Ok, few questions. First, location. Is place where I attach the hose on a line that runs from tire to tire but then heads towards the firewall about halfway through the car? How many ounces of fluid should I get? And finally, what pressure does it get recharged to?

Yes the low-side port is down by the firewall on the passenger side of the car, kind of in the area below the alternator. I just picked up one of those self recharge kits from the parts store, it only took part of one can for me but it will depend on each car. They come with pressure gauges on them and instructions.. just get one with a long enough hose to get past the alternator
