1989 s 10 blazer won't take freon has 55 psi on low side while filling with comp. On only 20 psi high side where should I look for prob.


Sounds like the fittings are reversed.
With the compressor running, the low side should drop below zero then climb to 60 or 80 psi as you add freon.
You would need to jumper the low pressure switch to engage the compressor clutch to add freon. The compressor must be running.

Where is the ac port located to add freon


On a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero LTD, the a/c charging port is between the battery and the windshield. It is the port that has a cap labeled with an "L" (Low Side).

When the a/c is on, "L" (Low Side) gets cold while the "H" (High Side) gets hot.

Make sure you use the Low Side (cold) for adding Freon.

(note: over the counter freon kits should not fit the High Side port anyways) 6d9ed8b1-112d-471e-93a4-44bee9a08459.jpg

Need to know where to add freeon at


Find the access ports. The large line is the Low side and that is where you will add freon. The small line is the high side and don't ever add freon through it.

A/C NO LONGER BLOWS COLD


sounds like the a/c is not fully charged, have the system serviced by pulling the freon out and pull a vaccum on the system and recharging with proper amount of freon. this should fix the problem. if when fully charged and this happens either the high pressure switch or low pressure switch could be bad.

My ac blow out hot air and i want to put freon in my self and want to know how


Adding freon will not correct the problem. If you need to add freon, you have a leak, and you have moisture in the system, the leak should be located, mositure removed, then freon added. But to answer your question. Open the hood on, the left side you will see a round object called a dryer, you will see two pipes coming from it, one at the top and one at the bottom. The smaller is the high side, the larger is the low side. Obtain a can of freon either R-22 or 134a with an adapter for installing the freon. Turn the engine on, turn the AC to high. Add the freon to the ac using the low side.

Adding freon to 98 Isuzu Amigo


You need to add the freon on the low side which is usually indicated by a blue cap. The red cap is the high side port. Never add freon using the high side port. Typically if you are buying a guage set from your local auto parts store, it will only attach to the low side service port because they are diffent types of connections. Another easy way to tell is to turn your AC on and feel the lines that the ports are attached to. The low side should be cold/cool and the high side will be hot.

#1 you will need r134a freon. #2 the low side service port is located right at the firewall where tha line goes to the evaporator. #3 if wou bought a can of 134a freon with a hose that will hook to it, it will work. all service fittings for 134a freon are the same even though the high side and the low side will always differ
