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

How to get freon into my minivan with a good compressor and a clutch that works real quiet clutch that spins good

First you need to locate the low side of the charging system. This is usually determined by the connector you can get now days with the Freon. Not sure what year you are working with but the Schrader valve on the line will normally be two different sizes so you can not hook up to the high side. You can press down on the Schrader valve and if there is pressure in the system it will release a small amount of Freon, if you are trying to determine if it is allowing the Freon to enter the system. The Schrader valves screw in just like a bike stem valve does, if it needs to be changed. .

Why would it only smoke at low rpms or at light then goes away soon as start driving at higher rpm

Valve stem seals are leaking and/or valve guides are worn, opening the seals and allowing oil to run down valve stem. When de-accelerating, oil is sucked down the valve stems, then blown out when you start off. If it smokes under acceleration, then piston rings are worn.

Broken valve stem in my cars AC compressor. Wings are broken of the valve stem. No way to screw it out.

This is a job for the AC service mechanic. Once you replace the valve the whole Air conditioner system has to be put under vacuum before re-gassing and you need specialized equipment.

One of three valves on my low side AC line is leaking when i remove the black plastic cap. Its a smaller aluminum line coming from the AC box on the firewall and leading to lower part of radiator on...

This is the service valve and it can be repaired. It has a stem in it similar to a valve stem on a tire, with special o-rings. Repair kits are available at Napa, Autozone, etc. The system will need to be evacuated before repairs can be made. I hope this helps.

if its 1 tire low obviously look for a nail in the tread or a leaky valve stem. if you cannot find a nail/screws etc in the tread. take stem cap off spray windex on stem right into the center, if you see bubbles, your stem is leaking, replace the core, cheap... available at auto stores, also need special tool to remove stem( cheap).
if all 4 are low, might be due to cold temps, tires loose i think 3 psi per 10 deg drop in temp,

2003 honda civic air conditioning working intermittently

I would request you to please do the following steps to why the AC has stopped working.
1. Check to see if all the R-134a leaks out (meaning there's nothing in the loop to carry away heat). Leaks are easy to spot but not easy to fix without pulling things apart. Most auto-supply stores carry a fluorescent dye that can be added to the system to check for leaks, and it will have instructions for use on the can. If there's a bad enough leak, the system will have no pressure in it at all. Find one of the valve-stem-looking things and CAREFULLY (eye protection recommended) pokes a pen in there to try to valve off pressure, and if there IS none, that's the problem.
2. Make sure the compressor is turning. Start the car, turn on the AC and look under the hood. The AC compressor is generally a pump like thing off to one side with large rubber and steel hoses going to it. It will not have a filler cap on it, but will often have one or two things that look like the valve stems on a bike tire. The pulley on the front of the compressor exists as an outer pulley and an inner hub which turns when an electric clutch is engaged. If the AC is on and the blower is on, but the center of the pulley is not turning, then the compressor's clutch is not engaging. This could be a bad fuse, a wiring problem, a broken AC switch in your dash, or the system could be low on refrigerant (most systems have a low-pressure safety cutout that will disable the compressor if there isn't enough refrigerant in the system).

Thank You for using

AC Wont charge after replacing components

whenever the ac system has been opened it should be hooked up to a vacuum pump designed to evacuate the ac system of any foreign debris and oil etc and after should be able to hold a vacuum to show that there are in fact no leaks then if all is ok at this point you can then charge your ac with the proper freon specified for you car when the pressure reaches satisfactory level the ac compressor will then cycle on you should not bypass the low pressure switch
