The low side port is up against the firewall, just behind the drive belt. the port is on the metal line between the evaporator and the dryer. a little rough to get to, but
can be accessed by the average DIY. not much room for the gauge and 134a can.

SOURCE: ac low side service port location

Your service port will always be in the larger line of the two .. which is low pressure side. It might be in the dryer also which is low side.. your dryer is about 3 inches across and 8 inches long and also has your pressure switch for the AC compressor in it.. holler if you dont find it now... thanks Jerry

SOURCE: Looking for low pressure port for servicing Freon

The ports on my 2005 silverado are on the same line,which is very confusing but, in between the two ports is the metering device (orifice) which changes the high pressure gas into a low pressure gas.The two ports are of a different size,with the low pressure being the smaller of the two. You can put your hand on the line, on each side of the metering device connection and the high side will be hot and the low side will be cold

Low ac port side


The low side A/C service port is located in the low side line nearest to A/C compressor. Due to the design of low side hose, it is difficult to see. When looking down to locate the port, the low side rubber A/C line obstructs the view to the port. I would recommend removing top engine cover and driver side front plastic cover (That Covers ECU And Relays) to easily view the port and it will make it easier to access it if you need to charge the A/C system. Hope this helps you out.

Where is the low side port for ac charge located on engine for 2001 mountaineer


4.0L , 5.0L : Back near the firewall (Evaporator) above the accumulator/drier. The line will be cold /low pressure port.
Near radiator (Condenser) is hot/high pressure port

Be careful, if unsure do not risk it. If the system is leaking this will be a very temporary fix and probably needs the service of an experienced auto AC person.

Recharging ac on 2001 hyundai sonata gls


No picture to show you, but it's on the right hand side in the engine bay either near the power steering pump reseviore or near the firewall (or somewere inbetween). Anyway, chargine the AC system is done at the "HIGH" side port (not the low side). I assume when you say 'fill' the unit, you're talking about "Charging the System with Refrigerant'?
