You need to check for leaks first. WalMart sells a kit to recharge your a/c system with R-134a and a stop leak sealer. Make sure your core valve is tight. You'll need a longer valve tool than what you use for your tires. Good luck

2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere - windows fog off and on inside.


Could be a blend door problem. You would need fresh air from the outside to keep the windows from fogging up. If the blend door that controls outside air gets stuck or fails to open, you may not get fresh air. The ac compressor would also need to run every few minutes to dry the air hitting the windshield.

Don't know what the warning light means that keeps coming on! It looks like a Christmas bulb or upside down acorn . . .


The heiroglyphs mystify me also. First move would be to check the
picture key in your owner's manual section pretaining to the instrument cluster specific to your car. Without actually having that in hand or being specifically familiar with the car, it would only be a guess.
Owner's manual should explain this in enough detail for the average
user to become familiar with the function of their vehicle.

Where is the low side port to recharge the AC on a 2000 Olds silhouette?


Follow hose from compressor or firewall & look for a valve sticking out with a plastic cap on it. Low side is the bigger diameter hose & piping.
