Low pressure valve for 2008 ford explorer xlt


There should be two ports with black caps on the ac lines. One is bigger than the other to help prevent you from hooking up to the wrong side of the compressor.

Location of ac oriface on 1991 toyota carolla


Hello
Toyota doesn't use a fixed Orifice, they use what is called an "Expansion Valve" both part serve the same purpose to lower the pressure of a high pressure fluid to a low pressure gas. The expansion valve is located at the inlet to the AC evaporator core in the dash. Below is a picture of the valve.

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.

2004 Lincoln LS A/C Valve


In order to charge, you must locate the low pressure valve to install the refrigerant. The low pressure valve is between the compressor and the evaporator. Do not charge on the High Pressure side, The high pressure valve is between the compressor and the condenser. To locate the low pressure valve, follow the line that comes from the compressor and routes toward the firewall. The valve will be somewhere on that line. Do not overcharge. The amount of pressure that is needed on the low pressure side will depend on the ambient outside temperature.

AC has stopped blowing cold air. Compressor is working. Where is the recharge valve located?


There are two A/C refrigerant lines. The small line is your high pressure line and the larger line is your low pressure line.
Start at the fire wall and follow the "large " low pressure line to the compressor. The low pressure charge port will be some where on that line.
DO NOT try to recharge on the high pressure side ( small line )
Good luck, let me know.
