    Air Condition Recharging

    How do you recharge the ac. Mine is working ok, but I think it could
    be better. I can not find the info in the service manual.

    Re: Air Condition Recharging

    you can get all you need at Wal-Mart. 1 can of freon " 134a " and they even have a cheat gauge with hose to load the gas ( instructions on back of box ). Pretty simple task to do. Just keep in mind that more gas/freon doesn't always mean cooler air. You have to keep it in the appropriate range as far as pressure. Should run around 35-40psi on low side. Low side is the bigger line that will be cold and wet with condesation.....or should be cold and wet. Just find the connection fitting on that line and connect gauge. If pressure is running to low, then screw on can of freon and slowly ad to system. Don't force froen into system. Just give a couple shots and keep checking gauge. Continue untill pressure is in acceptable range.

    Where is the connection for adding freon and checking pressure? Is it the valve just above the brake fluid reservoir?
