A 96 vehicle should use 134A refrigerant rather than freon. You'll need an installation kit with a gauge. The low pressure side is near the receiver/dryer. The receiver/dryer is a metal device that looks like a can. The low side "port" should be closeby. Connect the gauge to the port and make sure the pressure doesn't go too high when you add refrigerant. Make sure the AC is running as you add refrigerant and as you get closer to the proper pressure, slow down the flow from the can by closing the valve at the can. Follow the directions on the kit and it shouldn't be too difficult. Note that if the AC system has completely leaked out all refrigerant, you will need to have the system repaired and evacuated to remove all air and moisture from the system.
