I need to recharge my AC refrigerant. I believe the 97 uses r134a. However, I cannot find a recharge port with a blue cap. I found a port with a black cap that appears to be the recharge port but don't want to do anything until I am sure..

Does the 97 use R134A?

Is the port with the black cap (passenger side near side of radiator) the recharge port?

Thanks!

Kent
