All vehicles now need to use 134A. If your Grand Am was not originally equipped to use 134A or has not been converted to use 134A, you'll need to do that now. Freon 12 is effectively, no longer available. * Most vehicles which came with R12 originally can be converted to R134 freon simply by changing a couple fittings and adding the R134 refrigerant. Something to keep in mind, though, is that if your R12 leaked out you will need to fix the leak or whatever you put in will soon disappear!

How does one charge the air conditioner on a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited?

First you need to find out if the system is a 134a system or not. It is then it recharged through the low port using one of those recharge kits from Walmart or Autozone or wherever. The port only fits on one side. If it is not a 134a system then you will have to have the expensive older freon put in or get a retrofit kit. The later is cheaper. Then refill with 134a. If system has been opened up then the system will have to be hooked to a vacuum pump and then filled with the proper amount of refrigerant and oil. Hope this helps.

How do you add refrigerant to 1993 escort?

Your year of Escort takes R 12 refrigerant. It is no longer available in 14 oz cans. It does come in 20 lb. bulk. In 1994 Ford Escorts went to R-134a refrigerant which will not harm the ozone layer. Kits are made to change the earlier systems which take R12 over to R-134a which mainly involves changing the charge ports. You could take it to an A/C shop and they could recharge it with R12 or you could change the ports over and get a kit at the parts place to recharge it yourself. Detailed instructions come with the R134a charge kits.
