I'm sorry but if you are asking this kind of question you really should not attempt this yourself. I would suggest taking the vehicle to a qualified repair shop. If you are interesting in knowing how to do this, take a course in automotive repair. Also look at ASE A/C recovery and recycling tests.

well if you have some auto experience you can buy a kit to recharge the system at an auto parts store.you should buy a manuel for your car and follow it. Provided you have no leaks recharging the system is not hard to do. Some kits don't cover all cars so a fitting may be need to do your car. the auto parts store is the place to start.

I'd try calling around to A/C repair shops and you should find one that will not just recharge it for you but check the system for A/C leaks bec many vehicles that age have A/C leaks. Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way many auto part shops now carry A/C refill kits that come with instructions but I highly suggest you get a pro to do it and if not then buy a service manual for your car or on car A/C systems.

Go to autozone and ask for a can of: R134-A. Make sure to get a can with hoses and a gauge. Don't let the pressure build up to much. make sure you hook it into the right connection. Its the metal hoses right by the radiator. Go online to www.autozone.com or www.orileyauto parts.com. They will help explain it to you. I can do it and i am a 22 yr old female. I have the same car as you do a 97 Honda. good luck
