How much freon does a 1986 Toyota supra hold

Your vehicle is old and uses R-12 refrigerant. The handling, importation, exportation, sale and use of R-12 has been outlawed by the U.S. EPA in Section 609. The only exception to this is for those who are EPA 609 certified. Even at that, R-12 currently costs about $6,000 for a 30-pound can (about $200 a pound).

With that being said, unless you find a repair manual from pre-1991, you will not be able to find the R-12 spec - only directions for R134a retrofit and the spec for that.

If your system is R134A retrofitted, let me know and I can give you the specification for that.

Cannot get back bolt off starter to change out on the 1986 1/2 toyota supra. What tool would do it cause I cannot reach

use to work for toyota, some are very hard to remove! if you have a very long extension and swivel with the right socket, you should be able to remove it by coming in underneath from the drivers side.
