Question about 2005 Mercury Montego
Ok everyone lets see, first things first, in the picture below is your a/c liquid hose. you should recognize the 1. marked fitting as the "Oh looky it\'s right there right? This is easy." valve that is not the right one, it looks like it should be, but it\'s just a little too big.. boooo!, that is the HIGH pressure fitting. Now this picture is sideways so pretty much follow the metal line down and look toward the firewall and you should see another black cap like the one on number 1. Hello low pressure charge port see #2 it\'s connected to the bigger metal line. I bought the short canfor $10 less.. and already punctured the can. So there you go, good luck, don\'t kill yourself, and if you do I\'m not responsible. Not even karmically.

The low pressure port is located to the right and just below the power steering reservoir.
To charge the AC you can try this procedure or else get it charged by the local car ac charging shop.
1) To begin, you'll need to adjust the ambient temperature arrow on the gauge to the approximate temperature of the air outside.
2)Twist the gauge clockwise to prevent the loss of refrigerant already in the system.
3) Turn on the vehicle with the A/C on high.
4) Attach the hose to the low-pressure line spout. In most cases, the hose will not fit on the high-pressure spout. Attaching the hose to the high-pressure line could result in disaster.
5) Once attached, read the gauge. If the indicator is in the green area, your system needs little, if any, refrigerant. As a general rule, if it's green then it's fine. Don't mess with a good thing. If it is below the green area, detach the hose and then twist the gauge counterclockwise until the puncture underneath is above the threads.
6) Screw on the can of refrigerant, then attach the hose back to the low-pressure line.
7) Twist the gauge all the way down to puncture the can, then all the way up to allow the R-134 access to the system. You should see the indicator rise. If it rises to the green area after the can is empty, you're job is done.
