    the correct amount of freon is never listed on the receiver/dryer or accumulator on a ford product it is either on the underside of hood or radiator support area also ford hadn,t used colored caps in a while they are both black low side is the smaller one and the only sure fire way to know if you have correct amount of freon is to evacuate the system completely and recharge with correct amount I know a 2003 expedition with rear a/c holds 54oz. of r-134 just charged a system on one hour ago after replacing compressor,dryer and orfice tube/expansion valve..

Low side is smaller and located near the reciever/drier, the high side port is bigger and located near the compressor or condensor. These will be blue cap on low side, red cap on high side port and always install freon on the low (blue) side only. Look on the reciever/drier and see how many ounces the system holds and don't go over that. If you suspect a leak in the system, it's ok to install about 2 ounces of dye but no more because you might get a compressor hammer with the extra oil. If there is any problems, sprewing freon, RUN! This freon will **** the oxygen out of your lungs and you can't breath. Good luck and be very careful, if you do eveything right, you will have a cold AC, Gary

Trying to recharge ac on 1995 chevy surburban k1500. Compressor will not kick in. How do i hot wire the compressor - so i can attempt to recharge the ac?


Find the low pressure switch it should be on the same line that you are attempting to do the charge. Remove its connector and place a wire or paper clip across the contacts, this will allow the compessor to run. Make sure you monitor the low side pressure while charging.

2004 Tbird blowing hot air on passenger side and cold air on driver side when same temp is called for on control panel(68degF)


From reading an extensive list of people with this problem it can be many things. You may need to have the AC system recharged. There is a recharge post on the passenger side and on the driver side. One of the valves necessary for recharging is right up front on the passenger side. The other recepticle is under the car midway on the drivers side. One thing you should try before assuming this is to cycle the temp. control to maximum and minimum. This may help get the system working again. If not you may need to take it to a service technician that is A/C certified to help you out. If you have further questions or concerns please let me know thanks, Midwest-tek

Car won't start. Replaced battery. worked 3 days. They said it was the alternator. REplaced with new. worked another 4 days. had it check with advance auto said battery good, starter cranking normal....


if there is no charging then its back to the alternator or the way its hooked up? did you recharge your flat battery with a mains charger after it went flat the first time? as no alternator will charge a battery from flat to fully charged,,,,even if you drove around the world none stop! the new alternator may have given up working becouse you overloaded the voltage regulator trying to recharge a flat battery witch would mean it was very week to start with?

All the refrigerant and compressor oil blew out the front of my '92 300zx twin turbo while trying to re-charge the a/c with a diy kit. I noticed the leak was coming from the front of the car just behind...


For starters that's not the sending unit it's the compressor and you have blown out the front seal. Your going to need to replace the compressor and when charging the system be sure to monitor the pressures from both discharge and suction side. This is very important because when the discharge pressure gets too high it blows out the front compressor seal. Hope this helps. Good luck.

How to recharge a.c. unit 99 kia sephia


Yes you can recharge it yourself. You have to charge on the low pressure side. Your filler hose will only fit the low pressure side. Follow your hoses until you see a cap (usually blue on the low pressure side) and that will be your charge point.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Try grounding the LOW PRESSURE A/C SWITCH by the compressor, while trying to recharge. This will energize the compressor. Hope this helps.
