How to Charge the AC System for a Chrysler Town & Country

55

The air conditioning system of the Chrysler Town & Country is a sealed system and should never leak refrigerant, unless there is a leak in the system. When a leak or failure of the system occurs, the refrigerant in the air-conditioning system must be recharged. Recharging any R134a air-conditioning system does not require a special certification, unlike R12 Freon, but it does require a charging station to be certain the proper refrigerant levels are achieved. The actual charging process is relatively simple.

Step 1

Open the Town and Country’s hood and look on the rear of the air-conditioning compressor, the pulley-driven component at the bottom, driver’s side of the engine. Trace the thicker of the two lines from the rear of the compressor until you locate the low-pressure service port, a metal valve sticking from the line.
