It is on the passanger side behind the engine down low. Very hard to reach, you will need a long hose to do it. I saw where it was and gave up. Good luck.

How to add refrigerant to air conditioning system


determine the type of refrigerant, conversion kits are available but not an easy job, most parts stores have refrigerant and connectors to add to your system, follow the directions on the can.

Freon smell coming through vents on 323ibmw


I don't think there is any smell put into refrigerant,so
you may be smelling coolant from a heater hose or
heater core leak or system valve, somewhere

The A/C cycling could be low refrigerant, in which case
you have it leak tested & system repaired

You don't try to add yourself,it will leak out & pollute
the atmosphere

Where do you put the freeon in the car on a 2003 lincoln LS V8 engine? i cant find the high pressure or low pressure line!!!!!!!!! help please.


The high port is in plain site next to the radiator on left side
The low port is on the compressor,have to remove some
rubber parts to get over sub frame.

No point in adding
If you have to add you have a leak.

How would you know how much is in the system &
how much to add. Don't do it

Have it properly done at a repair shop

Where is the port to add freon on a 2001 alero


ON THE LOWSIDE OF AIR SYSTEM.LOOK UNDER THE HOOD,MAYBE PASSNGERS SIDE AND REMOVE A VALVE STEM,LOOKS LIKE VALVE STEM ON TIRES TO ADD AIR.IT WILL HAVE A BLACK SCREW OFF CAP NEXT TO THE A/C DRYER OR DEPENDING ON THE ENGINE SIZE.SUGGEST YOU FOLLOW THE A/C LINES FROM COMPRESSOR TO THE DRYER,THE SMALLEST PORT WILL BE THE LOW SIDE THAT ALLOWS FREEON TO GO IN,BUT! I SUGGEST THAT IF YOU HAVE NEVER INSTALLED FREEON,PLEASE DO NOT ATTAEMPT AS YOU MAY BLOW A COMPRESSOR SEAL WHICH CAN COST AS MUCH AS A $1000.00 FOR PARTS ONLY! IT'S WORTH INVESTING $50.00 FOR LABOR AND $75.00 IN PARTS VERSUS THE OTHER RIGHT? RESEARCH,RESEARCH

Where do we put freeon for the air conditionner


There are only 2 fittings on your ac system. The low side is the one you put in refrigerant (r134a). It is the smaller sized fitting usually located on low side hose that connects to receiver dryer (looks like a can on passenger side firewall). The quick connect fitting on any recharge hose will only fit on this correct fitting. The other one (high side) is too large to fit. So you cant put it in the wrong one.

Cant find the valve to put freeon in 2000 ford focus


It is either on or near the reciever dryer in the right rear of the engine compartment. To corrrectly add freon, you need gauges and a refrigerant recovery system

The compressure kicks on, amd the blower works and it let me put the freeon in it once and thats all it let me know it dont work kno more when i add freeon? and it blows hot air


you need to have a repair shop do a leak check/test since you r losing freon somewhere if you have to keep adding it. Once it all leaks out it allows air to enter and air IS NOT a good thing for a/c systems. They run under an initial 30 inches of vacuum for freon charging.

Where do you put freeon for air rconditioner


It is safest for your vehicle's A/C system to have a technician add/adjust any components. A/C systems are extremely susceptible to dirt and contamination. If you want to add freon, you can buy it at any parts store, and if you look under the hood, you will see two lines (silver w/ black hoses attached) They will have what looks to be a capped valve with a colored cap (usually black and green) You cant mix it up and put it in the wrong side (the valves are different sizes preventing this) make sure to use a gauge and add freon per directions on the can. Good luck
