Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
Sounds like your A/C is still using the older R-12 system, and must be converted to the R134a system. The parts store can sell you an adapter kit to convert the connections, but more often then not you will need to have the system evacuated, flushed, the reed valve checked for blockage and then recharged with R-134a. It does not matter which oil, either ether or PAG is used as R-134a will accept both. But you will need to follow the charge level chart under your hood to make sure you get the proper levels or oil vs refrigerant. If you are going to do this yourself you will also need to get your hands on a vacuum pump, once you crack the system open to flush it you will need to bring is back to -30psi before filling again.
