It has 134a for sure. should say on the Receiver dehydrator or on the compressor. I'm sure it has 134a unless someone has reversed it back to R-12, which is very unlikely...

Add freon 134a

R12 freon has not been used in production cars sold in the USA since 1994. So your Impala has R134.

What type of refrigerant does a 1990 Ford Ranger use?

there are only two types of refrigerant (or normally called as freon): R12 and R134. R12 is designed for car model 2000 and below. though, some old car compressors can accomodate R134 provided that you change your auxillary fan (fan for your aircon condenser) since R134 is hotter than R12. Ask an aircon technician if your compressor can be charged with R134.

Most of the countries now ban the use of R12 since it is more harmful to our ozone.

look at the connection fitting as this was the change over period from R12 to R134 the latter of which will work of sorts but as well on the earlier system but R12 is now prohibited from sale as too polutant

I'm trying to find out what kind of air conditioner coolant goes in a 1986 chevy cavalier, and how to refill it

it takes R12 freon, but R12 is no longer made because it damaged the Ozone layer, so u must have a automtive repair shop convert the R12 system to the newer R134, this is fairly expensive, about $200

How do I recharge the AC freon on my own?

You should have R12 freon in a 1990 but you can put R134 freon into that system the only problem your going to have is the adapter for R12 is different from R134 after you get the adapter you need to put the freon in the low pressure valve not the high pressure, you will know which one because the adapter only fits the low pressure valve which is located on your AC lines under your hood, theres a little cap thats either blue or black you unscrew. You can't buy r12 anymore because its not good for enviorment so buy R134. you can buy at any parts store for like $5 to $10.
