From my Experience, Can Charging a low system sucks, You usually wind up OVER CHARGING IT, and some people who I know who have done it, Also overcharged theirs ( I o/c mine by 5oz once, Not horrible) Alot of those FANCY R-134a cans with the colorful labels and the charging hose with the gauge have crap additives in it, opposed to the USA (not Chinese like walmart sells) 12oz R-134a cans.
You probably have a leak, Or you could of overcharged the system and (could of) cooked the compressor. The System on these cars is kinda on the small side, 1lb 12oz, so its easy to put too much in.
Check the Service valves for leaks (Remove the caps on both the high and loe side) Check every switch connection, O ring connections, Condenser, And the compressor, (shaft seal and check the case seals) Yea the Evaporator could leak too, PITA to get to that w/o major disassembly.
