Hopefully you put some in when you fixed it?

I bought an small aerosol can that had 5 shots of dye with a fitting for the low side port (apply for 2 secs to get a shot) - this is how I was able to see my ports were leaking ...fixed now of course (thanks again Pim!)

Where is that valve located on a 94? Can't say I remember dealing with one, but I only dealt with trinary switch, ports, condenser, dryer and o-rings when I fixed mine.
