It is located behind the inner (plastic) wheel well on the passenger side front between the front of the wheel and the headlight. The simplest way is to remove a few of the screws holding the plastic wheel well liner in and you can squeeze in with a can of refrigerant with a short hose. You could probably take the wheel off to make it easier. I would guess that they hid it here for some reason. I had to hunt for mine about a week ago.

you say it will blow cold and hot air for only a few minutes. You don't say but I assume you mean will blow cold a few min. when turned on AC max , blow hot only a few min. when turned to heater hot. Assuming thats the situation and you say AC charged and shows good on the low side -you should charge the AC to a full charge on the low side will cause problems with the AC air compressor kicking on and off. I suggest while the engine is running and turned to AC cold max watch the AC air compressor clutch to see if it does indeed kick on and off if so charge completely. As far as the heater make certain you coolant is all the way to the top and the best way to do this is when engine is completely cold remove radiator cap and fill completely and completely close cap then fill overflow container just to the cold level. That should fix your problem.

I am trying to locate the port for ac refrigerant on a 2002 ford focus


To add refrigerant to your A/C system, remove front passenger side tire, remove plastic inner liner of whel well ( I only removed the torx bolt that holds it to the fender and folded it back) There is a silver canister there with a small tube with a black cap, that is the low side where the refrigerant goes. Get the hose attachment wit a gauge so you don't overfill, and a can of r134a, I used duPont Suva, and follow the directions on the hose attachment. Cost around $35USD total and about 45minutes and I now have cool air blowing.

Where do i refill the ac on my 1999 mercury tracer


  1. Turn the car on.
  2. Turn the AC on coldest setting.
  3. Turn the Fan on highest setting.
  4. You want to fill from the low side and watch the gauge. Sometimes a AC system gets so low it has to be vacuum pressurized for a while before a charge will be successful. In that case the gauge will go into the red right away. Something to look out for anyway.
  5. With the R134 the connectors are different sixes so you won't be able to stick the refrigerant adapter on the wrong connector.
  6. See picture for the location of your low side (where you will fill) The high side runs the other direction off your compressor towards the condenser. Remove green cap to fill.

I need to retrofit and recharge my 1988 Dodge Ram Ac.


First, the old R-12 must be completely evacuated fromt the system. R-12 and R-134A do not mix and won't function together. Once you are sure there's no R-12 left in the system, you need to install an R-134A fill valve on the low side AC line. This is where your refill hose will connect to add R-134A. Once the valve is in place you're ready to fill the system. The compressor requires a minimum of 20psi to engage and should not be filled to more than 45psi.

RECHARGING AC SYSTEM

1.Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
2.Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
3.Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
4.Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
5.Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
6.You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
7.Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
8.If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective
Hopefully this answers your question and you're able to get your AC working again. Best of luck.

just find the AC lines marked H and L DO NOT TOUCH THE H. L stands for low pressure, unscrew cap and fill it with the ac kit from Wall mart or an auto store.

How do I add coolant to the air conditioning system of my 2001 Hyundai Elantra?


You need to locate the low port on the AC.

You recharge the AC connecting to the low port.

You find the AC low pressure at the top of the compressor. Near the compressor you find two ports, the high port and low port.
You can follow the compressor line to reach the port.

To find out which one is the low port, run the air conditioner for a couple of minutes withthe engine on.
Then turn off the care and touch the lines from compressor to the two ports , often covered with plastic caps. Only one of the pipes will be cold, the line that is cold will lead you to the low port.
