Question about 2002 Suzuki Vitara
I would like to be able to save some money an add freon to my 2002 Suzuki Vitara..I 'm having trouble finding out where to put it. I'm looked in the owners manuel and it tells me nothing....only the type of freon to use.....Please Help!!
There are two A/C service ports located somewhere in the system, one on the high side (larger port) and one on the low side (smaller port)
They are located in different areas depending on the vehicle, and there is no general location I can give you.
Start from the compressor (belt driven on the engine) and follow your lines, they should be somewhere on the A/C lines or accumulator/dryer (big aluminum canister near the firewall) and are (usually, if they were not left off) capped. Twist the caps off and inside is a "Schrader-type" valve (like the valves on tires). These are the service ports.
Just for reference, there are 2 different sizes of A/C lines on any vehicle, the small ones are the high pressure side (liquid side)(lines which get hot during operation) and the larger ones are low pressure side (vapor side) (lines which get cold during operation).
The system runs a small line from the compressor (on the engine) to the condensor (in front of the radiator), a small line from the condensor, through the orifice tube to the evaporator (inside the cab heater box) then a larger line out of the evaporator, through the accumulator/dryer, back to the compressor.
