The R-134a cans with all the fancy catch your eye graphics and the gauge are all crap, They are overpriced, Contain sealers, paint stripper, and even STOP LEAK. Get a regular 12oz can of Johnsons of other MADE IN USA gas, not Chinese stuff. Its really easy to overcharge the system with a can, I probably did it years past, W/o a manifold gauge set or with a recovery/recharge machine you don't have the tools to do it right.
ALL these cars by now should have new service valves on them, They will and do leak. On Two of my cars here the valves were pulling in outside air when the system was under a vacuum. LOL. Really if you want reliable AC in a car this old. Put all new O rings on it at every connection, Change the valves. Remove the compressor, Drain out the old ****ty 20 year old Pag oil, new Recover driver, Orifice, Flush out the condenser, hoses, and evaporator, Put it all back together, new pag oil, etc
Car still works MOD
