SOURCE: Air conditioning

Should be near the accumulator on the passenger side firewall. The accumulator is the thing that looks like a canister with a clamp around it. It holds the liquid freon for the a/c system and has a blue cap with an L on it.

SOURCE: I cannot differentiate between the low pressure and high pressure

This is a little A/C 101. Follow the A/C lines. All A/C systems have a high pressure side and a low pressure side. The high pressure side is from the compressor to the condenser coil on the front of the vehicle to the evaporator coil in the dash. At the expansion valve in the evaporator the pressure drops. At the expansion valve the refrigerant changes from a liquid to a gas. This provides the cooling. The low pressure side is from the evaporator back to the compressor. Usually the high pressure lines are smaller than the low pressure (suction) lines.

SOURCE: air conditioning port cant find it to recharge,

If you reach up under the fender on the front passengers side in front of the front wheel, you will feel the reciever dryer(accumulator) assembly. The low side a/c port is located there(not the best place to have it in my opinion). The high side port is located where the front grill meets the upper radiator support.
I hope this helps you out. And also if you are looking for a leak, check the snout seal located under the outer clutch disc. Remove the compressor clutch disc and check for leakage. The compressor bodies themselves were also known for leaking.
Good luck

I am trying to locate the correct port to use to recharge my air conditioning system?


The port in the larger of the 2 AC lines from the compressor is the port you charge at.

Recharge the air conditioner


Instructions
    • 1Start the recharging process with any left over freon you may still have. Open the Civic's hood and attach the kit to the Civic's low side port. Then, set the kit onto a place in the engine compartment where nothing can move or shift once the engine has been cranked.
    • 2Start the Civic and let the engine run until it reaches its normal operational temperature.

    • 3Turn on the air conditioning to its coldest and hardest-blowing settings. Place a thermometer into one of the Civic's air conditioning vents and monitor how the temperature drops. Once the air conditioning's temperature reaches a level, constant degree, remove the thermometer.
    • 4Open all four doors on the Civic. This will allow any colder air generated to escape, and this will keep the Civic's air conditioning for accidentally cycling off while you recharge the refrigerant levels.
    • 5Turn the recharging kit's valve all the way down and let the refrigerant charge into the Civic's air conditioning periodically, shut the valve and look at the kit's gauge. This will allow you to monitor the recharging process. Allow at least one minute to elapse between refrigerant charges into the system.
    • 6Shut the valve of the canister, once it has become depleted. Disconnect the kit from the low side port.
    • 7Detach the hose, gauge, and valve from the empty canister and attach them to a new canister of refrigerant. Reattach the kit's hose to the Civic's low side port and continue recharging the system, allowing a minute between individual charges. The can itself can potentially grow very cold and hard to hold, even with gloves. Should this happen, wrap the can in a towel warmed in water. Ring out excess water before wrapping the canister.
    • 8Place you thermometer into one of the Civic's air conditioning ducts. Keep an eye on the falling temperature within the Civic's air conditioning system. The system is charged when the temperature hits 40 degrees. Also, within the engine compartment, the Civic's air conditioning aluminum tubing become uniformly cold.
    • 9Shut the recharging kit's valve and remove the kit from the low side port, once the system has been successfully recharged. Shut down the Civic's air conditioning, turn the engine off, and remove your key from the Civic's ignition. Also, shut all the doors

How to recharge recharge airconditioner


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

I need to recharge my air condition on 2006 town & country van. Where is the low side located?


UNLESS YOU HAVE A MACHINE TO RECHARGE THE A/C THEN DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PLAY WITH A VERY DANGEROUS SYSYEM. This is a specialised piece of kit and without the right machine to do the job you could end up with serious injuries

AC is not working


Sounds like the A/C system just needs to be recharged. When was the last time you had this done? Just take it in to your mechanic and he can do it for you and if that's not it for some reason, then he will be able to find the problem but most likely you need more freon added.

The low side port is on a quart sized container just in front of the passenger side front tire. It is easier to access if you remove the front tire and the inner skirt.
