How to add Freon to 2005 dodge Durango 5.7L HEMI V-8

This is one thing I insist people have a technician do. If you do not do it correctly two things will happen -- damage to the compressor and damage to the environment. First you need to have the CORRECT grade of Freon, and you need the access tool kit to make the connections and you have to have the correct volume of Freon.

2000 dodge durango, a/c compressor stopped working after freon was added, did I do something wrong?

at a rough guess you add excessive amounts of freon and that caused the compressor to seize up
gas is added using pressure gauges and not by the can
besides that did you use the correct gas as the r134a runs at a much higher pressure and will deliver liquid back to the compressor which is not good for the operation

My a/c on my 2005 Dodge Neon Se won't stay engaged. When turned on the hub/clutch? will engage but only for a second then 3-4seconds later it'll engage again for about a second. It goes through...

If the ac compressor clutch turns on and off constantly, it could be low in freon,make sure it has freon,you can purchase freon cans already set up with a hose and a guage to read your freon pressure
if the freon pressure is normal, check the switch at the accumulator a long cylinder with a switch and a molex with two wires attached to it, with your ac running on high, move your molex it could be making a
bad connection, if the molex is okay, jump out the molex, if the clutch engages and stays running, just
replace the low pressure switch. good luck!

Air conditioning is blowing hot air

I would recommend that you check the fuse panel in your vehicle and make sure that the a/c fuse is good, then I would recommend that you raise the hood, turn your a/c on in the car, and then see if the compressor is cycling on and off. If the fuse is good, then there is a chance that your compressor is low on freon, so you should check this, and if it is low, then charging it should resolve the issue. The second problem is finding out where the leak is that caused the system to lose freon. To do this you will need to add dye to the system and see where it leaks. If the freon level is where it is supposed to be, then you may be looking at a faulty compressor, and will need to replace it, and with that you will need to recharge the system.

2006 Dodge Ram Ac Issue

Most likely you have a leak. Turn the air conditioner on high and look at the compressor on the engine if it turns for a few seconds and turns off you may be low on freon. If it does not turn at all you may be very low on freon in both cases it needs to be recharged, you should also try to find the leak and repair it to. Also check the condenser in front of the radiator to make sure nothing is blocking it. Good luck with it.

Compressor not engaging except only few seconds

Check your a/c freon pressure, sound like its low, when recharging have them check for leaks freon don't wast has to have a leak, the reason the a/c compr. cut off is because it has a low pressure switch, so when low on freon it will cut compr. off, so it don't damage it.

Compressor not cycling on and off

unless the compresor is on u cant get a good eye on if ther is enough freon but still should cycle on and off/if it has a low side cut out switch (scews in the large line with two wires)that can be checked by bypassing the switch/but mind u it could still have a problem with ac system/and if the ac works when bypassed(very short run time)then replace switch with new one right away,also look for ac clutch relay and check or replace

I'm wanting to put freon in my 1999dodge durango and I don't know which valve I put it in. The package said it would have a black cap and both ports have black caps.

you need to hook up the charging hose to the "low Pressure" port it should be the one closest to the a/c compressor, if you look at the lines coming off the compressor you will see it!!
it is the smaller one, the charging connector will only fit on one of the ports, so if it appears it will not slide on to the port then you need to try the other port!
also make sure the engine is running and the a/c is turned on while you are adding freon!!
