Go to a shop and have them vacuum the remaining r134 out of the system. Then go home and change it out. Then go back to the shop and have them charge the system back up. You won't have to pay for what they first removed but you will have to pay for the rest and the service. Be aware that if the shop did not diagnose this then the shop will not be responsible if by chance you have another issue.

I have a 1999 mazda protege 1.6L..I'm having problems with the ac not working changed the compressor,and the switch..checked and changed all the fuses...still not working..Help Please

ac units stop working from ,
low gas ( holes in the system)
too much gas ( high pressure from excess gas , blocked , tx valve , condenser fan not working)
ac relay not working ( faulty ac thermostat , faulty relay)
compressor not working( fuse , ac clutch inoperative)
Water in the system ( changing the compressor and not vacuuming down the system for 2 hours to boil of the moisture in the air when the system was opened-- ice in the refrigerant at the tx valve causing a blockage
Wrong gas in use ( lubricant is not compatible with the gas causing problems )
take it to an accredited ac specialist to have it fixed properly before the cost exceeds what you would have paid in the first place by taking it to a professional

I have a 1999 protege and the air conditioner doesn't work. It has been recharged twice and stopped working twice. They have done one major repair of gaskets and seals. It looks like the compressor...

You definitely have an AC leak that has been missed twice. An evaporator is a common problem that is often missed ( not saying that's yours) Take it for a second opinion. if it keeps needing to be recharged its leaking. Its supposed to be a sealed system.
