Question Need some Help again!!!!!!!!!!!

As you may or may not know I have a 1995 Buick Regal Grand Sport with the 3.8 liter V-6 Tuned port Injection. my question I am throwing out here is does that have the new R-134 Refrigerant/ freon or is that the old R-12. and if so can I use the new stuff with the old. or am I just plain screwed on this 1. so I am asking all the mechanics here who do this stuff day in and day oot. Because the AC is blowing a little to warm for my liking here

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

By mandatory law 94 and newer have R134a freon in their A/C systems (some started earlier). Yours being a 95 has R134a. I use an A/C machine at work, but they sell A/C "refill" kits at auto parts stores (look on YouTube, there may likely be instructions to refill the system).

Should have a label under the hood telling you whats in there. You can also tell by the line connection ports,
R12 will have threads where your charging manifold / gauges connect and R134A will have no threads.
R134A connector looks like a smooth male protrusion with a groove around the top and a schrader / tire valve in the center.

Yours should be 134. They have a clip on fitting where the older R12 fittings were screw on.

The attached photo is for adapters to retrofit but the actual fittings sticking up should be identical to what you find on your AC lines under the hood.
They are two different sizes so you can't accidentally connect a refill kit to the high side and blow the can up in your hand

Never....ever...ever... top-off or refill a system designed for R12 with r134 unless you perform a full flush (including the compressor to remove the Ester based oil), replace the accumulator, and pull a vacuum for at least 2 hours R12 and R134 don't play well together.

Todd, from 94 on Buick used R134. You can put it in yourself. Watch a youtube vid. Get the refill kit. One can will be enough. Cool runnin'!
