Default A/C charge in a can

Anyone topped of their freon by buying these charges in a can with a gage? Mine needs a little boost and was wondering if anyone had success? Also where is the low pressure input?

I have used a can or two in the past on my old 97 Dodge and it worked great. The lower pressure input for that was right on the drivers side fender well and was right on the top. Not to sure where it is on yours and I have been lucky not to need one in my 07. I do know that the low pressure line is usually a smaller connector than the high pressure and the can adapter usaully only fits the one, but I can double check for ya.

i have never used them but have heard that they will damage your system because to properly charge an ac system you need two gauges not one but i have no clue about any of this

Default Thanks

I appreciate the responses, better leave it up to the pro's on this one. The right side is muck cooler than the left but has plenty of blower speed.
