For all of you with R12 stock A/C Civics (pre-1994)....How did you convert to the R134a (since R12 was discontinued in 1994) and how much was it? Can I do it myself (the conversion, not the recharging)
the changeover kits are sold pretty much everywhere, i think Walmart even carries them. comes with new oil for the compressor and a little bottle of freon, along with all the chit you need to do it. yes you can do it yourself, not very hard. i think the kit is like $35
but people have been saying for years that you need to change the oil in the compressor or when you change over it will go to shit. but they are finding out now that it really isnt necessary, all you have to do is have your r12 recovered and then jus add the r134 freon and viola! it works.
