The low pressure side of the r134a system is always located on the thicker pipes vs. the thinner pipes leading away from the compressor.

So, just followi the larger diameter piping from the compressor until you come to a quick connect fitting that attaches to the hose quick connector that is attached to a can of r134a.

The pressure reading should be 25 psi to 45 psi on the low side when the compressor is turning and the a/c is on.

If it's higher than this, the compressor may not be turning, and the normal non turning psi is 75psi to 100 psi or so on a hot day.

I tried to put Freion in my Buick Lasabre but the hose won't fit on the Port. What is wrong?

Hello: If your system has R-134 then you need a 134 hose assembly to service it. You service the system on the low side (large line) the service port will be on the large line or the accumulator.

2005 GMC Sierra,4x4,5.3 flex fuel "z"code Just serviced system. Added 2 lbs 134a. still will not get below 66deg. with doors open a/c set to 60 on both sides and fan on full. Temp outside, 88....

Sounds as though ther could be too much 134 in system. I would try vacuuming system and charging again to be certain how much was in system. If you have already done this I would check for clogged orafice or obstruction. Pressures are definitely too high.

Where to self charge a/c unit?

Before attempting this make SURE your vehicle is running R-134 coolant. If it is running R-12, you will have to have this done by a professional. DO NOT attempt to mix R-12 and R-134 coolants, as this mix will become volatile and could possibly explode and cause massive system damage. You can find out what type you are running by looking for a ( usually yellow) decal on top of the A/C compressor or on top of the air accumulator ( the silver soda can looking thing.) Once you confirm you are running R-134, trace your A/C lines back from the compressor until you find two nipples, one large and one small. The large one is your "low side." This is where you will attach the recharge kit to service your system. The recharge kits are designed to only fit on the low side, so you won't have to worry much about confusing the two. Hope this helps you out. Have a good day!

Where is the low side ac conection on a 2001 altima located. I found one conection but not sure witch it is. when I conected the 134 refill can, the little gauge on top went to the red high pressure...

If you are getting a high reading then you have a problem with the system. Only other thing is make sure you have the valve turned off, The gauge and R-134 connected and then slowly turn the gauge handle. Sometime these will give you a high reading if it wasn't hooked up correct. The system was modified so the gauge will fit on the low pressure side. Good Luck.

Where is the 1993 dodge dakota low side ac valve location, 318 v8......

Hello chopspage
I will assume that the a/c system has been changed over from R-12 to
R-134, if not, it needs to be done before going any further.
That said the low side service port is located on the compressor head or
on the suction line from the comp. head. With the R-134 system installed correctly the charge line will only fit the low side as the hi side
has a larger fitting. Hope this helps.

Need to recharge the ac system. I see there are two ports within the system. Which is the proper one to recharge my system? 1994 gmc sirra pickup k1500 with 350 motor

if you truck has r-12 you need to convert to r-134
if you truck has been converted to r-134 the small port on the low pressure side is the port to use..
the truck must be in a warm aera about 80 degrees
then hook up the hose or gauges on to low side
start the truck and turn the air on (putting it on high cool and high blower open the can of freon and as the compressure in the truck starts to draw the gas in rock the can from side to side .. if the gas is going in the can will get cold
