It could be moisture in the lines and causing the accumulator to freeze. take it to a professional as your car is old enough to have the R12 refridgerent and is illegal to let it out in the air

I must agree with Mr Evolution, the R-12 should not be released without capturing it properly. Not only is it the law, and I am by no means an environment crusader, tree-hugger but the stuff really is bad and that law is in place for a reason
