this low mileage? Pull a valve cover and check for sludge.

You might want to see if it might be low on 134a . Testing gauge can be bought at any auto parts store. Always check your a[c ounces ratio first. Auto parts store can do that. Refer to instructions for proper use. Use proper tools when working with things that are under preasure.

How to recharge recharge airconditioner


Hi, determine if your car uses R134 or R12 refrigerant. You will notice screw type connectors on the both the High Pressure Side and Low Pressure Side lines in models using R12 refrigerant. R134 compatible models have quick connect valves on both sides. Models made before 1995 may use the old R12 refrigerant. If this is the case, you must have your Chrysler's air conditioning system retrofitted to use R134 refrigerant. Mixing R12 and R134 refrigerants is dangerous and may cause damage to your vehicle. Check your air conditioning system pressure using an automotive air conditioning pressure gauge. Keep in mind that in order to get an accurate reading, the air conditioner has be turned on the coldest setting with maximum blowing power. Remove the Low Pressure Side port valve cap and set it aside. The location of the port varies, but it is usually in front of the engine block. Attach the refill hose to the port on the Low Pressure Side of the air conditioning system. The Low Pressure Side port is smaller the High Pressure Side port. Because the ports are different sizes, the refill kit hose should fit only on the Low Pressure Side port. Additionally, the High Pressure Side port will usually have a red cap or be marked with an H or the word High Allow the air conditioner to **** the refrigerant out of the can by slowly turning the valve on the refill kit hose. Pay attention to the way you hold the can. Most kits will have you hold the can upright when you recharge the air conditioning system. It may take as long as 10 minutes to empty a single can. Turn the valve to the off position and remove the refill hose from the port. Recap the port before closing the hood. Let the air conditioner stay on for at least 30 minutes. This allows the refrigerant to move throughout the entire system.
Take care

2002 Chrysler Town & Country air conditioner only blows out hot air. Filled it with freon, but did not help. What else could be wrong with it?


How do you know it needed freon, without gauges its hard to know, most people add freon because its not cold and that may not be the problem, in turn they cause more damage to the system,these vans are famous for leaks.check all the fuses,then jump the low preasure cycling switch and see if compressor truns on,youll need to look at the clutch to see it turn,then the next step is to check the lowside and highside preasures,

Injector low circulation low on all cylinders


Low compression can be caused by a blown head gasket, cracked cylinder head, burnt or damaged valves, worn or cracked piston rings, scored block cylinders. In all this cases an engine would have low compression on all cylinders unless something major is wrong, or the compression gauge is not measuring properly. --------------

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution if helped.thank you for using fixya.

Where is the thermal valve for the ac located on


Not shure what you mean by"thermal valve" There is a low preasure switch on the accumulator(big tank) that turns the ac clutch on and off,and shuts system down when to low on freon. there is also a high preasure switch that shuts down the system on the compresor.The only other "valve" would be the orifice tube or somtimes refered to as an expansion valve- this would be in the high preasure line, and can be found by looking for a spot in the line that has dimples. If this is the part you are trying to replace, you really need to take to a shop, as the freon must be recovered by law,and can be dangerous to handle if you don't know what you are doing.
