where under the hood is air conditioning on 1991 legacy
What part? There is the compressor, electrical connections, hoses, accumulator, and condenser, etc. AC work is best performed by the professionals.
I've been told I can make a simple adaption with "tips" from Walmart so I can use freon in my a/c instead of R12. I am getting and no one seems to be able to even check the a/c to see what the problem is. I don't want to spend a lot of money as the car is going to have to go soon. It's been very good to me until last year. It even has the original exhaust system. Thanks for any help.
Ok, so you are going to do a conversion to the new R134a. the old R12 , if any left has to be evacuated by a professional, and new R134a will need to be installed with the proper oil and some replace the O-Rings so it doesn't leak out. A pro will also get the correct pressures in the system so it works properly. It will cost you a couple hundred to do it. Since your car is going soon, consider not doing it.
