Asked in 1995-2005 Chevy Cavaliers
Can you recharge the freon in your 1995 cavalier?
Freon R12 refrigerant is so very expensive that I recommend you have the A/C converted to R134a. But first you must have the leak repaired. The shop will then remove any R12 left in the system, flush the system to remove the old oil, install fresh oil that is compatible with R134a, and charge the system. If there is any R12 left they may pay you to recover it. ...

How much freon do i put in a 1987 corvette that's been retrofitted?
When retrofitting a system with R134a refrigerant that was originally R12, it usually takes just a little less R134a than the original R12 did. Look for the sticker in the engine compartment or consult the owners manual for the original amount of R12 the system took. Then recharge with a few ounces less of the R134a. Also monitor the pressures during the process for reference. ...

Asked in Air Conditioning and Coolant, Geo Prizm
What kind of refrigerant goes in a 1995 geo prizm air conditioner?
A 95 should use R134a. The schrader valves will tell you - if they're threaded on the outside, they're for an R12 system (in which case, if you're not the original owner, I'd recommend you do a system purity test to see if it's still using R12 or if it was retrofitted for R134a). If they're the quick connect type, they'll be for an R134a system. ...

What refrigerant is used in a 1973 eldorado?
The original refrigerant installed at the factory in 1973 was R12 (Freon). If it has not been converted to R134a, I suggest you convert it now, if it is leaking and needs repair. R12 is no longer in production and the dwindling supply is very expensive. Much cheaper to convert it to R134a. ...
