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.

      • Single Pressure Gauges for Indl., Commercial & Specialty Uses

    • 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

I am trying to put an AC recharge can into my car and can not locate the valve where the cans dispenser is to be connected to complete this...please help


Attach the end of the recharge hose to the low side pressure port on the passenger's side of the engine compartment, near the firewall. Look for the metal coolant lines and follow the lines to locate the low side pressure port. The port is usually covered by a plastic cap. Screw the discharge end of the recharge hose -- the end without the handle/valve -- to the pressure port.
  • Screw the valve end of the recharge hose onto the top of the can of refrigerant. Turn the handle clockwise to pierce the top of the can of refrigerant. Turn the handle counterclockwise to allow the refrigerant to flow into the hose.
  • Start the Cutlass. Turn on the air conditioning to the maximum setting.
  • Turn the can of refrigerant upside down and gently swirl the can. This moves the refrigerant from the can to the hose and into the air conditioning system.
  • Insert a thermometer into the interior of the center air vent and test the temperature of the air coming from the duct. It should be approximately 35 degrees colder than the ambient air temperature.
  • Add more coolant if necessary. If you are using 12-ounce cans, unscrew the first can and screw the hose onto the second can. Turn the handle clockwise to pierce the top of the can, then turn it counterclockwise to allow the refrigerant to flow into the hose. Do not add more than 24 ounces to the system. Take your Cutlass to a service center if you have added more than 24 ounces to the system and there is no difference in the temperature.
  • Turn off the engine of the Cutlass.
  • Turn the handle on the recharge hose clockwise to seal the can of refrigerant of it is not empty. If it is empty, unscrew the can from the hose. Unscrew the discharge end of the hose from the low side pressure port. Place the colored cap over the pressure port.

We bought the 2004 envoy used and the air conditioner doesn't blow cold air like most hope for including my family. We are moving back to Florida at the end of the month and hope to have our air...


Your best bet is to take it to a repair shop that does air conditioning and they may need to add freon and possibly some dye to determine if there is a leak. You can purchase a kit to add the freon yourself but these systems require a certain amount and over charging the system can also cause problems.

The Low Pressure Side connector will be smaller than the High Pressure Side connector so the refill hose will fit properly only on the Low Pressure Side.

How can i refill the air conditioning in my 2001 hyundai sonata


You can buy a recharge kit at your local parts store. The kit comes with a pressure gauge to let you know when the coolant level is good, over charged, or low. The kit cost about $25. With the kit hook up, it can't be hooked up wrong with the high and low pressure ends. You will be able to use this over and over, just buy new cans when you need to refill.

How do you recharge the air conditioning system for a 97 cadillac


Just get an R134a recharge kit, and follow the instructions.

The kit contains canisters of oil and R134a and a hose with a gauge on it.

Add about 2 or 3 cans of refrigerant on a system where the refrigerant leaked out.

One may also want to add leak sealer. which comes in a can like the pure 134a.

Would like to recharge my air conditioning on my 2001 nissian maxima that has 117,000 on it blows hot air when air conditioning is turned on.


You will need R134a, and a filler hose. Charge the system on the low pressure side, it should have a blue cap on the charge point.
Your filler hose will only fit the low pressure side, just in case the cap has been removed.
