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

To do this correct you would need gauge to see the preasure readings,most people just by a hose and freon and fill away,sometimes they get cold air but overcharging and under charging the system causes problems. you may have cold air for a while but compressor failure is around the corner, you would first have to check to see if the system is low, then add oil if needed and dye to find the leak, also make sure theres power to the ac system. if its low there will be power to one side of cycling switch,but good be a bad switch also but without gauges you will be guessing,have a shop check it.

I want to recharge my AC unit. Not sure where the refrigerant is supposed to go


You connect your refill can or system to the low pressure line. Here is the good news. The fitting on the refill kit will only fit the low pressure line connector. They appear as over sized Air fitting. Both High and Low pressure sides will have plastic caps on them but your coupling will only connect to the low pressure side.

Airconditioner stop working


Most common cause is that your A/C system is low on R134a and needs to be recharged. All A/C system has small leaks through O ring's ect. Once the pressure is to low in the system, the clutch will not operate to keep it from burning out. The R134a is mixed with compressor oil to keep the compressor cooled and from seizing up. You can buy a recharge kit with the gauge at Auto Zone or Wal mart for just under $50.00, That includes two cans of R134a and the hose with the gauge, just follow the instruction. If the A/C works after recharging and stop's working again within 2 weeks then there is a large leak that needs to be addressed before the next refill. Good luck and hope this helps, before you go through all that check the fuses. good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

2006 ford focus airconditioner couldn't cool contineously


Sounds like it needs a coolant recharge. Many parts shops in the US will sell DIY AirCon recharge kits. Check the DIY sites, but basically, you can do this recharge without opening the hood-I believe the high-pressure connection is in the left side front wheel well.

Airconditioner suddenly stopped blowing cold air while I was driving--blows warm air now


you can get a recharge kit at Auto Zone, the car has to be runnung to fill it. . This is the first thing I would do, to see if it's out of freeon first.

Ask the Auto zone man to come out side and help you refill it. They will help if you ask.
