Anyone, I don't think that it has ever been recharged. I did what the manual said, it told me to jump two wired and the compressor kicked on, it says that if it kicks on when you do that that it is low on freon.
You have to take it to a shop. R-12 is not available. The only reliable way to find small leaks is to charge the system with dye/refrigerant mix. Which will only be available for your system at an a/c place.

Like chikin said, you'll have to recharge it to find the leak. Most freon recharge kits come with sealant in the can, so you can try that, but you'll have to COMPLETELY evacuate the R-12 before adding any R-134a. If it's a serious leak, you may end up losing alot of new freon in the process of looking for the leak. I would take it to the shop. (I know, I hate taking my '90 LX in, too.)
Some say that he has trouble getting rid of the rust around his shoulder blades...
...and that he's never learned how to use an automatic transmission...
