If you don't know your way around a refrigerant system get a mechanic to charge it for you. The pressures and temperatures in an operating HVAC system aren't trivial and should not be worked on by inexperienced personnel.

You can check out the website linked below. It isn't difficult to put the refrigerant into your AC system. You will be charging on the low side and depending on which gauge you are using on how to use it. Check out the website and they also have a Tech Support Line to give you detailed answers.

A 1999 Cavalier does not use Freon as a refrigerant.

no, losing the manual would not cause the car to use freon.

Your car uses refrigerant not Freon. Freon is a brand name put out by DuPont. All ac systems use refrigerant often mistakenly called Freon. All of them!!! Check for a decal under the hood or on the compressor for the information you seek. I believe that around 1996 car makers started using R-134A instead of R-12 refrigerant. Hope this helps.

No, Freon is no longer used in vehicles' cooling system. Should you take your car in for maintenance, the mechanic will use a special vacuum to remove and properly dispose of the Freon. The mechanic will then use R-134, a replacement for Freon.
