On top of your air conditioning accumulator ("can") on the passenger side of the engine, around 5 inches or so from your heater/air conditioning electric fan motor. It has a plastic cap covering the valve.

Freon is added through the low side pressure port. A gauge will be needed to check that the system is not overfilled. The Freon and gauge can be bought together as a kit.

Either buy the R-12 off eBay or use Freeze 12..................

You can put Freon into your air conditioning system through the low pressure port. The low pressure port can be found on the top of your air conditioning compressor.

On a 1996 Ford Explorer : ( r134a )

A 1998 Ford Explorer uses refrigerant 134a

1994 Ford Explorers came with 1lb 8oz (24oz) of R134A freon.

The 2001 Ford Explorer A/C unit does not contain Freon (R12). Freon has not been used since 1995.

R 12 was used when the 1992 Explorer came from the factory

R134 was standard that year.

I believe it is R-134a , that is what my 1995 Explorer uses

Listed on the A/C system somewhere. It for sure does not use Freon which is R12. More than likely uses R134a

I believe it is R - 134a , that is what my 1995 Explorer uses

I need a step by step print out of how to recharge my 2001 Ford Escape XLT. I plan on refilling with R-134 Freon. Can you help me?

A 1998 Ford does not contain Freon. It contains R134a. It holds 30 ounces of R134a and 9 ounces of oil if it is completely empty.

The easiest way is to add freon and an oil with a dye additive and use a florescent light and yellow goggles to pinpoint the leak/leaks........

30 ounces of 134a when system is completely empty,

The ac is recharged through the low side ac port. Using the right type of Freon and the proper gauge for that type of Freon, connect the Freon to the port and fill to the proper gauge reading. Check the can for exact refill directions.

Whenever the freon filled system is opened air gets in and to remove it you attach a vacuum pump and empty the entire system before adding replacement freon. HOWEVER, if you have already added freon and do not have access to a vacuum pump, just bleed out the air and freon at any convenient point, the freon will push out the air leaving only freon vapor, then recharge with new freon and you will be air lock less!

1997 =============================================================== I know that my 1993 Ford Explorer took R12 , but my 1995 takes R134a

A 1995 model year and newer vehicle will use R134a refrigerant.
