How do you put freon in a 2001 Ford Expedition?

Lately, the air conditioning in my car is running kind of warm. I think it’s because my refrigerant is low. I’d like to replace it before it starts getting too hot since I live in Arizona. How can I refill the freon in my 2001 Ford Expedition?

Air conditioning can make or break your driving experience, especially when you live in a hot state like Arizona. Luckily, it’s easy to replace your refrigerant! Follow these steps to refill the freon in your 2001 Ford Expedition:
  • Step 1: Let your car cool for about 20 minutes before you start.
  • Step 2: Open the hood and locate the air conditioner unit next to your battery.
  • Step 3: Take off the cap and put your recharge freon hose in the refill slot.
  • Step 4: Attach the hose to the refill can and gently squeeze the lever to start refilling.
  • Step 5: Replace the cap on the slot and close your hood once you’ve finished refilling.
Congratulations! You just refilled your refrigerant. If your air conditioner is still running hot, bring it to a mechanic. Your car’s air conditioning system is complex, so repairs should be made by trained professionals.
