The accumulator it's self will have the low side fitting on it, on this year truck the accumulator does not come with the hose assembly, just the accumulator, which hose do you need?The discharge hose will have the high side fitting on it, the liquid and suction line don't, I don't know which one you need, but you will also need a retro fit kit if your going to change it to 134a freon, due to R12 is impossible to get, and R12 is the fitting's it will come with.

I was told that the problem with my AC system is that I need to replace the hose that goes from my compressor to my manifold. They keep speaking solely in those terms. I tried to get them to expand but...

Why does the hose need to be replaced ? Does it have a leak ? Maybe they think the orifice tub is in it ?? What is your A/C doing or not doing??

Replace AC Compressor, Accumulator, Orifice Tube, and Hose Assembly

Made a video on how to change the AC Compressor, Accumulator, Orifice Tube, and Hose Assembly on my 2003 Ford Focus 2.0L SOHC SPI. Symptoms started off as blowing hot air at idle and then it just blew hot air all the time and Firestone told me it had not compression and needed the compressor replaced. I got all my parts at AutoZone for a around $230. Save 20 On Online Ship To Home Orders Of 100 Or More

Where is the freon refill located at in the ford 2000 expedition?

hi, the freon refill point you are looking for is on the accumulator. but you can't see it cause it's buried by the heater hoses, battery cables, and firewall mounted fuseblock. remove the fuse block cover, and get a bright flashlight, look just below the fuse block and you will see the cylindrical accumulator(aluminum canister looking) and the low side pressure port with the plastic cap on it.

2002 ford expedition air conditioner needs R 134 refrigerant. I cant seem to locate the service port.

The low pressure valve on the 02 expedition is located on the accumulator on the passenger side fire wall. The accumulator is underneath the battery relay and a grouping of wires. Had to squeeze hand underneath a heater2_bing.gif hose and an a/c line to remove cap and hook up hose. Nothing has to be removed to locate the valve just a little touchy feely. Valve faces a 45 forward toward the engine.

Where do I hook the R-134 freon up to charge the system? I can't find the valve to hook up the freon, where is it located

Follow the large tube/hose coming out of the dash to a large aluminum canister that then has a hose or tube that goes to the compressor. It is probably located on the side of that canister (the accumulator) under a little blue screw on cap.. WEAR EYE PROTECTION AND GLOVES WHILE HANDLING REFRIGERANT!

1987 mustang ac problem

What you can do first is locate the accumulator. This is located in the low side hose near the firewall. Looks like a big canister with a hose out each side at the top. There is also a switch between the hoses. (example would be one hose at six oclock the other hose at twelve oclock and the switch at three oclock.) Unplug the switch and using a paperclip jump together the two wires in the connector you just unplugged. Do this with engine running and a/c on. If when jumped the compressor kicks on then your a/c is low on freon and needs to be charged after fixing the leak. Hope this is helpful.
