Didn´t know quite where to put this but I thought the A/C effects the engine so here is fine.

Anyway, the more i get to thinking about it the more I get to liking the idea of an Air conditioned car....right now, it doesn´t work. Only warm air blows out. Last summer, even in 97 degree heat I survived...but with a sweaty back. So....My questions are:

1.) How much to recharge the system?
2.) How much to refill the refrigerant?
3.) What type of refrigerant did a 92 GT use from the factory?
4.) What type is actually legal now?
5.) WHERE is it legal to get this done?
6.) How much for a new A/C Pump, condensor? (I´d like to know both OEM, AND any aftermarket system(s))

I heard from someone that the new refrigerant is called R12, and you have to have it done at a shop with special qualifications to work with the refrigerant. I can do the leg work in finding a shop here in ft wayne to do that, so I just need to know what to tell them specifically so they don´t try to f*&k me over. Thanks in Advance. ;-)

james....i posted a lil bit ago about my ac.. R134a is the refridgerant used to replace r12.

R12 is illegal to use unless its taken to a specialized dealer. W/ systems using r12(which since u have a 92, you have) expect to pay alot of money. Thats why i was so concentrated on tryin to convert my system to r134 since my a/c is already bad which no one really wanted to give me advice on...
Compressors are about 100-200 bucks depending on where u get them.. Condensors are cheap....My opinion...find out how to have a "friend ;-) " do it for you if u got the how to´s and parts for him to do it.

I have a 92 GT and I had my a/c checked for leaks and refilled. It lasted maybe 2 months. I´m wondering if the fuse has any role in this? :-o

ur a/c clutch or compressor is prolly goin bad or the condensor....its illegal unless u go to a shop that has the equipment....ur llookin to spend about 500 to 600 to get it serviced..and about 200 or so to get it recharged.
