Question about 1995 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I need to add refrigerant to my 95 Camry? I have a can of R134a with a hose and connector, but it says it must be attached to the low pressure side. I see a fitting by the dryer (I think that is what it is called) that has a sight glass on it, but the fitting does not work. An AC service guy said 95 Toyotas were using R134. Is there a low pressure port someplace else that I can use? Do I need R12 instead of R134?

I think it is r-i34.the way you can find out is when you open the hood,read the stickers that are on the underside of the should tell you there if it is 134 or r-12.if it's r-134.the low pressure hose usually has a blue cap on it and anyways you can't connect the hose to any other fitting because it will only fit on the low side valve.the valve should be located on the passenger side,right by the fire wall,in back of the strut tower.just look for the blue cap.if the cap is not on it,well like i said,you can't mix it up cause it only fits on the low side valve anyways.i hope this information helps you.good luck and take care, manny

    After looking at your advice, I looked in the exact spot, and mine had an "L" on the cap. Your advice was perfect. It's blowing nice and cold now! Thanks!

How and where to add freon to a1995 sedan deville

Verify ambient temperature is above 65 degrees F.

1. Safety> - safety glasses, long sleeves and gloves, (exposure to refrigerant can cause frostbite).

2. Attach hoses to manifold> assembly, (hi, lo, and fill).

3. Remove caps from service ports, (Low press. Larger tube from evaporator to accumulator - passenger side over fender well; High Pressure - smaller tube from evaporator along firewall towards driver's side). Verify service> ports are clean.

4. Attach low press. and high press hoses to proper service ports.

5. Start car>, reset low refrig code, and turn ac on high and fan on high.

6. Read gauges and compare with chart provided with gauge set.

7. If low and high press readings are both low, then system needs recharge.

8. To recharge, attach fill hose to can of R134a and slowly open low press valve>, (NOT HIGH PRESS VALVE), until low press side reads 40 psi.

9. When flow stops and pressures stabilize close valves> and disconnect manifold from service ports and refrigerant can. Replace service port caps.

Air conditiner not working

First, check for sufficient pressure of refrigerant in the system.
Determine if you have R12 (screw on connector on low side) or R134a(quick connector on low side).

When you turn the a/c on (and the car is running) does the fan start blowing on the radiator? If not, then the system may have a blown fuse or be low on refrigerant or deactivated in some other manner.

There are R134a retrofit kits where you can add adapters to an older R-12 system, add the proper oil for conversion, and get it to work with the newer refrigerant. Also, many of these kits have an antileak sealant that can prevent refrigerant from leaking out of seals so fast.

On a car that old, I wouldn't be surprised if the refrigerant all leaked out.

Good luck on this repair.

Where is low side of a/c system to cahrge with 134

The low pressure side of the r134a system is always located on the thicker pipes vs. the thinner pipes leading away from the compressor.

So, just followi the larger diameter piping from the compressor until you come to a quick connect fitting that attaches to the hose quick connector that is attached to a can of r134a.

The pressure reading should be 25 psi to 45 psi on the low side when the compressor is turning and the a/c is on.

If it's higher than this, the compressor may not be turning, and the normal non turning psi is 75psi to 100 psi or so on a hot day.

How do we put freon in the air conditioner?

Get an R134A refrigerant charge kit from Walmart or your local parts store, and add it to the 'thick' tubing side of the a/c system (that's the low pressure side).

There is a quick connector on the piping or on the canister looking accumulator.

One can get a large can of r134a that has a hose and gauge attached for $32 or so.

Im looking for the low pressure port on a 96 ford taurus ?????

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.

Freon and connector for 1986 buick lesabre

there are two hoses coming out of the firewall side by side .. one is large and one is small ... they both have valve ports but only the large tube (low pressure side) is to be used for adding refrigerant .. if your connector from the R134a can does not fit ..then you probably have the older R12 system .. that has been outlawed now because of ozone layer destruction caused by it cant get that anymore .. you can however convert your system to R134a but it involves washing out the entire system and replacing all rubber parts ..then attaching adapters so the R134a will connect (availible auto parts) .. by law any remaining R12 in your system has to be recovered, not vented to air .. (actually the r12 is worth a fortune right now but it may not be legal to sell ..its about a 25 times increase) ... the modification process requires a "certified" tech to do the work and the results wont be quite as good as the old r12 ... at least it will work if the system is cleaned out enough .. the two refrigerants dont like each other .. that is, the lubes that are used do nasty things when mixed .. if you wanted to you could become "certified" by attending some classes and passing a test on ozone layer depletion ... now they have discovered that r134a is a powerfull green house gas .. so that also will be phased out in the future .. its like 1600 times worse than CO2 ... r12 was a wonderful chemical .. very hard to beat its performance and stability .. .
