Question about 2001 Dodge Intrepid
The proper way to charge the A/C system is to do a full recovery of the refridgerant and oil in the system using the machine at the service shop. It will cost about $100, but it worth not damaging your system, and having to pay upwards to $400 for an air compressor, etc.
If you still insist on doing this yourself, you hook the R132a kit up to the low side of your A/C system. If you have the 2.7 engine, standing in front of the vehicle, go to the left fender, there should be a schrader valve with a black cap on it under the positive battery jump terminal. If you have the 3.5 engine, right above the air compressor, you will see two caps. one with a H, and one with an L. take the cap off of the L schrader valve, that's the low side.
Turn your A/C switch on high before you start the charging process. I would highly suggest wearing safety glasses. If the refridgerant gets on your skin, it could cause frost bite.
I hope this helps
