Having problems with your 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme ?
A/c not blowing cold
\015 What kind of freon is needed for an Olds Cutlas 92; how is it recharged.\015
It takes R12 from the factory. The charge ports are located under the air cleaner housing on the right side. You can see them, but to service them you need to loosen the air cleaner housing, two bolts, and remove it or get it out of the way. If you want to charge it, or just "top it off" yourself you can get a kit off of ebay that has the hoses you need. Some sellers won't sell the R12 unless you have a license. I bought the R12 off of a seller on craigslist and the hose from ebay separately and saved a ton of money because I know my car well. But if there's anything wrong with your car, I highly recommend taking in to a garage like Firestone and have them look at it and/or do the work. If you don't know the history of the car, it may have been converted to R134- look for any stickers in the engine compartment indicating this. You don't want to mix different kinds of refrigerants. If there are leaks, bad circuits or components, diagnosing or repairing an A/C system is complicated and an expert is going to have to work on it. Take it to Firestone, they can do R12. R12 works much better than R134. R134 pollutes just as much and even more prone to leaking so don't feel guilty about using R12. It's not worth the expense of converting it and you wont' be satisfied with the results because it won't get cold enough.
