Question about 1992 Ford Ranger
I am not sure of the proper nomenclature for the union connections on vehicle air condition lines. The connection between the compressor and the condenser seams to be leaking. It loses vaccum pressure when I push on this connection and holds a vaccum when I pull on this connection. This connection looks like a housing for a diaphram with a clip. Is this something that can be repaired with a kit and if so is it very difficult to do?

These are nothing more then standard compression fittings. You can purchase them at most any hardware or automotive parts store. Home depot even carries these types of fittings and tubing. If you are unfamiliar with these types of fittings and tubing the easiest way to get the correct size and type is to remove a section of hose for reference.
You can either replace the whole thing or repair just the damaged portion. Repairing will be easier and cheaper. However you should consider why the line failed. If it's because of wear and age you might want to consider replacing the whole thing.
If you just want to stick with the repair you should consider locating the closest end and repairing from that point. The advantage to this over a repair in the middle of the line is fewer fittings. However if the ends are hard to get to stick with the replacement of the bad section. It should be just a couple unions and a new piece of tubing.

Yes, stop by the parts store and you can buy them there. BE PREPARED for fuel to come out, it is under pressure...Will be okay after released, just be ready. TAPE closed all lines to keep out dirt.
