First, raise car with jack behind front tire. remove the 3 screws that hold the black plastic fenderwell cover. when the screws are out, pull down on front part of plastic fenderwell. this will expose the ac accumulator. the recharge fitting is on very top of accumulator. remove valve cap and hook up recharge kit, follow directions that came with kit. when done replace valve cover, inner fenderwell, and your done.

Where is the port to add freon on a 2001 alero


ON THE LOWSIDE OF AIR SYSTEM.LOOK UNDER THE HOOD,MAYBE PASSNGERS SIDE AND REMOVE A VALVE STEM,LOOKS LIKE VALVE STEM ON TIRES TO ADD AIR.IT WILL HAVE A BLACK SCREW OFF CAP NEXT TO THE A/C DRYER OR DEPENDING ON THE ENGINE SIZE.SUGGEST YOU FOLLOW THE A/C LINES FROM COMPRESSOR TO THE DRYER,THE SMALLEST PORT WILL BE THE LOW SIDE THAT ALLOWS FREEON TO GO IN,BUT! I SUGGEST THAT IF YOU HAVE NEVER INSTALLED FREEON,PLEASE DO NOT ATTAEMPT AS YOU MAY BLOW A COMPRESSOR SEAL WHICH CAN COST AS MUCH AS A $1000.00 FOR PARTS ONLY! IT'S WORTH INVESTING $50.00 FOR LABOR AND $75.00 IN PARTS VERSUS THE OTHER RIGHT? RESEARCH,RESEARCH

Where do you put the freon


freon is added to the low pressure side. The adaptor will only fit this connection, the high pressure connection is a larger connector. You shouldn't just add freon without checking the high pressure side - you can still overpressurize the system, and this will cause your compressor to kick-off on high pressure.

Where is the low pressure port on the air conditioner so we can add freon


You add the freon into the aluminum line with the black cap on it closest to the belt system.That is where the evaporator and compressor are.Remove the cap.If you try the wrong side it will not hurt the system,it just will not accept the freon.With the engine running and the a/c on,add the freon at one quarter can intervals and check the a/c.When it is cold enough stop.Overpressurizing the system can cause damage $$$.Good luck!

So i can have air where to put freon in for air


If it has the 3.4 V6 in it, then the low side where you add the freon is on the passager side behind the motor.

My ac blow out hot air and i want to put freon in my self and want to know how


Adding freon will not correct the problem. If you need to add freon, you have a leak, and you have moisture in the system, the leak should be located, mositure removed, then freon added. But to answer your question. Open the hood on, the left side you will see a round object called a dryer, you will see two pipes coming from it, one at the top and one at the bottom. The smaller is the high side, the larger is the low side. Obtain a can of freon either R-22 or 134a with an adapter for installing the freon. Turn the engine on, turn the AC to high. Add the freon to the ac using the low side.

How do I fill air conditioner coolant.compressor is new, but I need to add coolant.


You need to evacuate mositure with a vacuum pump and then add a can of r134a with oil in the can. Then add more cans without oil. Up to the amount on the decal under the hood.
The low side charge port is behind the passenger fender well. Remove tire and the 7 fasteners holding the plastic fender liner in.

I have a 2004 ford focus, and i need to add freon. But, the owners manual doesn't say where to add it. I even looked, and there isnt anything obvious under the hood like the blue cap on my cavalier. Can...


This is really a fix for a shop, but what you are looking for is a fitting that looks like the air valve on a tire... but be careful, there is also a similar fitting on your fuel rail. The fitting you are looking for should be on the A/C line near your condenser (looks like another radiator) or near the dryer (which looks like a tall can).
