levendoski,
Hello, The suction side is the smaller of the two fittings the high side is larger. Unless you have a A/C machine you can not charge from the high side. The suction side is the larger line the smaller one is the high side. Larger line smaller fitting pressure side bigger fitting.

I am wondering if he bought the wrong coolant.. Back in the R-12 days, they used a smaller fitting, when they switched to R-134A they went to a larger fitting, and as noted, different size fittings to make it harder to mess up.

It is also necessary to get the proper (pump inlet side) fitting, not the high pressure fitting, And I can tell you some auto makers do not make that easy, I have the burns to prove that.
