Sounds like your A/C is still using the older R-12 system, and must be converted to the R134a system. The parts store can sell you an adapter kit to convert the connections, but more often then not you will need to have the system evacuated, flushed, the reed valve checked for blockage and then recharged with R-134a. It does not matter which oil, either ether or PAG is used as R-134a will accept both. But you will need to follow the charge level chart under your hood to make sure you get the proper levels or oil vs refrigerant. If you are going to do this yourself you will also need to get your hands on a vacuum pump, once you crack the system open to flush it you will need to bring is back to -30psi before filling again.

    Understood, but the adapter kit will screw onto the connector and provide the snap fit connector that you are looking for. Once you put the adapter on then the cans that are sold with the snap fit hose built on will fit. I would be a little worried if there is no sticker somewhere in the engine compartment that states that this was previously converted. But if you have owned the car since it was new and it always had this connector then it really confuses me.

    If you know that the system is charged with 134a then the adapter kit, freon and maybe oil are all you will need.

Gday and happy new year hope you may have some advice that may help me with a problem im having i bought a disc brake conversion kit for my 64 bird we fitted up the kit with new lines the ki


First of all, I hope you got a new master cylinder with your disc brake kit. A new master cylinder should be bled before connecting the brake lines and then never allowed to pull in air during the rest of the bleeding process. A couple of fittings ans hoses should have come with the new master cylinder [see the kit listed for a picture]. If the master cylinder has an air bubble, you won't be able to properly bleed the rest of the system.
For the rest of the system you can make up a small catch bottle like the one pictured in the one man brake bleed kit; make sure the hose goes tot he bottom of the catch bottle. You have to cap the master cylinder reservoir before pumping the brakes or fluid will squirt out and all over; brake fluid is a like paint remover. Then start with the brake farthest from the master cylinder and bleed fluid out by having a buddy pump the brakes while you hold the catch bottle above the bleeder port so no air gets back in. [hint, put some pipe teflon tape on the outer threads only, not the inner end of the bleeder screws to seal the threads]. Check the master cylinder level often! If the brakes still are spongy after the first round of bleeding, have a buddy pump up the brake pedal with the bleeder screw closed and hold pressure on the pedal; you then open the bleed port until the pedal goes to the floor; have your buddy hold down the pedal until you close the port. Repeat on all brakes until the pedal is firm.

Bleeding the slave cylinder


A simple procedure.. I use a length of clear plastic tubing..about 1m will do...with a snug fit on the slave cylinder bleed screw. Simply attach one end of the tubing to this screw and the other into a clear bottle with at least 50mm of clean brake fluid, making sure the end of the tube is immersed in fluid. Personally I like to place the bottle in the engine compartment where it can be easily seen. So with everything in place, open the bleed screw, fill the reservoir to max then begin pumping. After several strokes ..perhaps 4-6..you will begin to see fluid moving up the tube. Continue pumping until fluid begins to fill the bottle, with no signs or traces of air bubbles. Be sure to check the reservoir often while pumping , topping off as required. Leaving bottle in place, slide under car, tighten bleed screw disconnect tubing then remove bottle and tubing from area. Inspect for fluid spillage and if any is found, flood with clear water, close bonnet and test drive. Good luck.

Where is ac charging port on a 1998 ford contour located


Hi,
Either on the "dryer" which is the bottle shaped item usually next to the radiator or firewall or on the largest diameter a/c hose, not the smaller diameter. You will feel this hose get cold if you are on the right one. I'm guessing you have a standard recharge kit from Wal-Mart, AutoZone, etc. which consists of a pressure gauge, screw on tap, valve, hose with attached fitting if yours differs let me know before proceeding otherwise, first attach hose to the low pressure charging port on the refrigerant line. This will be on the larger tube usually near or on the accumulator. The silver aluminum cylinder with several wire connections and 2 black plastic covers which will be your quick connect connections the smaller diameter one will be your low pressure side. Be sure to wear gloves and eye protection!!!
Thank you for contacting Fixya.com
