Follow the thicker pipes vs. the thinner pipes to find the low pressure side fitting. It might have a blue or black screw on plastic protective cap with an o-ring.

The charge kit will have a tube that has an end that fits only the low side quick connect pressure fitting.

Good luck getting colder air conditioning!

The low pressure fitting for AC is located on the top of the receiver/dryer (filter). The receiver dryer is located in the right front fender behind the front bumper. You will need to access this from underneath the car. Leave it to Ford to put this fitting in a spot that is not easy to find or connect to. Good luck.

SOURCE: AC Low Pressure location on 2004 Chevy Suburban

You find the AC low pressure at the top of the compressor, orientated toward you , facing the front of the vehicle. You can also follow the compressor line to reach the port.

The valve is covered a plastic cap covering it.
Near the compressor you find two ports, the high port and low port.

To find out which one is the low port, run the air conditioner for a couple of minutes withthe engine on.
Then turn off the care and touch the lines from compressor to the two ports covered with plastic caps. Only one of the pipes will be cold, the cold line will lead you to the low port.

Regards.

SOURCE: where is low side ac hose for recharging located

You will notice the low side has a larger aluminum pipe, and along that pipe you will find the low side port. Anyways you can't connect the low side charging hose to the high side so there is no way you gonna make a mistake on connecting the can to the high side and blowing up the can.LOL

SOURCE: Audi A4 Ac charge valve.

On that year a4 and a6 there is no low side charging port. (sucks)
The way you charge those systems is by evacuating all of the refrigerant, then with the vehicle off, add the correct amount of refrigerant to the high side port (turning the compressor over by hand occasionally)

SOURCE: Where is the ac low pressure side port on 1997 Cougar

Its on the Passenger side of the engine bay between the strut tower and the valve cover. It should have a blue cap on it, or maybe a black cap. Follow the ac line coming out of the back of the compressor and youll see it.

I am not exactly sure which ac port, High or low side (or both), to put R134a refrigerant into my 1984 LTD Crown Victoria. The ac hasn't worked in about 6 years. Not sure if ac stays charged while...


If the compressor really has sat that long, the seals will be dry and you will not likely be able to keep R134 in it. Always fill on the low pressure side. The fittings are a different size, so your fill hose should not fit on the high pressure side. The low pressure side is along the return from the cooler.

Where is the low pressure for AC located on 2000 Lincoln Navigator


The low pressure port is the only one that your AC charging tool will fit on if you are planning to charge the AC unit with refrigerant. The high side port is much larger and the quick connect tool won't fit it. Look up high toward the firewall on Fords and Lincolns.

Where are the high and low side connections for the ac located


I assume you mean the High pressure line and the low pressure line. They run from the compressor to the condensor on the left side of the engine compartment as you face the engine. If your trying to identify which is the low pressure line. Your refill fitting will only fit the the low side if you have R134A . If you have R22 refrigerant you will need to get the Haynes or Chilton's repair manual on the vehicle to identify the proper line. There is normally a small dryer on the low side. If you don't have the manual for this a pressure gauge is a necessity.

The Low Pressure Side connector will be smaller than the High Pressure Side connector so the refill hose will fit properly only on the Low Pressure Side.

Ac not working


1st you must check for correct refrigerant levels in ac system, must be done with a/c guages, you have a pressure switch that senses correct pressure in a/c system if you are low in refrigerant the a/c will not come on. if you have good pressures high side 70-95 low side 70-95 depends on ouitside air temperature, with the engine off then look at the switch in the high pressure line, jeep also has a fuse in the fuse box under the hood and a a/c relay please check those too. I hope this helps. (red is high side hose- small fitting plug , blue is low side- larger fitting If ac is working and compressor is on good pressure ranges from high side the red hose 160 to 230 depending on temperature outside; low side blue hose 27-46 low side depending on outside temperature, Wear glasses to protect your eyes. I hope this helps good luck
