The 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme uses R12 freon and needs 36 ounces. R12 is no longer being made, but is still being recycled and is still available through online auctions.

Low pressure line Larger line running from compressor

The 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme holds 32 ounces of refrigerant. These models require R-134a Freon. This was used for all Cutlasses from 1994 to 1996.

R12 if Factory and if someone retro-fitted it, there should be a sticker signifying the charge with R134. Best to take it to a shop with an ID capable machine (they'll bill you for the labor)

A 1995 Cutlass Supreme should use R12 freon. The fittings are different between R12 and R134 so that they can not be accidentally swapped.

R134a is the only freon for cars after 1994. Earlier cars can be retrofitted to R134a.

Why do you want to change the Freon? Not necessary and very expensive.

The freon input point on a 1994 Olds Cutlass 3100 V6 is located behind the air filter box assembly.

General Motors changed their passenger cars in 1992 or 1993 so you can be pretty sure that it is R134a. My 1995 CS uses R134a.

front drivers side of motor you can follow your lines back from the condensor

The freon port is located under the air filter box which is located near the battery on the drivers side. It should be filled in the low side of the ac syatem r-134a adapter should be used and only be able to fit the correct port.

If the air conditioning unit in question has not been retrofitted or changed, it should take R12 Freon. However, if it has been replaced or upgraded, it may take R134A.

buy an a/c refill kit (freon and a filler hose) at auto parts store. follow directions on can. if you can read, you can do it.

The Freon is added through the low side ac port. A pressure gauge is used to show when the system is full. Follow the Freon can directions closely.

None, the refrigerant is R134a not Freon which is R12.

Unless it has been converted to R134, the OEM refrigerant installed in 1991 was R12 Freon. I suggest you have it converted to R134 if it has not already been done.

It came from the factory with R12 Freon. Due to the high cost of R12, I suggest you convert it over to R134. Any good A/C shop can do this. Remember, it is illegal to release refrigerant into the atmosphere. It is also illegal to add refrigerant to a system with a leak without first repairing the leak.

not dure if this will help but when i charge a unit either low or complete charge,the jug is weighed before the charge and after to see the weight of freon

.You can remove the air conditioner compressor, from your Oldsmobile automobile, by removing the compressor belt. Remove the air conditioning Freon. Remove the Freon lines. Remove the retaining bolts

Its too old and you'd most likely have to take it to a mechanic to have them drain the old freon, which is illegal to drain yourself due to bad fumes for the atmosphere and they'll replace it with I believe RA12 or something of the sort. If the pump/hose is bad they'll have to replace that too to ensure no problems with the new freon. I'm actually about to do it on my '87 Calais here very soon.

A 1982 Oldsmobile was built to use R12, it would need retrofitted to R134a..
