You need to refill from the low side service valve. Its usually on the left hand side and has a blue cap. This is a complecated proccess that takes special tools, if the system is completely empty. If its completely empty you need to vacuum down with a vaccum pump. You can rent from autozone.

not sure what you mean by refill cylinder, but there are two ports to charge a a/c system, low side and high side, you fill on the low side, if you are using a can you bought from wal mart or a auto parts store than most come with a small hose that connects from the can to the port, you cannot mess it up, the hose will only connect to the low side port, the high and low side ports are two different sizes, one is located on top of the engine by the suge tank area, the other is located/accessed from under the front right of the car, look for a big hose coming from the a/c compressor and just follow it till you find the port, the big hose is your low side hose.

SOURCE: cant find the valve to

Servicing Port will be located along the low / suction hose of A/C between the compressor and condenser. The larger hose is the low side.

Its easiest to follow the larger hose from the compressor to the condenser to find it.

Some models even have the port mounted to the compressor or condenser.

Hope this helps...

Where is the low side valve located in a 2009 Volkswagen Routan for the air conditioning

It's the larger aluminum tube with a spigot on it. Should be near the firewall but with transverse mounted engine it could be anywhere....look for the larger aluminum tube and hook up a/c refill there. Be sure to start engine and turn a/c on with high fan and lowest temp BEFORE hooking up the a/c refill valve. Its a MUST.

I have cans of 134a to refill the ac on a 1987 ford f150 where are ports or valves

I believe the recharging of air conditioning needs the appropriate tool. You may not be able to recharge the system yourself.
Also, be very careful, you can be blinded if an attempted refill goes wrong. I am aeare of a few cases.

Ac drainline 2002 toyota camry

Hi Andreas, The valves for evacuation and refilling the ac are the same. To drain the system an evacuation pump should be connected to the low pressure and high pressure valves. The valves are situated in the engine compartment, the high pressure has a red valve cover and the low pressure black. You will easily find the valves by looking along the air conditioning plumbing.

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

How can i refill the air conditioning in my 2001 hyundai sonata

You can buy a recharge kit at your local parts store. The kit comes with a pressure gauge to let you know when the coolant level is good, over charged, or low. The kit cost about $25. With the kit hook up, it can't be hooked up wrong with the high and low pressure ends. You will be able to use this over and over, just buy new cans when you need to refill.

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.
