Question about 1989 Buick Skylark
My guess would be, based on the age of the car, that the compressor is out of oil; meaning it doesn't work. It's not a simple matter of adding oil like to an engine.

Did you replace the schrader valves (the thing in the inside of the A/C service fittings, you need a special tool to remove and install them) before you recharged the system? They are notorious for leaking if they are old.
If you did not, replace those and try again, if it leaks out again with no evidence you most likely have a bad evap core.
And yes, it's a pain in the ****, plan on it taking a 30 pack of bud light and a weekend to do, or one day and a 12 pack if you are good. Just start taking the dash apart, and may the force be with you. It will be behind the glove box

The linear actuator that regulates the blend of air between hot and cold was broken and needed to be replaced. That was my suspicion. Fuses were all good. Relays were all good. Compressor pump cycled. Freon was "proper". Dealership only charged about $400 in parts and labor to confirm my guess.

If you have no Refrigerant in the system,you don't put any in. It will just leak out and pollute the atmosphere.
Go to a repair shop that does A/C work and follows correct EPA standards for working on air conditioning.
You can't do that job at home without proper training and equipment.
