R12 but its not available anymore so use R134 ,it will work ok but not be as cold as the radiator is too small to cool the gas properly ,but it will work i promise ,you will need an adaptor to fill the older system though and the gas will mix with the R 12 so ignore the so called technical salemans stuff to sell you a retrofit kit ,it does work because i do it often on older american cars that collectors have here in spain .

My air compressor is completely locked up, NOT turning at ALL on my 1989 chevy caprice? Could this be cause by no or low freon??

Hello: The system is probably low on freon and if so there probably is a leak and the oil leaked out of the system. The compressor may have locked up due to lack of lubrication. For proper repair you will need to replace the compressor, orifice, accumulator and also determine and repair the leak.

Hood cable broke on a 1993 chevy caprice . And now when i use pliers of any type it acts like its in a bind or stuck and will not pop open . Is there a way to open hood from out side the car ? Any help...

You can see where the cable goes from under the car. You can apply some pressure to the hood and release it with your fingers. This is such a pain in the ****. the cable usually costs around $30.00 And is not hard to replace.

My 1986 chevy caprice a/c compressor doesnt have

the power comes from the panel inside, to a hi press and a low press switch out in the engine bay. The suction safty or low press switch is locateded on the accumlator tank right at the fire wall on the passenger side. Check this switch BUT she is probabaly out of freon, or very low. Get a can and ck that first.
