It is an aluminum line that goes from the firewall to the compressor--this is the low pressure or return line. There is a second smaller line that goes from the firewall to the radiator--this is the high pressure line. The system is charged using the smaller port on the larger, low pressure line. The port looks like the valve on a tire, but is larger. There is a similar port on the high pressure line, but it is larger yet, and your recharge hose will not fit on it. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Need to know what the evap hose looks like

A/C systems have two hoses, a smaller diameter one for high pressure and a larger diameter one for low pressure. High pressure freon is compressed in the compressor and and pumped under pressure in the smaller hose to the evaporator where the freon is expanded/evaporated and becomes cooler via the expansion process. Here the freon absorbs heat. The larger hose then carries the expanded/evaporated freon to the radiator where it is cooled, then on to the compressor.

2004 sebring air conditioner stops and starts

Low freon will cause the compressor to short cycle, when the compressor runs the pressure in the low line is pulled down and the low pressure switch turns it off. Not running the pressure builds up and turns it back on. In the old days there was no low pressure switch, with no freon to carry the oil the compressor was destroyed.

I have a 2001 Sebring when I push the air button the light does not come on an the air does not work

Assuming has been working. First check the freon. The air will not come on if the freon pressure is low. This is a safety feature to protect the compressor that depends on freon to carry the oil that lubricates it

A/c system the high side line gets very hot ?

Yes. One line gets hot and the other gets cold. The freon gas carries hot air out of the passenger compartment and expells it from the condenser. The freon gas changes from gas to liquid and back again.

How to add freon to 2003 chrysler 300m with pictures

He is not an expert. This should be carried out at a garage with experience ofChrysler. It should be carried out only by qualified personnel, having an accident with freon can blind. Take it to a Chrysler man/woman is my advice, you will have the peace of mind that it has been done properly

Where to replace refrigerant; no cold air blowing

ac lines under the hood carry r134 through the ac system. there are high pressure lines and low pressure lines. each side has an opening for service. it is not uncommon for the system to lose refrigerant and either be less efficient or not work at all. to add freon to the system runs the risk of overcharging which will cause the system to run less efficient and possibly cause damage to the compressor or seals. the charging or adding of freon is always done to the low side and you can identify the low side by the size of the line. you will see there are two obvious sizes of lines. find both connection points first and make sure you know you are dealing with the larger lines which is the low pressure side. attaching to the high side could cause a can to explode and you could be injured!! with the engine running and the ac on its coldest setting with the fan at maximum speed you open the freon can with it in the upright position. verify that the compressor is engaging the clutch on the compressor. cans usually contain about 12 oz of freon. stay away from the mixes that try to give you stop leak and lubricant. try one can and see what you get. about those lines the size of the high side is like a pencil and the low side is like a magic marker. that should help you identify them. if you need more please reply and good luck

I have an 1998 GMC jimmy 4.3 motor .my air conditioner quit working so I thought it needed charging .but once I hooked of the canister to refill the aircon I seen the compressor was not turning .so I...

There should be a low pressure switch located on one of the metal a/c lines. It probably has 2 wires. Sometimes it is necessary to 'jump' across this switch to complete the circuit to the compressor until it starts to accept freon and build pressure. This is a safty feature designed to prevent the compressor from locking up due to the absence of oil, which is carried by the freon. Good luck. Dave
