97 Buick skylark. AC does not blow cold. I added freon but it did not stay in long. What products should I use this time. I only added one 12 oz can & I don't think it was enough

Did you replace the schrader valves (the thing in the inside of the A/C service fittings, you need a special tool to remove and install them) before you recharged the system? They are notorious for leaking if they are old.
If you did not, replace those and try again, if it leaks out again with no evidence you most likely have a bad evap core.
And yes, it's a pain in the ****, plan on it taking a 30 pack of bud light and a weekend to do, or one day and a 12 pack if you are good. Just start taking the dash apart, and may the force be with you. It will be behind the glove box
