AC's routinely are sold/installed without charging valves.

So, unless your unit has been worked on/serviced in the past it will not have any place to charge with freon.

Note: unless you've developed a 'leak,' it is unlikely that you've lost any freon, and in the event that you have - it will take a Service Tech to install valves and charge your unit correctly.

I would call a Service Tech to assist.

hope this helps.

Trying to recharge A/C system in 2003 Frontier CRew Cab. Do you have a diagram of system so I can locate high and low pressure lines.


To recharge A/C system in 2003 Frontier Crew Cab. Brother, don't concern yourself about the technical stuff of which is high or low pressure line. The refill/charge kit line will only fit on ONE of the 2 line fittings anyway. The line fittings I speak of are covered with a plastic cap like the one on your tire valve stem. Get your recharge kit from parts store, get mine from NAPA, with the line and a bottle of Freon. Find the charge fitting, usually on the passenger side under hood not far from firewall. Take the cap off and put it in your pocket. Open the kit, screw the piercing pin of the canister end out and put that end on the Freon canister. DON"T pierce the canister YET. Screw the other end on the charge fitting of your system and start the engine, turn on the AC on high, NOW pierce the canister top by screwing the knob/t-handle all the way in and then back it out half way. This will allow the Freon to escape the canister and the AC compressor will pull it into the system. Now, I've one trick for you. Before piercing the canister, get a small bucket of HOT water and have it there at the vehicle front. Soon as you pierce the canister and back the pin out half way, stick the canister into the hot water in the bucket. The heat will force ALL the Freon out of the canister till empty. Once empty, remove the kit line from the charge fitting on your vehicle, remove the canister from the kit line, trash the empty and hide the kit line where you can find it later, dump the water and put the bucket away, and go sit in the cool. One canister should take care of the recharge. If you put too much in from another full can, it may overcharge the system and still have no AC. That's just the nature of the beast. If it leaks down, get a leak detector kit from same place you got the recharge kit and find the leak. They also make a literal "Stop Leak" kit for AC systems too. Same place will have it. Brother, old school on this stuff. I figure things out quickly. There's no reason why this I told you won' work. It's what I do. Have fun Bro.

Lincoln ls 2000 where do I recharge my a/c where is the part at on the car?


Follow the suction hose from the A/C pump back toward the evaporator. You should run into a port. Unscrew the cap and connect your charge guage. I hope this helps.

Please advise how to add freon to mitsubishi montero '01 air conditioner unit


The best thing i can tell you is to take it into a shop. You can add freon to a system but you need to know what kind your vehicle needs. If it takes the new current freon your in luck you can buy a recharge kit at any local parts store. If not you have a few options. You can get a conversion kit to change the system over to the new freon or you can try to find a shop that can recharge it with the older freon for your vehicle. Since its an 01 it should be the new freon but i cant be sure. There is a fitting with a cap on it on you AC Lines. should be 2 a red cap and a green cap. You remove the green cap and with the engine running attach a recharger bottle from the store and refill the system. Note the freon recharge kit will come with some instructions to always read them first. hope that helps good luck.

How do you add freon to a mitsubishi split system


If its R22 you have to have a license to buy it. But outside unit on the larger copper line will be an access will look like a 3/8 copper fitting with a cap on it there is also one on the small line. You will need a tank of r22 and a set of gauges. If the compressor is running you add freon til the large copper line starts to sweat. The small line (high side) should not slug or have the gage on it jump this means its overful or has air contamination in it. Always add thru the larger line.good luck

FREON COMES OUT OF LOW SIDE PORT WHEN I TAKE CAP OFF


This means the shreader stem valve (like in the tire stem) needs to be tightened or replace if tightening doesn't do the trick. There is a specialty tool we use to remove the stem and replace it without loosing the charge. The stem itself is very cheap. This is something that spending a little with a repair shop could save big on the damage to the system if this issue isn't solved quickly. If you know an a/c tech he most likely has this tool, perehaps an autoparts store would. If you loose all the charge, a vacume would need to be pulled on the system before you can recharge the system. Please remember to rate our ansewers to improve our service.

All of a sudden my A/C is throwing out hot air, what can it be


It's likely out of freon. Quick check is to remove the protective cap on the low side connection (near firewall) and depress the pin in the valve. You should see a milky-gray gas that indicates freon, if it's just air then the system needs recharging. A shop will charge around $100 to recharge the system. Make sure they put in some dye so that any leaks can be easily identified after recharge.

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.

Need to add freon to '99 chevy venture


on a 99 they use R134A and I suggest you buy a can from autozone the one with a gauge on it and it has compressor oil in it. When you use the can that has the gauge it will tel you several things one if the compressor is leaking and does it have vachum and it will keep you from over charging. It will hook up on the low side, and it will be on the passenger side by the fire wall. unscrew the blue cap start the car turn the ac to max A/C and fan on max do this in the morning as it will take a chage better if it's not hot, then crack open the valve on the can to allow enoungh freon to get the air out of the line of the can, this is very important, air mixed with refrigerant creates an acid in the ac system and will eat the rubber hoses and the orifce tube. Now screw the cap of the can on quickly and get it tight and open the valve on the can 1/2 to 3/4 turn and watch the gauge, shake the can back and forth to allow gas and liquid into the sytem so it will not slug the compresor with to much liquid and damage the compresssor, continue to wath cht gauge if it gets about 50 then shut off the valve and wait watch the gauge to see if it drops down to 30 if it does check inside to see if the air is cool if it's colder ad a little more watching the gauge as you do and continuelly shaking the can back and froth that is from side to side not up and down, I want to be clear about that. If the gauge reaches 50 shut the valve off check to see if it is cooling more, watch the gauge with the valve off if it drops to 30 again then quickly unhook the can screw the cap back on and then drive it on a stright away for a couple of miles to see if it gets cooler, if it does you may try to add more refrigerant but be careful cause at a certain point like 50 on the gauge it will stop cooling and yo will have it over charged and since you can't see the high side pressure we are just guessing what it is, if it's 30 on the low side then it will be 225 on the high side if its close to 50 the high side will be 300 to 350 and close to poping the safety release valve. good luck and hope this helps, normally the reciever dryer has to be replaced and the orifice tube but you might get lucky. And follow the direction I gave you exactly, if you see the pressure build to over 50 shutthe car off and unhook the hose anddo not attempt to charge it, it can blow the can up if the pressure gets to high. Good Luck.

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.
