If the AC compressor isn't engaged and pumping when the engine is running then it won't accept a charge unless the system has been vacuumed. Its old enough to have many issues.

Take a very small screwdriver and try to depress the service port valve stem gently. It's exactly like the valve stem on your tire. You should hear a hiss when you depress the valve stem. If so it's open and then you can try again with the refrigerant. But it is possible that a previous owner put a sealant in the system and the valve is sealed shut. You should also be ok with the R134a refrigerant. I believe at GM 1994 and newer is R134a. HTH. -Jim
