Modern auto A/C sytems use R134a refridgerant not freon or R12. Add refridgerant to your system by accessing the "low side" fitting. It is located on the accumulator/drier near the firewall on the passenger side. The high side is near the battery on the driver side. There is no way to get them mixed up because the fittings are different sizes.

What does the a stand for in R134a?

The "a" in R134a is an indicator. There are two gases that are similar R134 and R134a. They both have the same chemical make up which is 2 hydrogen, 2 carbon and 4 fluorine. However in R134 all of the elements stay separated in a gaseous state. In R134a the elements combine together in different ways. Two hydrogens can be bonded with 4 fluorines or 2 carbons with 4 fluorines, etc. Lower case letters are the "organization" of the molecules and upper case letters are the different blends of the refridgerant.
