How do you add refrigerant on a 1996 Chrysler van?

Get a can of refrigerant at walmart and there's a black cap on

the line going to your compressor. It's the only one that will fit

the can. If it don't fit that ain't it. If you read the can it will

say that if it's in the red (pressure) then not to service it. That

means that you have a leak in your system and it has let the gas

expand. you then will have to take it to a service center and have

the old pulled out and new put in. I was told I needed to chase my

leak (that was 3 years ago now and I'm still blowing cold) That's

better than 500 bucks for a new condenser. lol
