Bought a can of R134A to recharge, and want to make sure I hook it to the correct port! Is the LOW side port the one that's near the firewall?

Isn't it all the same? I bought the white can that also has yellow dye in it from Walmart, because it has the hose adapter on it too...

Cheaper stuff can have Impurities and poor quality Oil.

Like hemi said! The cheaper stuff doesn't have anything but r134 in it. The more expensive (the stuff in the blue can with the $12 price tag also at Wal-Mart) is better. It has pag oil in it as well, something needed when adding freon to the a/c system. They have another one ( the blue can, Interdynamics) with a hose adapter with included pressure guage. If you haven't used your freon already, I'd suggest you take it back and exchange it for the Interdynamics in the blue can! Here's a link to product http://www.id-usa.com/product......mp;PID=214

The service ports are different sizes, you will only be able to hook up to the correct one.

That's when the pressure gauge comes in to play. You don't want to just 'add' cans, you need a gauge to indicate when enough is enough.
