You need gauges to properly add freon to the system. Using a kit from the auto parts store R-134a can be added to the low pressure hose, it will have a cap on it with an L stamped in it. Follow the directions on the kit. Take it to a repair facility. It will never work properly if you don't have it evacuated, checked for leaks then recharged. To add freon (real term is Refrigerant) to a 96 Taurus you need to access the Low Pressure port located on the firewall at the passenger side in the engine compartment. Go to your local autoparts store and buy a Refrigerant Dispensing unit and 1-2 cans of R-134a Refrigerant Also buy a can of Red Refrigerant Die. This will allow you to locate leaks in the system. Some also work as a sealant sealing the leaks temporarily. Ask your local autoparts store for assistance. They may even help you in their parking lot. (such as autozone or pep boys)

How do you add freon to a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero?

The 1999 Oldsmobile Alero does not have Freon in the A/C system. It contains R134 and not Freon which is R12. As I am sure you do not have the proper equipment to recharge the system plus the fact it is illegal to add refrigerant to a system with a leak, until the leak is repaired, take it to a professional and have the leak repaired. You have a leak or you would not need to add refrigerant.

Why would your AC when set on Maximum keep shutting off?

It is probably getting low on freon. When the system has minor leaks and the freon pressure lowers the system begins to shut off the compressor which circulates the freon through the system to protect the compressor and other components from damage. Have the system recharged, or add freon on your own. You can now get freon from many parts stores.
