1996 Grand Am GT A/C recharge location pictures

I'm trying to locate the A/C input valves on my 1996 Grand Am GT to recharge the system, I have located one next to the radiator but the directions for the recharge says that the dust cover is usually black or blue and next to the firewall somewhere. Do you have any pictures or links to pics?

It is under the car in the middle behing the oil pan, up a little. You can crawl under it and see it and recharge it without jacking it up

Really, really, a stupid place to put the refill port for the ac! the one next to the radiator is in the best location, but nooooo! it's not the right one! when the engine needs to be running with the a/c on max, the last place to be is, under and behind the heat of the engine! what kind of 'idiot engineer' works at pontiac?

I want to charge ac in 1996 grand marquis but need to identify input valve

There are two access ports in the system. The high side one is located after the compressor, and before the receiver drier, which is an oblong shaped cylinder about 8" tall, just before the firewall, on the passenger side. The low side port is located in the other aluminum tube, before the input of the compressor. Follow the instructions with the re-charge kit and you should have no problem.

1996 grand am gt has a/c problem. Found low pressure side to be 75 PSI and high side was 150. I think it's the expansion valve, if so, where is it located. Temp was between 85 @ 90.

I think you have 2 issues

It either has a leak & someone tried to
add refrigerant & let air in or your
compressor seal slowly leaks & you may
be able to evacuate & recharge it

It won't work next summer though

Forget the expansion valve unless you had a
compressor failure.

Locating low pressure valve on 96 explorer for ac recharge

The largest diameter line is the suction which is low. The small one that runs to a coil by radiator is high pressure. If there is no cooling then you may have air in the system which means a leak must be fixed first. Are you sure the compressor is engaging? You should hear it click and the engine bog down a little.

Air conditioning needs recharged

First, you have to locate the thicker line in the compressor, then follow up until you find the valve to recharge the system, usually is located near by the accumulator bottle.
