    Most of the time their will be a sticker on your ac components where on is written how much R134a has to be in system.
    Don`t put in to much it will not work well than, it`s the same if you put to little in it.

    I just took my truck into be serviced and re-charged, they told me any system takes somewhere between 2 to 3 cans. It just depends on the size of vehicle...There should be a sticker on the a/c unit to let you know how much exactly... Just make sure you really need the 134 and it isn't an older unit w/r12 in it. Then you need the whole conversion...which you can get at Pep Boys or any auto parts store. Good luck

    your blazer's a/c system should require 3.12 lb of refrigerant..per the label on the unit.
    This is if it's completely empty.

    for 134A, you need to put a little less in (like 3 lb) as the head pressure on the high side will get rather high when you don't have a lot of airflow over the evap. coil. as 134 has some different properties than R12

    My 86 says 3.25 lbs of freon, so three cans ought to do you.
