Need to know where the engine intake valve is located


May need to clarify what you are needing. There is an intake manifold that feeds gas and air to the the engine usually the top.
Also each cylinder has 1 to 2 intake valves in each cylinder so a v/8 has 8-16 intake valves. they are located in the heads and are partially visible by removing the valve covers. To re seat a valve you have to remove the heads.
Clarify so we can help more

LOCATION OF LOW PRESSURE AC VALVE ON 1992 FORD ECONOLINE 150 TO CHARGE AC


Valve is between accumulator and evaporator on the passenger side. Your van originally came with R-12 freon, so you will need to verify that it has been converted to R-134 before adding freon. The different gasses (and especially the lubricating oils) do not mix well.

Where do you recharge the airconditioning unit on a 98 jeep grand cherokee 4x4 loredo? Need the location of the fill valve. I already have the recharging kit.


Jeep GrandCherokee SUVs manufactured in or before 1995 use R12 refrigerant. You must retrofit these SUVs to accept R134 refrigerant using a retrofit kit available at your local auto parts store before you can recharge the system. In some areas, a license is required to retrofit an air conditioning system. If this is the case in your area, take your Jeep to a professional to retrofit the system.

Instructions:
  1. Step 1 Take your SUV to a mechanic to recover the R12 refrigerant out of the air conditioning system. A license and special equipment are needed to do this. Because R12 refrigerant is expensive, many mechanics will do the job for free.
  2. Step 2 Locate the Low Pressure Side connector port. You will find it on the driver's side of the engine. Remove the blue or yellow cap marked L. You only need to retrofit the system if you see a screw-type connector valve. If you see a quick connect valve, the system already is R134 compatible. Wipe the connector valve off with a clean towel. This ensures that the retrofit connector properly adheres to the valve.
  3. Step 3 Place the long retrofit connector from the automotive retrofit kit onto the Low Pressure Side valve. The retrofit connector has a special adhesive on the threads that will help it adhere to the valve. Screw the connector onto the valve. Tighten the retrofit connector using an adjustable wrench. Place the cap provided in the retrofit kit onto the retrofit connector. This keeps dust out of the system.
  4. Step 4 Follow the air conditioning lines away from the compressor until you see the High Pressure Side port valve. This is located near the Low Pressure Side service port. Remove the red cap and wipe the port off with a towel.
  5. Step 5 Put the shorter adapter onto the port. Twist it using an adjustable wrench until it is securely fastened to the port. Place the red cap from the retrofit kit onto the adaptor.
  6. Step 6 Fill out the Retrofit Identification sticker provided in the retrofit kit using a permanent marker. Remove the protective backing and place it on the interior side of the hood. This lets future owners and service professionals know that the system has been retrofitted.
  7. Step 7 Recharge the air conditioning system. See the related eHow titled "How to Recharge Air Conditioning with Freon in a Jeep Grand Cherokee."
WARINING:
Never try to evacuate the system yourself. A license and special equipment is needed to evacuate the system. Attempting to do this yourself will release refrigerant into the air, which is a federal crime.

Good luck (rated this help).

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.
