Fan works but air not cold


Try recharging your Freon. You can buy a recharge kit at almost any auto part store. Hook it into the low pressure port on the A/C line. On my 3.1L it is best to jack it up and get to in from underneath, metal line in the middle with a blue cap.

Where is the low pressure air conditioning service port on a 1998 Buick Skylark?


Locate your AC compressor.
The low pressure service port is located on the back of the compressor where the high and low side connections bolt to the compressor.
Look on this line about 4 inches or so back on the line.

Hope this helps.. Best of Luck

Where do I add coolant for the air conditioning?


I take you bought one of those 20 oz bottles of fill it yourself freon?? No problem, they work, follow the aluminum pipes out of the compressor on the front of the motor, they should head back to the firewall, somewhere on the top of these you will find a little cap, they should be marked, H and L, you want the L, low pressure side, It is the only side it will fit on anyway, fire up the engine, turn on the air, shake and squirt, watch the meter, take it up to full. You should be ok, for about 6 months, then, guess what?

I want to recharge my air conditioning in a 1991 cadillac deville


Here's what you do.

Get an R134a recharge kit or R134a recharge hose (with an optional gauge) that has the adapters to put on to the low side port located near the firewall on the passenger side.

If the system is down already, the computer may have disabled the compressor.

To reenable the compressor, disconnect the battery for a few minutes and reconnect.

Charge the system with about 2 or 3 11 oz. or so cans of R134a while the car is running and the temperature is set to the lowest (say 60 deg. F).

If your recharge hose has a gauge on it, the right pressure should be in the green area ranging from 25 psi to 45 psi on the low side when the compressor is running.

Cant find Low pressure AC port


Did you check the acumulator? There is a port on it, that is the low side port. Keep in mind that if you have to recharge the system it is because other parts need service (leak in the syst) and whatever refrigerant you put in it will leak out again. The system may work temporarily or may work inefficiently. Also may sure that there is oil in syst.
