It will be the only one the charge hose will connect to.It will need to be retrofited if you have the 134a charge hose,it is a quick connect,and r 12 ,witch your car came out with,are screw on fittings,the retrofits will have to be screwed on to use the 134a ,and they will only fit the service ports they are designed for.If this was helpful,at all,please rate.

SOURCE: where is the ac lowside port located on a 2005 gmc

The low side port of the 2005 GMC savanna Van is located on the low pressure side of the compressor.

This is found by locating the compressor driven by a belt that has a clutch that engages and disengages as the a/c cycles.

The low pressure piping is always in the larger diameter piping, and the high pressure side is always contained in the smaller diameter piping.

Therefore, follow the thick pipes from the compressor up to the accumulator, which looks like a large can of soup. On the accumulator receiver/drier is a port that connects to the tube that is connected to the can of r134a freon refrigerant.

Simply quick connect the tube to the low side port, which is located on the 'thick' tubing or on the accumulator and then fill until the low side pressure is 25 psi to 45 psi while the compressor is running.

When the car is off and the compressor is not running, the pressure should be 75 psi to 100 psi on a hot day.

Hopefully the system doesn't have a leak slow or fast in it.

SOURCE: i cannot locate the lowside

The low side will be the "larger" hose. If running and if there's enough freon in the system...the low side will be cool to cold. (just a precaution to ensure we're looking at the low side.)

Ive seen ports mounted directly on the compressor...on some models.

But look near the washer fluid reservoir.

Where is the port located to put in freon

There are two lines running on the driverside. The high side is on top and the low side is below that by the battery. The low side is where you charge it at unless you have a a/c machine. The lowside will have a smaller port than the highside line.

Searching for the location of the a/c low-side service port in a 2000 Monte Carlo to attach auto air conditioner R-134a

trace the 2 aluminum lines coming out of the firewall. The one that goes to the compressor has the low pressure port you are looking for. It might be on the dryer (silver cylinder).

Where is the low side service port on a 2003 grand am (6cyl)

If your talking about the low side sevice port to charge your ac, its easy to find. With your recharge kit, it comes with a nozzle to attach to this lowside port. Each port, (lowside and highside), are different diameters. The charging nozzle will ONLY fit onto the lowside port. Just run the length of your ac lines from the compressor and trace them back to the firewall. You should find both ports before you hit the firewall.
