How to Add Refrigerant?

Answer

Before adding refrigerant to your car make sure to check and see if your car uses R134 refrigerant. You will use Freon and a pressure gauge also. Attach the hose to the refrigerant according to the instructions. You will recharge the low pressure side. Be sure to clean the outside of the low pressure port before removing the cap.Turn the gauge clockwise till it stops, and attach to the low pressure port. Start the engine and set air conditioning to high then turn off. To add the refrigerant, turn the gauge counterclockwise to retract the pin then add the refrigerant and turn the gauge again. Use the hose again, turn on the engine, and AC on high. Watch the gauge and fill till proper level.
