Blowing out hot air in my air conditioner for saturn L300 2005


I know how to do this personally, but instead of writing it up, here is a link to someone else's write up.... https://www.yourmechanic.com/article/how-to-recharge-the-air-conditioning-in-your-car

One thing to keep in mind... If you try this and the gauge reads zero, re-check your connections. And if it still reads zero, you may have a leak in the system. Don't waste your time and $$ by trying to use the kit. You can either try the UV leak detector kit and proceed accordingly, or take your rig to a shop and let them know that you think that there is a leak.

You can find the recharge kits in almost any auto parts store. And no, I don't have a preference on brands. I think the differences will be barely perceptible so I have never compared them. So, you don't necessarily need the most expensive. In fact, I just did a quick search for a kit comparison on the web and I didn't immediately find one.

I have remnants of 2 different brands from 2 different car recharges. Jeep vs Civic = dragon fruit vs cherries. No comparison. But, both kits worked appropriately in either vehicle for years on one recharge.

Good luck!!

I have a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire and am looking for where you would top up the regrigerant. Bought a kit and where I think I should fill it the nozzle does not fit.


There is a high pressure side and a low pressure side on your refirgirant line the fittings are different sizes because it is very dangerous if you hook up to the wrong side of the line. Make sure you read the directions on the recharge kit and follow them precisely. The high pressure side fitting should have a red cap and the low pressure side should have a blue cap. You will need to hook the charge kit to the LOW pressure side to recharge.

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

Where is the low pressure valve for the recharging the air conditioner on a 97 Olds Bravada?


it is located between the compressor and the accumulator. the quick disconnect valve is smaller than the high pressure valve so you can't make a mistake using the single recharging hose.

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.

Air conditioner not blowing cold air


go to a parts store such as Advance Auto Parts or Auto Zone and buy the A/C recharging kit they have with the rubber line and connector that connects only on the side that you need to recharge your system. If you can put air in your tires you can out freon in your a/c system.

The air conditioner blows hot air. Can I buy a kit to recharge it? If so, where and how much are they? Thank you.


It depends on the type of freonyou use. If it is R134a then yes you can buy a kit and recharge it. ost recent cars use this type o freon. check your manual. Or, when you go to any parts store jsut ask them to look it up and they can tell you what it takes.

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.

Recharging the air conditioner


With aftermarket kits, you can't screw it up. The fittings are two different sizes so you can only hook it up one way. They sell new kits that have gauges built onto them to show you when to stop putting freon in. That should prevent you from overfilling.
