Use 134A and if you're handy you can do it yourself.

Just remember, there's a reason you lost freon in the first place. At the auto parts store you can buy 134A with dye in it to see where your system is leaking.

Right, I always leave the AC to the pro's. Due to finding the leaks, reapiring them and evacuating the system and charging properly. With the cans you will have cold for a short amount of time before it all leaks out again.

Yeah. I live in the Philippines and A/C is a must!

All cars from 1994 and up use R134A. from 1993 and down is R12 which no one sales any more.
