I am trying to add Refrigerant to my 2000 Ford F-150 5.4

Customer Question

I am trying to add Refrigerant to my 2000 Ford F-150 5.4 XLT. I have added and checked pressures all the way back to the Freon 12 days. The fitting I have found appears to be under a small black metallic box. However, I cannot get my hose to fit on the fitting I located. Is there another low side fitting or is a fill fitting located somewhere else? Can you help?
JA: Have you checked the Freon level?
Customer: I cannot get my fitting to lock on. I have two different fittings and I can't get them to seat. One plastic one metal.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I removed the cap protector and attempted to place the fill line on the fitting but can't get it to seat.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Is there a special attachment?

The low pressure service gauge port valve is located on the suction accumulator/drier, which is located in the rear, passenger's side of the engine compartment. For an image location view, click here:

Hi! I noticed this thread was still open and you did not leave a rating , so I wanted to check in and see how you made out? Did you find the service port? Did you have any other questions? Was there something I missed that you wanted addressed? If you have no further questions and simply forgot to leave a rating, please take a second and use the stars at the top of the page to rate our Q&A session. Thank-you!
