any autozone or orileys has the kits
I've seen the combination R-134/Oil/Dye/Sealant cans at Wal-Mart. One can typically runs around $15 USD. I'd suggest one of the combination cans, and one or two of strictly coolant, depending on the required pressure. Kits including the required hose, pressure gauge, oil, sealant, refrigerant, and dye run $27 USD plus tax at Wal-Mart, as well.
R134 is used, but have the leak fixed first.
It came from the factory with R12. Due to the cost of R12 I suggest you have it converted to run on R134. Have the leak fixed and convert it to R134 and save yourself some big money. R12 is no longer in production, and is very, very, expensive.
The 1992 GMC Suburban came from the factory with R12 not R134. Unless it is has been converted to use R134 you cannot simply add R134. If it has been converted you need to have the leak fixed before adding anything. It is illegal to add refrigerant to any system without first repairing the leak. How much it will hold depends on how much leaked out.
First, your 1998 Mercury contains no Freon which is R12. It contains R-134 refrigerant. You add R134 at the low pressure port. But the fact that you need to add R134 indicates you have a leak. It is illegal to add refrigerant to a system with a leak without first repairing the leak. Seek professional help and have the leak repaired.
Enough to recharge the system after the leak is repaired and no more.
FREON (R12) was banned beginning in 1996. Your vehicle contains R134, and as to how much. I suggest you seek a professional to repair the leak and recharge the system, as it is illegal to install refrigerant without repairing the leak.FREON (R12) was banned beginning in 1996.

There is a leak somewhere in the air conditioning system. Mechanic shops have a special dye they can add to the system to find the leak.
There are plenty of different epoxies on the market, use one of those. Advance auto parts has a lot of them.
Perhaps you better not. In some states it is illegal to work on auto A/C if you are not certified. High pressure gas can freeze body parts.
recover all r134 a and do a vacum test and if leak inject die with r 134 a and run for a day or to and check with black light
No, unless you have a refrigerant leak.
Your car contains no Freon R12, it contains R134 which is not Freon. If you need to add refrigerant then you have a leak. It is illegal to add refrigerant without first repairing the leak. Take it to a professional and get the leak repaired.
Don't. R12 is so very expensive that you should have your vehicle converted over to use R134. You have a leak or you would be needing to add refrigerant. Have the leak repaired by a professional and have the system converted over to R134. The will remove all R12 & the oil from the system and replace it with R134 & the correct oil. They should pay you for the R12 due to how valuable it is. You may end up spending very little on this repair.
so air won't leak out of the ball before you even use it.
You do not want to buy Freon as it is very, very, expensive. Have the leak repaired, the system purged of all Freon R12 and the oil. Have it converted over to R134 refrigerant. You cannot just add R134 as the oil used in R12 is not compatible with R134. You will be money ahead by converting it.
Have the leak repaired and have it converted to use R134.
It contains no Freon. It contains R134 Refrigerant. If it is low, that means it has a leak. It is illegal to add refrigerant without first repairing the leak. Take it to a professional for repair and recharge.
First off if it is low of refrigerant then it has a leak. It is illegal to add refrigerant to a A/C system without first repairing the leak. You have neither the tools nor the skill to repair the leak, and to add the correct amount of refrigerant. Take it to a professional shop with the proper equipment and knowledge to repair the system correctly.
Wet passenger flood is caused by either a leak in the air conditioning drain line or a leak in the windshield sealant or a coolant leak coming from the heater core.
ALSO, Keep in mind that your coolant system is designed to be pressurized. When it is under pressure the coolant can work very efficiently to keep your engine at operating temp. If you have a small leak, even a pinhole (or head gasket leak etc.) your engine will easyily overheat because the "boiling temperature" of the coolant is significantly decreased when its not pressurized. For example when the coolant is pressurized it can withstand about 270 degrees, but when not pressurized it can maybe withstand 230 degrees.
Not yet. Most parts stores do sell a R134a "stop leak"
You have to find the leak and repair or replace the leaking part. The normal methods for leak detection are with a ultra voilet dye and a black light, or a electric leak detector ( sniffer )
The cost for an air conditioning service and R134a recharge for a Toyota 2001 is based on three factors. First, air conditioning systems are sealed, and the need for a recharge is indicative of a leak and or component failure (compressor, condenser, etc.). A charge may be required to leak test the system with ultraviolet dye to isolate the leak. The charges may and can include the labor fee for diagnosis, parts and refrigerant (per pound), and shop supplies. The only means to know for certain are the request a written estimate first. This can allow for you to comparison shop parts and labor rates throughout your market.
