You need to locate the low port on the AC.
You recharge the AC connecting to the low port.
You find the AC low pressure at the top of the compressor. Near the compressor you find two ports, the high port and low port.
You can follow the compressor line to reach the port.
To find out which one is the low port, run the air conditioner for a couple of minutes withthe engine on.
Then turn off the care and touch the lines from compressor to the two ports , often covered with plastic caps. Only one of the pipes will be cold, the line that is cold will lead you to the low port.

SOURCE: add refrigerant
is the system empty? the common leak on this engine is the AC compressor front shaft seal, the charging port is about center of the firewall on the larger of the two AC lines, the system holds 1.88 (21/4 12 ounce cans) pounds of R134

You should never attempt to replace refrigerant unless being certified. R134A is very toxic not only to yourself but to the environment if not properly added. Spend the money and take it to a repair shop, its cheap.

You will find the low presser service port on the A/C accumulator which is located on the frame, driver's side. Just follow the low A/C line from the compressor to the Accumulator and you'll be good to go. Here s a link to help you find it.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

R-134a should be used, but you should also put the kind that has more oil than normal so that your compressor and all gets oiled.
