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?

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.

Low Pressure Valve 97 Grand Am


The low pressure valve is down by the AC Compressor. It is part of the aluminum manifold that connects directly to the AC compressor. It is accessible from above, but easier to reach from under the car.

By the way, is there any particular reason why you want to recharge your AC system? If it isn't working, adding refrigerant will not necessarily fix the problem. If the refrigerant has all leaked out, you probably need to evacuate the system first.

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.
