Nah, It's easy. AnswerJust get a refill shop from the Auto parts store. The valve to refill is under the washer reservoir and just north of that

The Funny Side. I don't think the population of Monte Carlo would be very impressed if you sprayed them with freon.

Refrigerant is added to a 1997 Pontiac Grand Am by removing the cover on the low pressure coolant line and attaching a can of refrigerant. The valve on the can is then opened and the system will automatically pull the refrigerant in.

pull the tranny dipstick out and add the fluid through the dipstick tube.

look for a oil cap that you take off on the valve cover.

in the top of the power steering reservoir on the passenger side of the engine.

Remove cap to power steering reservoir, add fluid, place cap on reservoir when done.

Refrigerant is added to a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire by removing the safety cap on the low pressure cooling line at the rear of the engine compartment. The charging line is then hooked up and refrigerant added until the pressure reaches specified levels.

If you just want to add a little you can use the overflow tank to do it or if the radiator isn't full just take the radiator cap off and pour it in.

To add refrigerant to a Dodge Dakota find the suction hose of the A/C system. On the suction hose locate the port to add more refrigerant to the system.

Quick release fitting located on the low pressure side (Larger hose from compressor)

There is no Freon in a 1997 Honda Accord. It contains R134a refrigerant. If it is low of refrigerant you have a leak. It is illegal to add refrigerant to any system with a leak without first repairing the leak. The professional who repairs the leak will recharge the system and check to make sure there is sufficient oil in the system. Not a repair for a novice.

Many home AC units are sealed, and there is no way for a homeowner to add refrigerant.

You add refrigerant at the low pressure port but you do not add Freon. You add R134/134a. If you are having to add refrigerant then you have a leak that needs to be repaired first.

If you are having to add refrigerant, then this means you have a leak, and you will be adding refrigerant again in a few months. It is illegal to add refrigerant to a system with a leak without first repairing the leak. So, my advice is to take it to a professional and have the leak repaired and refrigerant added with the proper equipment, which you do not have.

On the DOHC Duratec engine (don't know if it's different), the low side port for adding refrigerant is in the back left hand corner. Beyond that, follow the directions as supplied with the refill 'kit'.

To the low side. Yes to the low side, on the suction side, larger hose on the a/c manifold behind the a/c compressor.

Dodge caravan 1997,instrument cluster is not working in all..have a kind of fuse o relay?.

System does not contain Freon. R134a refrigerant is added through the low side service port on the accumulator.

Passenger side rear of engine down low. I had to take the two nuts off the strut tower tie bar and lift it slighty to get down there. That is a lousy design!! I then used a snorkel funnel to add fluid. On my 2001 Monte Carlo it is to the right of the bottom of the engine coolant, below and at the rear of the alternator, just in front of the fire wall. Hard to find unless you know where to look, good luck.

Do not add refrigerant. You must completely evacuate the system, then fill it _by_ _weight_ to prevent overcharging. Overcharging can cause leaks and/or compressor failure.

Professional help is the best answer. $75.00 or less if it R134 and conversion necessary if it R12 ($150.00). Do not get suckered. Get a few prices before committing.

You add the refrigerant through the low side service port.

I've been driving my 1995 Ford Explorer for almost 14 years and have never had to add refrigerant - the system still works fine
