On my '97 the high pressure valve is left side front and the low pressure is underneath, near the compressor. There may be different locations for 4 & 6 Cyl.

Recharge the air conditioner


Instructions
    • 1Start the recharging process with any left over freon you may still have. Open the Civic's hood and attach the kit to the Civic's low side port. Then, set the kit onto a place in the engine compartment where nothing can move or shift once the engine has been cranked.
    • 2Start the Civic and let the engine run until it reaches its normal operational temperature.

      • Single Pressure Gauges for Indl., Commercial & Specialty Uses

    • 3Turn on the air conditioning to its coldest and hardest-blowing settings. Place a thermometer into one of the Civic's air conditioning vents and monitor how the temperature drops. Once the air conditioning's temperature reaches a level, constant degree, remove the thermometer.
    • 4Open all four doors on the Civic. This will allow any colder air generated to escape, and this will keep the Civic's air conditioning for accidentally cycling off while you recharge the refrigerant levels.
    • 5Turn the recharging kit's valve all the way down and let the refrigerant charge into the Civic's air conditioning periodically, shut the valve and look at the kit's gauge. This will allow you to monitor the recharging process. Allow at least one minute to elapse between refrigerant charges into the system.
    • 6Shut the valve of the canister, once it has become depleted. Disconnect the kit from the low side port.
    • 7Detach the hose, gauge, and valve from the empty canister and attach them to a new canister of refrigerant. Reattach the kit's hose to the Civic's low side port and continue recharging the system, allowing a minute between individual charges. The can itself can potentially grow very cold and hard to hold, even with gloves. Should this happen, wrap the can in a towel warmed in water. Ring out excess water before wrapping the canister.
    • 8Place you thermometer into one of the Civic's air conditioning ducts. Keep an eye on the falling temperature within the Civic's air conditioning system. The system is charged when the temperature hits 40 degrees. Also, within the engine compartment, the Civic's air conditioning aluminum tubing become uniformly cold.
    • 9Shut the recharging kit's valve and remove the kit from the low side port, once the system has been successfully recharged. Shut down the Civic's air conditioning, turn the engine off, and remove your key from the Civic's ignition. Also, shut all the doors

My freon needs charged buy I cannot find the right port to charge it up. Where is the port located?


Low pressure port is located close to the A/C compressor on the inlet tubing. You need to access it from underneath the front bumper/engine area.

The Low Pressure Side connector will be smaller than the High Pressure Side connector so the refill hose will fit properly only on the Low Pressure Side.

Where is the low pressure valve for the recharging the air conditioner on a 97 Olds Bravada?


it is located between the compressor and the accumulator. the quick disconnect valve is smaller than the high pressure valve so you can't make a mistake using the single recharging hose.

Need location of valve to recharge air conditioning on 1997 GMC Sierra 1500 V8


Some have the valve type that looks like a tire valve. Most newer vehicles have a red and yellow cap on the adapter. Red is for the high flow and yellow is for the low pressure flow

AC is not working


Sounds like the A/C system just needs to be recharged. When was the last time you had this done? Just take it in to your mechanic and he can do it for you and if that's not it for some reason, then he will be able to find the problem but most likely you need more freon added.

Air conditioning not working on 1998 oldsmobile achieva


But you need to understand that this may not fix the problem anyways and may have to dig deeper which needs to be done by a qualified tech. If your car is blowing some cool air it is probably just low and will work if you add a little freon.
