R12R12 is now illegal to use. older cars still using it are okay, but no shop will fill it or fix it using r12. you are required to have the freon flushed and the ac compressor oil changed. you then need to buy an adaptor kit and upgrade the system. You need to then use R134A Freon. R12 was banned because of what it did to the environment. Check with a local auto parts store before you attempt to use R12 and get more info.

It won't tell you in your manual.

Adding freon is something that should be left to someone that knows what to do and has the gauges to measure how much is being put in. If you put too much in, you can damage your air conditioning system.

Now for the other side of this. Nowdays, a shop can't just add freon to a system. They have to pull the old freon out, check the system for leaks, and repair the leak if found before adding freon. Something that gets to be expensive very quickly so I can see where you would want to do it yourself and save a lot of money.

See if you can find someone that will do it for you, use your freon, and not go through all the crap. maybe a mechanic that will do it on the side or something...

Where does freon go in a 2003 Honda accord

'91 Accord. If you are still using r12, its gonna cost about99 bucks a can. You'll find the ac fittings by the dryer (left front?) Dealers can install a conversion kit to the new freon for about 45 bucks, and the new freon is obviously much cheaper

You don't add Freon as it has R134a not Freon. You add it to the low pressure side which is the larger hose.

You do not want to buy Freon as it is very, very, expensive. Have the leak repaired, the system purged of all Freon R12 and the oil. Have it converted over to R134 refrigerant. You cannot just add R134 as the oil used in R12 is not compatible with R134. You will be money ahead by converting it.

There is one valve that is used to add refrigrant. But you had better not add Freon. Freon is R12 and your vehicle's A/C system does not have Freon (R12) as a refrigrant. More than likely it uses R134a.

R12-if it has ac of course.

The 89 Volvo 740 GL uses the old R12 freon, you need special equipment that fits R12 to fill it up, and you need R12 freon, all of which are somewhat hard to find, and expensive. You can take it to a shop and have the AC system converted to today's R134 standard. It is not very expensive.

You can replace freon depending on how much you need for as little as twenty dollars. It more than likely will require labor which will add at least 75 dollars to this price.

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.

None, as it does no contain Freon, it contains R134a refrigerant. If it is low it means you have a leak. It is illegal to add refrigerant without first repairing the leak. Seek professional help.

you add it to the LOW pressure line running from the front of the car to right below the bottom of the windshield. There should be a blue cap on the inlet port with an "L" in the top,.

The 1996 Suburban uses r134 Freon. The fittings to add Freon are different sizes on r12 and r134, making it impossible to add the wrong type to your vehicle.

There will be two couplers on the system. The one you add freon to is the larger one on the low pressure line. From your compressor, there are two lines, the low pressure is the larger one. Check it and you will find a coupler between the compressor and the firewall.

Plenty!!! Freon (R12) is very expensive and is no longer in production. I suggest you have the system converted to R134a. The shop can recover the R12 and pay you for it. Make sure the leak is repaired before charging the system.Plenty!!! Freon (R12) is very expensive and is no longer in production. I suggest you have the system converted to R134a.

It contains no Freon and instead contains R134a refrigerant. It is illegal to add refrigerant to any system with a leak until that leak is repaired. Take your car to a professional and have the leak repaired and the system charged.

pick up a bottle of HOT SHOT FREON, You wil need a EPA card to buy this. Just vacuum out your system then add about 12 ounces of the hot shot freon. HOT SHOT is a direct replacement for R12.

Your car contains no Freon R12, it contains R134 which is not Freon. If you need to add refrigerant then you have a leak. It is illegal to add refrigerant without first repairing the leak. Take it to a professional and get the leak repaired.

No it does not. You can add it though.

The dipstick for the 2004 Honda Accord is located beside of the battery. A funnel is needed to reach the tube to add fluid.

Only a qualified repair shop can add r12 to your vehicle, it is not available to consumers. If you convert to r134 it is available at parts stores and is added to the low pressure side on the metal tube in the engine compartment signified by a L on the green cap.
