first read up on it then read the gauge... theres a cool new kit called "A/C recharging for dummies" at the parts store.. also Everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available, for FREE, in the reference section(make copies of the correct sections) read up and fix it like a PRO! :) good luck-Dave

The only freon available is R134a. Your car most like came with R12. That means it will have to have the system evacuated at a shop, and then be converted to the R134a. Look at the fittings where the freon is to be introduced to the system....if they are screw on, then your car needs to be changed over to the newer refrigerant....if they are quick connects, you simply need to add R134a.
