What kind of refrigerant goes into a 1989 Dodge Dakota?

Vehicles of that vintage originally used Freon 12, BUT, you can easily convert to 134-A. You'll need to have someone evacuate any remaining freon from your system and remove any of the oil. Some of the oil used in Freon 12 systems is reported to be incompatable with the 134-A refrigerant, but I actually haven't encoutered any. You'll need the adapter connections, but they're relatively inexpensive at most auto parts retailers, then you'll need a can of oil charge and however many additional cans your Dakota will need.
