Oh, that's an easy one. The low pressure side is made up of larger diameter tubing than the high pressure side (aluminum tubing) that holds the refrigerant.

Also, the low pressure side always gets cold when working properly with the a/c on. The cold low pressure side piping will develop condensation on a hot day.

Sometimes the low pressure port is located on a post that sticks up and has a blue or black cap on it, similar to schrader valve but different.

The quick connector connects to the hose found in an r134a kit that may have a 12 oz. can of r134a for bumping up the amount of freon in your system (sometimes cars leak this gas slowly through o-rings).

Good luck to you on this.

Where is the low pressure port ?


That port would be located at the rear of the passenger side fender well under the hood. It's kind of against the firewall. Be carefull of moving parts as the front of the engine is right there. Good luck

Bought some 134a freon can not find low pressure valve to charge the system please help!


Hi, the low pressure port is along the line that goes from the firewall to the compressor. It may be on the dryer, if there is a dryer on that line. The port usually has a black cap screwed onto it. I will look for a picture. Do you have the 3.0 engine?

Look at the colored pressure caps on your A/C lines. One is labeled with a H and the other with an L. The L is the low pressure side. Should be the smaller of the two

1995 ford taurus how do I charge freon myself and


mcdevito75 here, I have a 96" and yes you can charge the A/C yourself and you can use the 134A, the Charge port is on 1 of the metal lines comming out the firewall mine is on the metal line just about 6--7 inches from the firewall, the kit you buy for recharge will only fit this low side port, also follow the cans directions very carefully. there may be a screw down cap on this port simply unscrew this cap, port will look similar to the air valve on your tires.

The AC charge port is the on low pressure AC line (large line from compressor) near the firewall. Take care not to overcharge, there are other causes of no cooling like a stuck AC compressor cycling switch or a air temp control blend door motor malfunction, what is the issue u have? does the AC compressor run?
