if you have a small can of refrigerant you attach the specially made hose to it. then connect the other end to the vehicles low pressure fitting. this fitting is always on the larger of the 2 a/c pipes. start the engine, turn on the a/c and if the compressor works properly the can should be empty in a few seconds. remove the hose from the vehicle first while the engine is still running with the a/c on.

Your car uses refrigerant not Freon. Freon is a brand name put out by DuPont. All ac systems use refrigerant often mistakenly called Freon. All of them!!!

Freon is put in the "Low" pressure side of the AC system.How to find it:When you open your hood, you'll see an AC line with an input line on it. The one closest to the front of the car is a High pressure side- DO NOT use this one.Instead go to the right side of the car and look for another AC line with another 'service port' coming from the passenger side of the car. Unscrew it, and attach your Freon line here.
