Since it was discovered that Freon (R-12) was harmful to the earth's Ozone layer, it's been phased out for automotive use, and replaced with the slightly less efficient, but harmless R-134a refrigerant.
-----
Since the conversion to R-134a started in the early 90s, I suspect your Mitsubishi uses only that.

BTW, if R-134a is 'harmless' why do the large refill bottles, similar to that used for propane, have a warning on them clearly stating that the contents are 'known to cause damage to the ozone layer?'

There is a lot of speculation that DuPont wanted something new to sell.
Our government nearly dried up the market as the 'ban' went into effect by buying huge stores of R-12 before it was taken off of the market.

1999 mitsubishi montero sport where do you put in freon


Best to buy a manual for this one or have shop do it for you. The AC system can be quite dangerous if done incorrectly. There is a high pressure and low pressure AC line and you don't want to make the mistake of choosing the wrong one.

My air conditioning blows weak air


Check to see if the AC compressor is cycling or kicking in only for a short few seconds.That's low freon indication,and you need to recharge. don-ohio

Where do I add freon ?


If you have to ask that question, you don't have the equipment, (gauges, etc) to be able to safely recharge your AC circuit in your 1993 Buick Regal!

Sorry to be blunt, but you could cause more problems than you would fix if you try to do it yourself.
Do you know what freon is in the system now? You have to recharge with the same type and since you have an older car you probably have old type in it, which means you have to evacuate the system and capture the freon (and dispose of it) and then recharge with the right amount of new type freon.
