If you are gonna charge Freon, you are looking for the LOW SIDE pressure valve. Most of the time its located on the low pressure hose or the evaporator itself.Look for a HUGE black cap most of the time its that color your freon can if it came with a hose attached will only fit the low side connection.

I cannot find the place to put r134a in my 1998 Chevy malibu ls


Follow the Accumulator (round silver cylinder) low pressure hose to the fire wall. You will find the low pressure service port valve just before the fire wall.

Make sure you don't over charge the system, add small amount at a time and check the temperature every 3 min to 5 min by placing the A/C on max with the engine at 2000 RPM.

Once the temperature coming out of the vents are cold as ice with the engine at 2000 RPM. stop charging. So turn the recharge valve on for 20 seconds and then off then rev the engine to 2000 RPM for 3 min and check the temperature at the vent.

Once the temperature is ice cold, stop and don't over charge the system. Over charging the system will cause the A/C compressor to shut down and at worst break, causing a $500.00 repair cost.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

Low-pressure port I need identification


Basic AC system consists of Compressor pump (on engine), Condenser (front grill with radiator) and Evaporator (Firewall). Pump has two ports output (high pressure) and return (low pressure). Follow lines from pump. High side is usually between pump and condenser. Follow lines and find second port this will be low side (refill) port. Paint or replace port caps (red high, blue low). Also, refrigerant in system determines port size (R12 or R34).

AC has stopped blowing cold air. Compressor is working. Where is the recharge valve located?


There are two A/C refrigerant lines. The small line is your high pressure line and the larger line is your low pressure line.
Start at the fire wall and follow the "large " low pressure line to the compressor. The low pressure charge port will be some where on that line.
DO NOT try to recharge on the high pressure side ( small line )
Good luck, let me know.
