Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid
Look for the thick pipes vs. the thin pipes and a quick connector that goes on to the hose that fills the r134a via a can of freon.
Or, do you mean, where is the freon leaking out of? The freon leaks out of o-rings, seals, and possibly the compressor.
I had a compressor changed in my 1990 Cadillac Deville because it was leaking there. This is a common problem on older cars.

the most common cause of course is a low system refrigerent charge, this would be due to a leak, the most common cause of leakage is the front shaft seal of the AC compressor

On that model,it will cycle on and off while you add freon.If it does not ,then the ac system might have a problem.The low side pressure switch is located on,or near the accumulator .Unplug the switch and take the wire end plug and connect the two plug in`s together(cross it out on the wire).This will make the ac compressor engage and you can charge the system,do not leave the wire connected,plug it back up to switch.If the ac compressor does not come on ,then have the system checked out.

You may have created an over charged condition and at this point the a/c compressor will cut off on high head pressures. This can be verified by installing gauges to the systems high and low side service taps and reading the pressures.An overcharged system will start the compressor briefly but soon cuts off once pressure goes to 350 - 400 lbs on the high side. Acceptable pressures for this system should be no greater than 250 high and low suction should drop to 40-50 psi.You might recover the charge and evacuate the system,then try bringing the charge back to proper level.A sight glass in the reciever drier really helps determining proper fill.Once all bubbles have dissipated from the sight glass during charging ,one should stop at that point to avoid overfilling.Too much freon is worse than a low charge especially in hot ambient conditions....

when the ac doesnt blow cold and the compressor pump doesnt click on ,this can only be done with the proper machine to remove the gas and weigh how much was taken out ,then oil recovery and a vacumn then recharge with the corerect weight of gas .
