It is best to have the system tested for leaks, but if you really do want to add Freon, get a R134 can and hose kit from Kmart or Walmart, or Partsource. You need to be very careful doing this. Observe safety precautions. WEAR GOGGLES AND GLOVES and be VERY sure you fill from the low pressure side. You need to fill it from under the car, so if you can lift the front, or find a ramp or curb to let the front hang over, it's a little easier. Get under the car and find the compressor. The fill valve is close to the compressor. Unscrew the cap and judge how the hose will fit on. It's a tight fit. Now, get a 1/2 gallon pail of warm water (not hot). The freon flows best if the can is warmed. Mount the hose to the can, and start the engine and turn on the A/C to max. Verify the compressor clutch has kicked in. If it does not, the system may be too low and not engaging the low pressure sense switch. Probably best to get it checked if that's the case. If it is engaging, connect the freon hose to the low side fitting. Open the freon valve, and set the can in the warm water. After about 5-10 minutes, the can should be empty and floating. Close the freon valve and carefully (and quickly) remove the hose from the inlet. Let the freon circulate and check the A/C output. DO NOT OVERFILL the system. If it's still not cooling very well, you might try another can, BUT NOT MORE THAN the two. There may be other issues.
How do i add antifreeze to a pontiac grand am 2004
You don't. Take this to a professional and have it converted to R134. Freon is very expensive.
You ask your car. If he doesnt answer, try again. Ask anything! We seriously answer your questions!
The low pressure charging valve is on the accumulator........
Freon is no longer sold and available for use in vehicles, as it is extremely toxic and bad for the ozone layer. However, if you buy the currently available and used refrigerant for your car, you open the A/C valve and put it in there.
By buying an AC charge hose and a can or 2 of R134a freon (depending on how much your car needs) Attach hose to the low pressure side & charge system. Do not overcharge, or you may destroy the AC system.
the value to load the freon for a 1997 grand am is under the engine you would have to lift the front of car up and you should see the value on the right passenger side
the port to add freon is under the car in front of engine coming off the compressor hard to get to but can be done
You can add Freon to your 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix air conditioning system through the low pressure port. The low pressure port can be found on the air conditioner compressor.
I have a '92 model that has the ports just under and behind the air filter box. Look for the one with a BLUE plastic cap. leave the RED one alone.
Jeep Grand Cherokee cooling system through the low port on the air conditioning compressor. Connect your Freon bottle to the port and discharge.
It contains no Freon. It contains a refrigrant called R134a. Look here http://members.tripod.com/~jbabs714/autoac.htm
You need to convert the AC system to R-134a type freon first (retrofit kit). Then you charge it on the low pressure side.
THERE IS NO FREON IN A 98 IT IS R134
R134a. R-12 "freon" was discontinued years ago.
Connect the Freon recharge hoses to the ports on the air conditioner compressor. With the hoses connected release the Freon into the compressor.
A 2005 Pontiac Grand Am takes 4.5 quarts of oil. As you add oil, have the vehicle parked on a flat surface.
From below the front of the engine, look up just behind the radiator. You will see the connection.
Buy a kit at Wal-Mart or auto parts comes with instructions
