How to recharge the AC

(1997 Ford Thunderbird)
in Oracle, AZ on December 11, 2009
There is no "blue capped recharge port" on this car. I assume it is a R134 system. There is a black capped port that looks like a recharge port. Can I recharge at that port with an R134 canister?

The factory caps are black not blue. Yes you have a R134A car. To service the car properly you need a gage set that reads low and high side gages. NOT A SINGLE HOSE RECHARGE KIT FROM A DISCOUNT PARTS HOUSE. Only if you like playing russian roulette. You have a leak most likely in the evaporator. This repair is well above your level of expertise.
