Down low between the radiator and the engine. Look for the cap. Very hard to reach without burning your hand if the engine is hot. I had to rig a much longer hose to add 134a so the can would be upright while putting it in.

What kind of ac coolant does it have 134a or r 12 and where is the low pressure port for the ac located


Depends on the year. Cars in the early 90's used R12. Anything later uses R134a. The size of the charge ports will define the R134a port. An adapter is needed to fit on the charging hose. R12 requires no such adapter. Ther charging label under the hood will tell you what refrigerant is needed too. Since you failed to give enough information on what make and model car you have, a general answer for the location of the low pressure port will be given. On the compressor, the larger diameter hose connection is the low side. Connect there, or look for the drier/accumulator (Large diameter silver container near the firewall). Connect there. You will need to access the AC information label under the hood to determine how much freon to add to the system.

Location of ac low pressure port location 2004 chevorlet avalanch


Look back on the firewall for the two a/c lines. One is large and on is much smaller. The larger line is the low pressure line. Follow that line back to the compressor. The low pressure port will be on that line.

Hello! I have a can of 134a refriderant and when I looked for the A/C low pressure port for my '03 Nissan Altima, I found a valve 1 & 2 on the left upper/back part of engine, and an unmarked tube...


Hi, there are two lines coming out of the compressor, one is larger than the other, the larger one is low pressure side or suction side for refrigerant , the port is in that line under a cap , possibly blue, possibly marked with an L for low to be be removed while adding refrigerant, engine running , A/C ON ,use eye protection and gloves.

Cannot locate valve to add 134a refrigerant in a 2000 lincoln navigator


What your looking for is called a service port. On a 134a system there are two of them, located in the refrigerant lines. One port will be larger diameter than the other. The large one is the "high" side and the small one is the "low" side. refrigerent is added to the low side with the system running. You really should use a manifold gauge set to see what the pressures are before adding any refrigerant. If the system has too much, it is as bad as not enough.

AC blows warm. fan + compressor don't seem to engage.


The system could be low on refrigerant. The A/C pressure switch will not let the compressor run if the system pressure is below 28psi or above 455psi to protect the compressor from damage. At low pressures not enough oil (mixed in with the refrigerant) will circulate, and at high pressures, the compressor seals will likely blow. You can get a set of A/C manifold gauges for R-134a and check the system pressures yourself or get a shop to check it and possibly add some R-134a. If the system pressure checks good, then the A/C pressure switch, the compressor clutch, or some relays will need to be checked.

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).

Low side on ranger for the port on the ac


hmm ..if you are looking for the low side air conditioner port .. then locate the condenser (thats in front of and looks like the radiator) .. you will notice two tubes going to that ..one is large the other small .. the small tube is the high pressure side .. the large tube is the low pressure side ... follow the large tube back until you find a cap that covers the low pressure port .. thats where you would fill with new refregerant (r134a) .. if you buy r134a, you can also get a filler hose and gage.. that hose will only hook up to the low pressure port ..it wont fit the high pressure port ...

you should be adding the 134a to the system the low pressure switch is doing its job by not allowing the compressor to kick on, it wont kick on until there is enough 134a in the system to be above the preset pressure for the low pressure switch.
