To recharge your AC unit on a 2000 model Lincoln LS, you need to find the connector port on the air conditioner compressor. This recharge valve is under the engine on the driver’s side in front of the tire and you will need to remove the aluminum protective plate to access the valve.  You may need to jack the car up in order to access the port.

If you don't feel comfortable doing this then you could always get a professional to do it for you.

The Lincoln LS is a mid-size, rear wheel drive sedan which was produced between 1999 and 2006.  It shared a platform with the Jaguar S-Type although there are significant differences between the two, not least in the styling and equipment but also due to the Jaguar being manufactured in Britain.

Prices for the 2000 model ran between $30,000 and $45,000 although these price points were raised in 2006. All Lincoln LS models were manufactured at Ford's Wixom Assembly Plant and about 262,900 were built in total. The LS was designed to appeal to younger drivers who were looking for a luxury sports car.

The chief designer Helmuth Schrader was aiming for an understated and well-proportioned exterior with trapezoidal headlights and rectangular fog lights. The rounded wheel housings were intentionally small to make the wheels appear larger and the signature Lincoln waterfall grille rounds off the look. Its interior is simple and comfortable with large gauges to give a sporty feel and wood accents throughout.

The LS was named Motor Trend's Car of the Year for 2000, and was nominated for the North American Car of the Year award as well.

If your AC system is just a little low you can do this:

But if it has totaly emptied then the job is more complex. The system will have to have all the air sucked out with a vacuum pump and then properly refilled.
