because when you get blockage in the evap technically your temps should go down, sometimes on residential units to the point of freezing, the condenser on the other hand if its blocked you have a lack of cooling temps(higher) and capacity

I was able to get a set of gauges and have located the high pressure service port on the right front corner. However, where is the low pressure port? I've traced both hoses from the compressor all the way to the firewall and I only see 2 ports, both on the same hose (see attached). One has interior threads and is on the expected high pressure fitting.

I also have been reading in another thread that the Bonne'* have a higher pressure than some of its counterparts. Does anyone have the temperature/pressure chart that covers the 2001?

Thanks for setting me straight.
so which one is the low service port. the one on the right or left?

It should be the one marked with a 'L', and be the smaller of the two. It could also be blue. If memory serves, the one closest to the firewall is it.
