Ok, the service port should? still have a blue cap on it, if not? sometimes they get lost. no biggy,. I have included a couple links to location pictures, The first pic it is #10 shown, Now, if any trouble finding>? the LOW side port in which you had freon is ALWAYS in the large diameter line or fatter line leaving the compressor, so,, if you find the large diameter line at compressor, and trace form there to the port. That is the suction line, The smaller line is the high pressure line. You add freon to the suction line / fatter diameter line. here are the picture links. Now, if usinga recharge can with guage? then run engine, turn AC on, hook up charger can hose, start adding till in the green zone. if NO guage? then this is hard without knowing how low but usually 1/2 lb adding is average

Please remember to leave a service rating for my service I have provided, You CAN still come back to this same post after rating my service for any followups. Thanks Randall
