You will add R134a refrigerant to the low pressure side. There willl be to schrader valves, one for the high, and low pressure sides. You can only charge the low side. To locate the inlet, you will follow the lines off of the a/c if you are not sure where they are, it will have a cap over the schrader valve that reads L, that is the one that you charge.

SOURCE: how can I add freon to 1999 chev lumina

Get an a/c charging kit, it comes with a can of freon usually with a blue hose, and a small guage on it. The type is R134a.
Under the hood look for the a/c pipes, one has a red cap which is the high pressure, and the other has a blue cap,( that can be anywhere), that's the you need. Unscrew the cap, screw the blue hose on to the pipe, DO NOT TURN CAN UPSIDE DOWN. Start engine, turn on a/c full blast, open valve on can. Shake once in a while. When can is empty disconnect. If no other problems with system, there should be cool air coming out.

On my 96 yukon the air won't get cold its not


if it WAS working then gradually just seemed to not get cold it sounds like freon is low. with the compressor cycling on-off it has some freon in it. just add a small amount. i'll be honest its best to have someone with the recycler machine do this it will save you from adding too much and possibly damaging the compressor. most shops have a freon service special around 99 bucks?

You need to have your mechanic flush and refill your system because the do it yourself kits do not vaccuum the system to a negative pressure or add the proper oil to the lines.

I have a 96 lumina 3.1 car. the ac compressor will work fine sometimes, and other times it will not kick on. it is full of freon......?someone said the low pressure switch could be bad. i cannot find that...


Compressor clutches go bad sometimes.. it is an electromagnetic device on front of compressor. You may also need shot of refrigerant. Level may be at point where it is on brink of being low.
