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.

A 1999 Cavalier does not use Freon as a refrigerant.

no, losing the manual would not cause the car to use freon.

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!!! Check for a decal under the hood or on the compressor for the information you seek. I believe that around 1996 car makers started using R-134A instead of R-12 refrigerant. Hope this helps.

No, Freon is no longer used in vehicles' cooling system. Should you take your car in for maintenance, the mechanic will use a special vacuum to remove and properly dispose of the Freon. The mechanic will then use R-134, a replacement for Freon.

NO! You would never put propane in an air conditioning system! For air conditioning to work it needs FREON. Depending on your car you need to find out what kind of freon it requires, as well.

yes, it will blow out your seals. causeing all the freon you just put in to leak out. yes

all i know is that freon is put into air conditioning units in your car. it's what causes your A/C to be cold

Freon is the trade name for R12. Your car contains R134 or R134a which is not Freon.

The line that you fill freon to in a car is known as the fill line. Going past the line can cause overflow, or even damage your vehicle.

What is used in vehicles is called Refrigerant, freon is just a brand name used by the DuPont corporation. .......

The exact amount of Freon that needs to be added to a Kia Optima is unknown. This is because if Freon is needed there may be a leak and the car will need to be taken to a mechanic.

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.

right next to the compressor under the car

Replacing fluids in a car can be tricky the first time around. The freon for a 1992 Honda Civic is put into the suction hose or pipe assembly under the hood.Ê

you use freon to cool your car and make the air conditioner work

It depends on the year of your car. If your car is 94 and newer than you would use R-134A refrigerant.

Where do I put freon in a 2007 chevy impala

where do you put freon in on a 2000 gmc jimmy

you will put freon in the low side port and it will be located on the reciver/dryer this is a round cylinder shape part this car will be filled with r134a

It varies from car to car. The best way to know for sure is to consult a qualified A/C shop. Good luck!

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.

When you are going to add Freon to a Toyota Camry, you need to know which type to add. You will need to put the Freon recharging coupler to the recharging kit, and get the engine to operating temperature. When the engine is at operating temperature put the air conditioning on the lowest setting and recharge the Freon with the windows of the car rolled down.

Freon is odorless; you cannot smell it.
