you can have it retrofitted at any garage that services a/c systems for around $200 - $300

The price varies as to the part of country you live in. Call a couple of local garages for estimates/ Retrofitting to the new freon is cheaper than charging with the old freon.

How do you refill a 1988 Chevy van with freon?

Unfortunately, if the air conditioning system is factory original and has not been converted to use the new R-134a refrigerant, you cannot refill the system yourself. R-12 refrigerant is the old stuff, it must be charged by a professional and will be very expensive. They quit making it almost 15 years ago. Depending on your location is could cost upwards of $300 to get it recharged, and if the system is low then you probably have a leak somewhere so that might be $300 out the proverbial window. If you plan on keeping the van, I would suggest that you convert the system to R-134a. A local air conditioning shop can do this for you. I will cost more than just a refill of R-12, but in the long run, it will be much cheaper as the refrigerant is MUCH less expensive should a leak develop.

You refrigeration system charge is low causing the low pressure switch to shut the compressor off and on. You will probably find you have a small leak somewhere in the system. Check for leaks around the front condenser coil and around the compressor for wet oily spots. Have the air conditioning system recharged, but if it is leaking, the problem will return.
