Freon (R12) is a refrigerant that started being phased out in the early 90s. The last I knew it was selling for about $50.00 a pound and a car usually takes about 2 pounds. So a simple evacuation, then recharge may cost about $150.00. This however probably wouldn't include diagnosis of the reason why it needs recharging in the first place (ie a leak) so replacing alone will most likely lead to another trip to the garage to charge it and actually find the leak. If the car is 1992 or newer it will almost definitely be equipt with the new refrigerant R134 which costs about $18.00 a pound making the repair that much cheaper. Also if it is equipt with an R12 system the best recomendation is to have it retrofitted to R134. A simple and fairly inexpensive job.

How much does it cost to change over from R12 to R134A freon?

Depends on how extensive a conversion you want to do. If you want to a complete conversion and replace just about everything, the cost will be in the thousands. For considerably less, you can replace the refrigerant oil, replace the hose fittings, and replace the metering device. Another alternative is to switch to R414b, which is claimed to be able to replace (read: replace, not be blended with) R12 without a need for changing oil or components.
