Recharging the freon in your Ford is also known as recharging the air conditioner. This is a part of standard auto maintenance. Over time, freon levels may drop and cause the air conditioner to lose power. Therefore, cold air will stop blowing through the vents in your truck.

The process of charging an air conditioner is pretty straightforward and similar for most makes, models and years of automobiles. With a few simple steps, your AC can be functioning normally and ready for any hot day.

Step 1

Wait at least 30 minutes after the last drive before working on the air conditioner. The engine will need to be cool.
