The amount should be on the radiator fan shroud.These system hold around 2 lbs.of freon when empty.This also depends on if you have rear a/c or just front a/c.If there is some freon in the system the compressor will cycle more often and the system will not get very cold.The other thing is if there is a leak the freon you put in will eventually leak out.There is a bulletin for a/c leaking from the a/c condenser on these vehicles.I have found a few of these with leaks and they where on the passengers side lower bracket.If you can get the freon with the dye in it then you should use this that way if it leaks out you will be able to check for the leak.Hope this helps and let me know if you need more help.Good luck.

How do i recharge the a/c unit myself? The a/c does not seem to get cold anymore.


To properly recharge the air conditioning you need a vacume pumpand gagues.. Once the system is vacumed down you will know if their is a leek that must be repaired before rechargeing. if their are no leeks you are ready to install 134 refridgerant.
