Yes, you can use that. As far as the location of the down port, I would need your engine size. The air lines are alluminum. Just follow the chrome looking lines and you should be able to find your service port. It will have a cap on the port. It looks like a tire valve but much bigger.

If my freezon would be low then why is it very cold air when I'm going on the road


because the temp difference between the hi and low side will be greater faster than a normally charged system the reason it cycles off is the keep the evap. from freezing up, but running to low on Freon can cause poor lubrication in the compressor causing damage to the compressor, yes it will blow very cold for a short period of time with a low charge

How to get AC to blow cold all the time on my 2000 Volvo v70?


You'll need to have someone check the refrigerant charge with a manifold gauge.
If the low-pressure side is lower than it should be but the high-pressure side is normal or showing higher than it should, your orifice tube may be clogged.
Seriously, start by having the refrigerant pressures checked.

I have a 2004 pacifica and my ac blows hot air unless its less than 67 degrees outside. Anything higher then it blows heat and just spurts of cold air.


You quite likely have a low state of charge in the AC system, have a shop hook up a set of AC system pressure gauges and verify that the system is low on charge.

My ac blows warm air


You need to hook up a set of AC pressure gauges to the low side charging port and read the system pressures with the AC compressor turned on and running, it should be around 28-32 PSI. If the compressor press is correct you have some other problem like a broken air temperature control blend door inside the dash air ducting.

I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 that will blow cold and hot air for only a few minutes. After that is only ambient air temps. It is a 5.7 ltr, automatic with only one set of climate controls. The heater core...


you say it will blow cold and hot air for only a few minutes. You don't say but I assume you mean will blow cold a few min. when turned on AC max , blow hot only a few min. when turned to heater hot. Assuming thats the situation and you say AC charged and shows good on the low side -you should charge the AC to a full charge on the low side will cause problems with the AC air compressor kicking on and off. I suggest while the engine is running and turned to AC cold max watch the AC air compressor clutch to see if it does indeed kick on and off if so charge completely. As far as the heater make certain you coolant is all the way to the top and the best way to do this is when engine is completely cold remove radiator cap and fill completely and completely close cap then fill overflow container just to the cold level. That should fix your problem.

How can I figure out if the a/c compressor is out?


You mean shot? Or out of the car? Or empty? Have somebody in the car while you are looking at the compressor stuck on the front of the engine with a belt attached to it, turn on the engine, turn on the ac, if the clutch engages, it is working, if not, it is shot, If it does not blow cold air, it is out of freon. If it is out of freon, get a 20 oz can at walmart, hook up to low pressure and blast it up to 45 lbs. It might work, might not, for $20 you take a gamble, the ac guy will charge you a lot more than that. The hose will only connect to the low pressure side of the ac system. Hope this helps.

I have a 98 blazer that in the morning blows ice cold air. After driving for awhile it will stop blowing cold and if you turn it off wait and turn ot back on it sometimes blows cold again. ANy ideas


I would replace the low pressure AC compressor cycling switch, it may be sticking, it is a fairly common problem. The switch is located in the low side of the AC system hoses or accumulator.

A\c does not blow cold and system is


A 1999 Cherokee with the compressor running can be overcharged or the compresser blown, ( not pumping) Most of the timw if this happens the pump is noisely when running with gauges hooked to the system and the compressor on the low side shold be low and the high side 175 lbs. or more. If it is and the lines coming from the compressor are hot on the highside(small)and coldonthelow ( bigger ) thenan air doormay not be working in the dash. a scanner may help looking thought the body control systems and find something not working correctly.

AC doesn't blow cold air, but refrigerant levels


The low side pressure seems ok the high side would help,Is your compressor cycling and is the air coming out even slightly cool?slight over charge cold effect cooling ability.I wish I could be more help. I will have to think about this one.maybe you could make sure your temp.door is actually in the commanded cold position.
