That green cap is the low end A/C port. I don't know exactly what it is called, but that is where you connect to charge the lines with refrigerant.

thanks Nightflyer, but looking at it again, its not part of the AC system. (the AC low-side port is on an Aluminum line under this object)

any other ideas?

thanks a lot Mr FordTaurus.

really?

i was hearing a hissing (air) noise from it - air was being pumped through it at high pressure, checked and saw that one of its 2 round "ports" was cracked. didn't even smell fuel there, maybe my nose is off duty :lol: .

the crack must have happened when we did the Trans swap.

luckily, i have a spare one in hand from the donor '05 car.

thanks again.

I was going to say it was the doohickey that gets in your way while trying to check the freon pressure on the low side. :lol:
