Question about 1998 Cadillac Eldorado
You can pick up a can of recharge at your local auto parts store. Some states do not allow for the sale of this so don't be surprised if you find this is the case.
There are many options but the one you want has NO stop leak in it and will have a hose with a fitting already attached. Sometimes there will aslo be a gauge. The fitting will only fit on the low side fitting of the car. This fitting will be on the low pressure line which is the larger diameter of the to lines. I apologize for not knowing exactly where the fitting is.
With the car running attache the can of refrigerant to the low side fitting and open the valve on the can. Eventually the A/C compressor should start to click on and off. It will take a while for the can to empty once the compressor starts to work. You can tell when it is by shaking the can. You will feel the liquid moving around when it is full and no liquid moving when it is empty. When it is empty close the valve on the can and remove the recharge fitting from the low side fiting of the car. After the can is removed you can turn off the car. DO NOT TURN OFF THE CAR WITH THE CAN OF RECHARGE ATTACHED TO THE LOW SIDE FITTING!
Some Cadillacs require a scan tool to erase the low freon trouble code before the car will turn on the a/c compressor.
