    One closest to firewall is "low" side. It is the one used to apply charge,
    One closest to compressor is "high" side.Usually used for gauge reading in conjunction with reading on low side. 1990 Jaguars along with most vehicles of that time used R12 which is no longer available. I purchased conversion kit that has "screw on adapters' for both high and low side valve ports, You can use current R134a in system. Hope this is more helpful.

Where do you put gas for air conditioner for s-type jaguar

Hi Barry, If you look carefully at the two AC pipes you will see two plastic valve covers (similar to valve caps on tyres, but larger). One is high pressure and the other low. When regassing the engine should be running ith the AC turned on. Regards John

I have a 2001 Jaguar S Type in which the battery has gone flat and I cant open the boot to get at the battery to recharge it. Any suggestions.

How about using the key? if not possible then boost the vehicle, you will have a N and P terminals at the engine under the hood, look for a red plastic cap that will be your positive and as for the negtive you can use any place on engine.

Ac blow hot air.has been recharged

First you need to check if the compressor is actually kicking in when started and you can do that by looking at it and you will see if it is working or not. If not working you ned to check the folowing : 1- AC compressor is getting electric , if not check the relay for the AS compressor. 2- Check if the AC compressor's clutch is kicking in (that is the part that is located on the front of the compressor , where the belt is fitted) 3- Check the compression of the AC compressor via a proffessional.

How to recharge ac on 2003 s-type

Hello AC is a little tricky when it comes to Jaguar cars as it has a certain system to charge the AC. If the problem is only low on AC gas , you have to pressure test the gas circulation to make sure that there is no leak , as recharging will not do the trick if it is a leak problem. If it is a matter of short on gas and pressure test proves that there are no leaks , then all what you have to do is connect the gas supply to the inlet gas pipe and charge slowly and on phases , while engine is running and AC is at low speed. You have to feed the gas at more than one time and close as Jaguar would not take the gas at once , it has to be done more than once at small portions so that it will take the gas. It is tricky as you have to know about AC pressure values , as if you put less that required AC would not cool properly , and if too much Compressor will disconnect and would not run properly Hope that helps

Addign refridgerant to S-Type (2000)

There is only one line which is considered a high side charge, I just went thru the headache of looking for the low line and it does not exist, I took it to a Firestone mechanical shop and they recharged the system at a reasonable price compared to what JAGUAR wanted

The low flow side should have a valve that looks like a tire valve. It should have a cap on it and be similar to a tire valve stem cap.
