Obviously, they failed to diagnose, what was leaking first,before recovering the refrigerant
Then failed to wait,after pulling a vacuum,to see if the system held
Sloppy work,period. Never had that happen to me, in 47 years.
Now you got to spend, about as much, to start over

Where is the intake port for freon in 2000 ford expedition

The AC is charged with R134 refrigerant through the low pressure side of the system, the charging port is on the Accumulator/Receiver Dryer, this is a round canister under the hood on the drivers side near the rear of the engine bay. Below is a picture of the Accumulator so you can ID it.

Where is the freon refill located at in the ford 2000 expedition?

hi, the freon refill point you are looking for is on the accumulator. but you can't see it cause it's buried by the heater hoses, battery cables, and firewall mounted fuseblock. remove the fuse block cover, and get a bright flashlight, look just below the fuse block and you will see the cylindrical accumulator(aluminum canister looking) and the low side pressure port with the plastic cap on it.

The low side port is on the side of the accumulator/dryer. The arrow is pointing to a hose connection, but to the right of that connection is the low side pressure port.

How do youo put freon in 99 ford expedition

Find your evaporator canister which will be toward the firewall. The low port is hard to see. You will need to buy yourself a re-fill kit which comes with the freon and gauge. Warm the engine and turn air cond. on. Attach the hose to your low port. Attach the can to the hose and turn the needle to pierce the top of the can. Be sure to turn the valve needle slowly to release the freon into the system. If the can starts to frost over, wrap a warm cloth around can to get the freon to flow easier. The kit will come with a gauge which will tell you if the system is already overcharged with problems or if the system needs freon. The one I have has yellow, blue, green, and red. The yellow is low, blue is good but the system could still use more depending on the psi, green is overcharged, and red is over charged with system problems, or other system problem.

Help with accumulator question.

The accumulator is 17 years old, therefore it would be smart to replace it while the A/C compressor
is being replaced. There are no special steps for removal or replacement of the accumulator just
be sure all the fittings are tight.
