Unless your Skylark has been converted to R134a it's a R12 system. There's 2 products you can use. Freeze 12 or R12a. Both are drop in replacements for the old, unavailable, R12. You'll use the low side service port located on the accumulator. The accumulator is the large metal can looking thing on the passenger's side of the engine compartment near the firewall. The service port may still have the blue plastic dust cover on it. Remove the dust cover to charge it. HTH. - Jim

I have the same issue, trying to charge the a/c for the same car using aftermarket r134a cans however I don't see a/c clutch is engaging when I turn on the a/c, without it won't take the gas in, any idea how to engage the a/c?, I tried to short the red and white cable on high pressure port switch but it only engage the clutch for like 2 seconds.
