SOURCE: AC stopped working

Try disconnecting the battery for a minute or so and reconnect it. Believe it or not this has worked for me numerous times. If this doesn't work then disconnect the switch on the accumulator. The accumulator is located in the low side (big) hose near the firewall on the passenger side of truck. Using a paperclip jump the two wires (harness side) together with engine running and a/c on. If compressor kicks on when jumped either it's low on freon or the switch is bad. Hope this is helpful.

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.

Im trying to recharge my ac in my 1995 audi 90


buy r134 can w/pressure gauge at local parts or department store. Folllow directions on can as far as application. The valve only fits the low pressure line, so there is no way to accidentally attempt charging high pressure side. Unscrew cap, attach valve of r134, check gauge. if fully charged already, do not overcharge... won't cool better, only cause damage.

I want to recharge the ac but cant find the input fitting?


Go to autozone and ask for a can of: R134-A. Make sure to get a can with hoses and a gauge. Don't let the pressure build up to much. make sure you hook it into the right connection. Its the metal hoses right by the radiator. -------------- Its usally a pretty easy job, especially if you get one of the kits with the gauge in it. They can be found at autozone, etc. The connectors are pretty smartly done. This thing will only connect to a low pressure port on your car. You are looking for a blue or gray cap on one of the A/C lines with an "L" on it. ------------------ Locate the Low Pressure Side service port. It is usually on the driver's side of beside the engine block. Remove the black cap marked L. Look at the connector type to determine if your car uses R134 refrigerant. The R134 compatible systems have a quick connect valve on the Low Pressure Side. ----------------- Hope this helps.Thanks.

How to recharge recharge airconditioner


Hi, determine if your car uses R134 or R12 refrigerant. You will notice screw type connectors on the both the High Pressure Side and Low Pressure Side lines in models using R12 refrigerant. R134 compatible models have quick connect valves on both sides. Models made before 1995 may use the old R12 refrigerant. If this is the case, you must have your Chrysler's air conditioning system retrofitted to use R134 refrigerant. Mixing R12 and R134 refrigerants is dangerous and may cause damage to your vehicle. Check your air conditioning system pressure using an automotive air conditioning pressure gauge. Keep in mind that in order to get an accurate reading, the air conditioner has be turned on the coldest setting with maximum blowing power. Remove the Low Pressure Side port valve cap and set it aside. The location of the port varies, but it is usually in front of the engine block. Attach the refill hose to the port on the Low Pressure Side of the air conditioning system. The Low Pressure Side port is smaller the High Pressure Side port. Because the ports are different sizes, the refill kit hose should fit only on the Low Pressure Side port. Additionally, the High Pressure Side port will usually have a red cap or be marked with an H or the word High Allow the air conditioner to **** the refrigerant out of the can by slowly turning the valve on the refill kit hose. Pay attention to the way you hold the can. Most kits will have you hold the can upright when you recharge the air conditioning system. It may take as long as 10 minutes to empty a single can. Turn the valve to the off position and remove the refill hose from the port. Recap the port before closing the hood. Let the air conditioner stay on for at least 30 minutes. This allows the refrigerant to move throughout the entire system.
Take care

FACING THE CAR, WHERE IS THE EXACT LOCATION TO ADD FREON TO A 1997 CHEVY MALIBU. WE FOUND A RED CAP BUT UNDERSTAND THIS IS NOT WHERE YOU SHOULD ADD. HELP .....


The low pressure refrigerant port is near the firewall2.gif, just after the receiver/dryer. You'll need a gauge and preferably an ac test manifold. You can use the manifold to add refrigerant up to the point where the system maintains the pressure level in the green area. There should be a blue cap on the low pressure valve.
I believe your malibu take's 12 ounce's of R134, don't over charger the system. You'll blow O rings and worst kill the A/C compressor.
Good luck and hope this helps. Here is a link for A/C recharging. http://www.geocities.com/vantaray/air_conditioning.htm

My recharging kit for air conditioner doesn't seem to fit recharge valve on 2004 dodge durango. How can I be sure i am looking at the low prerssure valve?


Newer vehicle come with R134 vs R12. Since the two are not compatible, R134 has larger fittings. AC system has two ports, High and Low. Low is return to AC Compressor and high is output. High port is first following line from compressor to condenser (condenser is at front of vehicle like a second radiator). Keep following line till you find high port (paint cap red). Second port is low (paint cap blue).

How do I recharge the AC freon on my own?


You should have R12 freon in a 1990 but you can put R134 freon into that system the only problem your going to have is the adapter for R12 is different from R134 after you get the adapter you need to put the freon in the low pressure valve not the high pressure, you will know which one because the adapter only fits the low pressure valve which is located on your AC lines under your hood, theres a little cap thats either blue or black you unscrew. You can't buy r12 anymore because its not good for enviorment so buy R134. you can buy at any parts store for like $5 to $10.

AC is not working


Sounds like the A/C system just needs to be recharged. When was the last time you had this done? Just take it in to your mechanic and he can do it for you and if that's not it for some reason, then he will be able to find the problem but most likely you need more freon added.

No Speedometer or AC


Your A/C may be low on R134, you can pick up a A/C recharge kit at Wal-Mart or Auto Zone for around $45.00 or less depending on which one you get and recharge the system you self. Do not over charge the system,  just follow the instructions. 
I believe your Grand Am takes 12 ounces of R134 so you only need one can but by two so when your A/C is low again you can recharge it again. You must have a small leak some where in the system and you can pick up a Recharge can too with stop leak.
If you need help, go to Auto Zone or Parts Source and the parts person there should be able to help you out, but try recharging the system first with the R134 with stop leak 12 ounce can.
Good luck and hope this helps.
