The good news is R-12 components will run R-134a, The bad news is the system needs to be flushed with nitrogen and the oil replaced, other wise the R-134a will create an acid that will eat away at the system...Other option call around and see if you can find a place that still has R-12 and have it charged. But before you do that the condensor core is located in the front of the radiator, tery taking a hose and flushing it out(low pressure do not use a pressure washer).You may find that the core is dirty and it needs nothing

there is a cheap way to charge your ac...its called retro fit which means converting the system over from r-12 to r134 any parts store should have the kit.it runs about 40-50 bucks its easy to do and you can do it yourself.everything you need comes in there.
