What is the location of low pressure port on a 1996 eagle vision tsi?


Usually close to the drier in the tube on the low pressure side. Drier looks like an aluminum cylinder about as big around as a soda can and twice as tall with two aluminum tubes coming out of it. The port has a screw off cap to access.

I believe I have a clogged rear expansion valve in my 99 chevrolet suburban...is this easy to resolve?


I WOULD HAVE TO SAY, NOT EASY. ORIFICE TUBE IS LOCATED ON THE REAR QUARTER PANEL INSIDE OF SUBURBAN. THE FREON NEEDS TO BE CAPTURED BY A FREON RECYCLING MACHINE. THEN THERE ARE SOME PANELS THAT NEED TO BE REMOVED TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE H.V.A.C. BOX , THIS IS WHERE YOUR HEATER CORE, EVAPORATOR CORE AND FAN BLOWER ARE HOUSED,THE SMALLER METAL FREON CONTAINS THE ORIFICE TUBE THAT NEED TO BE PULLED OUT. I WOULD STRONGLY SUGGEST TO YOU TO HAVE THE FREON PRESSURES CHECK FIRST, CAUSE WHEN THE FREON IS LOW THE REAR A./C WILL NOT WORK AS GOOD ANYMORE. PRESSURE READING SHOULD BE: LOW SIDE 35-45 P.S.I. AND ON THE HIGH PRESSURE SIDE IT SHOULD READ: 200 - 250 P.S.I.ANYTHING DIFFERENT IF BOTH PRESSURES ARE LOW, JUST ADD SOME FREON VERY SLOWLY UNTIL PRESSURES ARE WITH-IN THOSE RANGES.

I need to add freon ton a 1998 suburban. I


If the compressor will run turn it on and let it run for a few minutes, the line that gets cold is the low pressure side, this is usually the one closest to the firewall. The reason that they are 6 inches apart is that they are on opposite sides of the orfice tube, hence one is high pressure and one is low.

Where does the freon go for a 99 expedition


Hi .. I just ran into the same problem .. I have a 2000 Expedition with the 5.4L engine .. the low side port is located on the passenger side of engine compartment just below the black metal bracket that contains electrical connections right in front of the firewall... you have to reach under this and locate the low side (larger line) and feel for the connection .. it is right in front of the accumulator .. There are two heater hose that hide the port .. you have reach under these to unscrew the port cap which is black .. you'll have to do this by feel .. I have found that you can by R134A charge with dye and leak sealant helps with small leaks .. if the system takes more than two cans be usre to add refrig. oil .. hope this helps

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.

Adding freon to 98 Isuzu Amigo


You need to add the freon on the low side which is usually indicated by a blue cap. The red cap is the high side port. Never add freon using the high side port. Typically if you are buying a guage set from your local auto parts store, it will only attach to the low side service port because they are diffent types of connections. Another easy way to tell is to turn your AC on and feel the lines that the ports are attached to. The low side should be cold/cool and the high side will be hot.
