The car is a 1995 Volvo 960.

A different mechanic found the A/C "high side" inlet. Apparently, my mechanic was trying to fill a non-related inlet!


I was told by a third mechanic that there is no "low side" inlet for Volvos?

Can anyone tell me if the "low side" inlet exists? If so, do you know where it is on my car?

Also, my A/C compressor turns on and off about every five seconds. Seems kind of quick to me. Is this normal?

Thanks.

The cycling might mean it is low on freon.
There is only a LOW side fill on your car and it is located on the dryer or accumilator which ever you know it as.

There is no high side fill on your car.It is possible that someone scewed a high side adapter on there.

Tech,

Thanks again for your help!

Another stupid question....I am assuming that means that I need to fill the "low side" inlet with R134-A, but does that mean that I need to evacuate the system first? Or can I simply fill the "low side" with the R134-A that auto part stores carry?

If you are low you can just add some to it.I would start with one can and see how cold it gets.You don't want to over fill it.They should hold 2.07 Lbs total.
