It is either under the filter box,where the air cleaner goes,or next to the firewall next to the passengers side fender,look at the ac lines coming from the ac compressor,and follow them,look at the large ac line coming from the ac compressor,to the firewall,it will be on that line,and your single charge hose,will only fit the low side service port,so you can not hook up to the wrong one,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Where is the cap to recharge the ac for my 2008 chevy Malibu LTZ 6 cylinder


First pop the engine cover off. You are looking for a small cap with an "L" on it. This stands for Low Pressure. Most of the time they are blue. Avoid the "H" (High Pressure). The lines are typically silver in color.

You found the high side port. The other line should have the low side and if it is not on there it might be at the AC evaporator which is a cylinder shape made of aluminum. The cap will have a L on it not a H. Do not force it on the high side.

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
