I just recharged my 99 Expedition 4.6 L today.
Open hood and stand facing engine, look to left and 1st see the WW washer fill then the battery then at a 45 degree angle look to the firewall where you see a black cover just below the red and black battery cables going in and out of the solenoid. Underneath and behind is the Accumulator. On the side of this silver canister there is a hose coming out of the Accumulator and just to the right of it is a black cap over the Low side 13MM AC fitting. The cap does unscrew but the fitting takes a quick disconnect coupler fitting.
I found it helpful to search a parts outlet on the web and print a picture of an Accumulator for the Expedition. I was able to accomplish recharge with everything in place but next time it is likely I'll unscrew the two fasteners holding the wire assembly to the fire wall and move out of the way.
Best Wishes.

Follow the lines until you find them. There should be two, one near the compressor or condenser (high side), and one near the evaporator (low side).

You just need a recharge.Go to an auto parts store and get a single can of R12 and the recharge line.Find the fitting on the AC line that the recharge line fits on(there's 2 but only fits 1)and hook the end on the can then on the fitting.THEN screw the puncture screw into the can lid to puncture the top of can,then turn that screw back out to release the Freon into the line and into system.To be sure you get all the Freon out of the can,stick the can in a small bucket of hot water while it's recharging your system.That's an old timers trick I use and it works.Once empty,remove the line from the fitting on the system first,remove the can from the line and save the recharge line.Ya may need it again one day.Engine must be running with AC on full when recharging the system.Stay Cool dude.

Mazda6 ac recharge valves


the correct one should be smaller, and your recharge hose should be only able to connect to it. the smaller fitting is the low side, and the larger fitting is the high side. recharge only to the low side. the high side is used by technicians with elaborate ac manifold guages to monitor success. these guage kits can be bought at harbor freight for about 55 dollars,and give a better recharge,as you can regulate pressure as not to overfill, which lessens the cooling

Please show me the line where I recharge the freon on 96 geo metro. I can't find the low side


Typically the fitting on the recharge kit will only fit on the low-side line. Here is a good website that explains the recharge process:

I have an 1989 Lincoln Continental, VIN- 1NLNM9846KY688373. I purchased a R12 recharge kit from Auto Zone but the one fitting I see that is over the compressor (pointing up) is narrower than that fitting...


You can not buy R12 for the past 15 years or more
without a licence

You bought R134--no good,can't fix the two.

Never give out your VIN # to anyone,better off to put
tape over it, so you lessen the chances of it being stolen

Need to charge airconditioning system, and the recharging kit doesn't fit on.... how and what do you use to recharge on 5.7 L engine, 1997 1500 4x4 chev pick up


the recharge kit will only fit on the low side fitting which is the smaller fitting on the larger lines/hoses. If it doesn't fit on the fitting you have tried than you are probably trying to put it on the high side fitting which is the larger fitting on the smaller lines/hoses. I think the low side fitting is on the receiver drier on this model which is the canister looking thing back by the passenger side of the firewall.

Need to recharge the a/c in a 2007 Saturn Vue. Where can I find a diagram that shows the different hoses and lines? Or which hose or line do I use for the Freon?


you always recharge on the low side. The low side is the larger lines/hoses. the high side is the smaller lines/hoses. The low side fitting on the a/c system is smaller than the high side fitting. this is so that the low side and high side can not be hooked backwards accidentally. The fitting on your can of recharge will only fit the low side fitting on the a/c system.

To find the low side fitting on your a/c system to recharge it simple follow the low side line/hoses (the larger ones) until you see the fitting which usually has a plastic cap over it. Follow the instruction on the can of recharge and you should be good to go.

If you have any other questions I'd be more than happy to answer them.

Where is the low pressure a/c port on a 2002 jeep laredo for recharging a/c


This job requires special tools and special training. If you lack either, you risk SERIOUS personal injury. Injury comes VERY EASILY!

You need to address oil levels, proper and legal refrigerant recovery, system evacuation, and recharge.

You were planning to also replace the receiver/dryer, correct? It also needs the oil in it measured and incorporated into the amount of oil (in %) that would need to be added. FAILURE to address these and other issues will guarantee premature system failure and likely compressor damage.

Take this job to a qualified shop.
