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.

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.

Check engine light remains on after mechanic replaced mass air sensor. He reset it, it went off. After a few miles it went on again and stays on. I put a new gas cap on as well.

The gas cap is part of the EVAP System
Nothing to do with the MAF Sensor

Take it back. We can't guess at
why a mechanics work has not
resolved your issues.

The check light might be a new & different problem

I have a 1999 Saturn sl model and NOWHERE can I find the dipstick to check the tranny. There is the yellow dipstick for the oil, but where the Chilton's guide tells me there should be a red dipstick for...

The Transmission has a check plug and a fill cap. The check plug is located just under the passenger side axle and has a 11 mm head on it. The fill cap is on top of the transmission just underneath the air cleaner box. the transmission must be ideling in park and be warm to the touch , not hot or cold. Fluid should drip from check plug when full.

Where is the oil filter located on my 2010 V6 Camry

Not to be mean... But if you can't locate the oil filter cartrige housing, which is located beside the engine, toward the top side of the engine bay, with the round cap that has a oil can stamped on it... Maybe you should have a certified Toyota mechanic service your car. Not all cars have a visible "Spin on" traditional oil filter. Newer Toyotas (and many other new cars) have oil filtering cartriges. They are in filter housings and can be accessed via a spin on cap. (this is not the oil fill cap typically found on the valve cover. Do not fill the engine oil through the oil filter housing.) Removing these can make a large mess, requires the replacement of at LEAST one critical o-ring, and should be done AFTER the oil has been drained. Good luck

How to fill the air conditioner system with freon Corsica 1995


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.

try taking the door panel off to see if the lock engages.

Air conditioner

The one closest to your AC compressor... i.e. the part that the belt spins around.. Is the low side.. Not to mention, air conditioning recharge hoses ONLY FIT on the low side.. Worst case scenario, try both.. the one that it clamps down on to is the low side..
