SOURCE: need to put frreon in A/C
hppyeveraftr: There is one other option: It is called "FREEZE 12"
It comes in the same size cans as R-12 did. There is one issue>>> I don't know where in the states you are, but legally, you are not suppose to be able to buy any refrigerants without an IMCA license. This is a license you get after taking a test to show that you have the knowledge of refrigerants and the precautions as well as the laws.
In terms of your A/C, If it doesn't work, first you must find out why. Did you loose refrigerant os is there another reason?
You can remove the cap to the service valve and press the center of the valve and see if there is refrigerant in the system.
You might check and see if there are any shops advertising a/c specials using Freeze-12. The only thing with freeze -12, is it must have it's own recovery station, you don't wan't it mixed with the
R-12 in the recovery station. The two gasses will mix.
The shop can check for leaks for a nominal charge and let you know what it will cost to repair. All I or anyone else can do is take potshot at the cost without more factual information from you.
I will say, changing a system over to 134-A can be expensive unless you are having a repair done, such as a compressor replacement.
When a compressor is replaced, the dryer is replaces and the system is ofter flushed. A system with R-12 uses a mineral oil.
134-A uses ester oil or pag oil which is a special lubricant designed to deal with this new compound refrigerant.
The 134-A high and low fittings are placed onto the present ones and often, the "O" rings are replaces at the places where the lined come together. Toyota's take these conversions very well. and there is little difference in performance you will detect on a Camry.
The A/C works very well.
