Question about 2006 Chrysler Town & Country
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.

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.
