Hello!

If my memory is correct, I believe the low pressure service port on this model is located above the air cleaner housing near the center of the firewall, facing downwards. If you remove the air cleaner and intake duct, and feel around in the area above where it was mounted, you should find the service port by following the A.C hose that passes through there. It is not the easiest thing to locate, easier by feel rather than by sight.

there are no ac hoses going through that area is it around the compressor or another area

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
