Default Where do I put freon in my truck???

I have a 1997 ford ranger witha 4.0 v6 and it's out of freon. When I pop the hood, there is a high or low pressure area by the battery and another in the top left area of the car. I don't know which one is high and which is low pressure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

It needs to go in the suction ( low pressure side). Most low pressure ports are on the accumulator (dryer) which is is round black canister that will be on the passenger side firewall connected to a box that sticks out of the firewall.

Your truck should take 134a but check the cowl tag just to be sure.

Thank you guys for the help. I realized I was trying to connect it to the high pressure one, which made sense why it didn't connect. After I put on the low pressure on the passenger side, it worked just fine and now I'm ready for the summer

They make those fittings different sizes for just that reason. Always be carefull when working with a high pressure system like AC. If you are not carefull the next time you wipe your butt it will be with a hook.
