Default hey guys newbie here with 2 questions to strat :)

hey guys new owner here,with alot of questions on my truck and never owned a dodge before,but just 2 questions to start, so i need ur help, 1st off its a 1997 1500 quadcab, with a 5.2 motor,my 1st question is (keep in mind im not a mechanic) a diagram or explanation of which a/c line is the low pressure port? i need to add freon? and the 2nd question is the drivers window goes up great but coming down,it comes off the track and falls,now ive taken off the panel and see that there r 2 nubs that sit in the track to make it go up and down but theres nothing that hold the nubs in to keep em from popping out as it is lowered, is there suppose to be,or maybe my track needs to be bent closer together to keep em from coming out? tell me how to proceed and i will try it thnx in advance for any and all assistance. troy

Take it to a shop. If you don't know a thing about heating/ac, don't dick around with it. The low pressure line will have the smaller blue cap on it. It's located somewhere from the front to the rear bumper. Also, if you need to add freon to it, that means you have a leak. The reason I say take it to a shop is: they have ac machines that read the high pressure and low pressure side of the system. Judging on that, it tells you whether the compressor is bad etc.

So you ask for advice, good advice is given, and you ignore it and do what you want anyway. Why did you even bother wasting our time by asking?

The problem with the leak is more than it just letting out Refrigerant, it's letting in moisture, and an eye drop of moisture can ruin your shit.
