FAQs

  • The low side service valve is located in the line that runs from the compressor through the evaporator (firewall) and up to the condenser on the low pressure (suction) side of the system. R-134a recharge hoses will only fit on the low side service port on all R-134a vehicles and R-12 vehicles that have been converted to R-134a. If you don’t know where your low side port is, you can try using our low side port finder.

    The only fitting that the standard recharge equipment will fit is the low side service port.

  • The EPA requires that ANY replacement refrigerant MUST have unique fittings, charging devices and label. Therefore, the EPA states that “drop in” refrigerants are illegal. Furthermore, only R-134a has been tested and approved by the original equipment manufacturers.

  • No. Federal law prohibits topping off an R12 system with a different refrigerant. Your options are to locate some R12, however you must be certified to purchase, and add it with an R-12 recharge hose. Or you can convert the system using one of our R-134a retrofit kits that will allow you to now add 134a refrigerant to your automotive air conditioning system. You will have to make sure that you remove any residual R12 by having it evacuated prior to retrofitting your vehicle.

    1. Turn the valve handle of the charging kit counterclockwise until the piercing stem is in the up position. This will prevent accidentally piercing the can. Screw the charging kit onto the can.
    2. Attach the quick connect fitting to the low side service port.
    3. Start engine and put A/C settings on maximum cool with the fan settings on high.
    4. Turn the valve handle clockwise until the piercing stem has punctured the can.
    5. Turn the valve counterclockwise until you feel the refrigerant leaving the can. See packaging for complete details. Always wear protective gloves and eyewear.
