2001 Nissan Altima air conditioner turns on and

It is normal for it to turn on and off to some degree. Low refrigerant will cause the A/C compressor to cycle on and off more frequently. You most likely have a slow leak. Eventually it will not work at all when the pressure gets too low. You may need a recharge, that might fix your problem temporarily. There are dyes you can put in with the refrigerant to detect where your leak is.

Ac refridgerent fill port

The A/C Fill port is the low pressure service port on this diagram;

It is located on the larger diameter aluminum tube coming back from the evaporator and firewall, to the A/C compressor. The fitting will have a taller skinnier cap on it, that may be blue or black. Not red. The R134a refrigerant cans will not connect to the high side port. This is good since the can could potentially explode/vent causing a sort of instant cryo frost bite to exposed skin. I recommend wearing gloves when recharging A/C sytems, especially if you are new to refrigeration systems.

Ask away if you have any more A/C questions or need help with charging the sytem.

My 03 Nissan Altima's ac is blowing hot. I recharged it and 2 months later it blows hot again.

Did you ever think, that it was leaking refrigerant in the first place, and polluting the atmosphere.
If you need to recharge it,you must by federal law,recover the existing freon,repair the leaks,pull a vacuum,test that the system holds,then recharge.
You need to get this done professionally, by a shop equipped and trained to work on A/C

Which port do I recharge my ac in my 2000 buick

If you have no Refrigerant in the system,you don't put any in. It will just leak out and pollute the atmosphere.
Go to a repair shop that does A/C work and follows correct EPA standards for working on air conditioning.
You can't do that job at home without proper training and equipment.

A/C blowing but not cold

R-134 coolant - not called Freon anymore - also pick up a recharge kit with a guage - do not over charge system! Try AutoZone or Advance - expect to pay around $25. Also, make your own leak test fluid from dish detergent and water. Put sdolution arounf all A/C fittings - you should not see any bubbles. If you do, then there's a leak and recharging the system will not last.

My air is blowing warm can i use 1342a?

The real answer to your question is yes, the kit may work. Here is why you shouldn't use a recharge kit: Theoretically, your vehicle's refrigerant (R134a) should last forever. Your AC system is a sealed unit and the refrigerant never gets used up. The only way you can lose refrigerant is by it leaking out of the system. However, if your refrigerant can leak out then air and contaminates can get in. This is bad. A recharge kit simply injects refrigerant into the system. It doesn't evacuate the system of any air and contaminates.This is critical. Your AC system should be hooked up to an AC machine in order to evacuate out all of the air and contaminates in the system. The machine will then hold a vacuum on the system to verify its integrity.Finally, the machine is able to inject new compressor oil that also contains a dye that will enable the leak to be located. If you use that recharge kit, you stand the chance of over pressurizing the AC system and causing premature compressor failure. This can be very expensive. Paying a reputable shop to evacuate and recharge your AC system is much less expensive. If your AC system hasn't operated in over 6 months, it's especially critical that you have the repair to your AC system performed correctly. Your AC system's seals may have dried out and the new compressor oil will be critical in helping to recondition those seals or the seals may need to be replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted if you need help to recharge the system.
