How do I Recharge my AC?

Answer

If you need to recharge your AC (air conditioning), you should probably just take it into a mechanic. Trying to add freon yourself and messing it up can completely ruin your car's air conditioning system.

If your car still uses the old R134 or R12 refrigerants you will need to seek out a certified professional. These coolants are now under a strict regulation program by the EPA and will not be sold to anyone without a license.
A car system that takes R-134a coolant is easy to refill. You can buy refill kits with a can of coolant and a pressure gauge. Assemble the gauge and attach it to the can according to the instructions on the package. You'll attach the hose to the low-pressure port on your car. Turn the gauge counterclockwise to pierce the can, and then you can begin to fill the system once you've started the car with the air on high. Follow the package instructions to fill your system according to the guidelines.
