not supposed to it will contaminate the system. you need to have the r12 evacuated and vaccumm the system and buy a 134a retrofit kit with the oil, freo and fittings. still your taking a chance on ruining it.id save some money and have r12 put back in. its only like 35 bucks a can, if you can get a liceanced buyer.

i have a friend who mixed r-12 and 134-a and said it worked but in my opinion is it worth it i mean u take a chance of messing up ur a/c just to save a few bucksand if mess it up u end up spending poss. 100.00 to 200.00 bucks to fix it and then u will still have to charge it just spend the couple extra bucks it will be worth it gud luck homie :biggrin:

Yes you can, they are both FREON, just different grades, r-12 will actually be colder then r-134a , but you really should not combine them.

To actually put in R134 you have to change the fittings (actually you just screw on an adapter to the low side line) so, if you have to put the adpater on to put in R134, there's no reason to not do it right and let all the R12 out and put in the R134 oil and refridgerant.

The R134a sucks!!! Doesn't get near as cold as R12. Wouldn't advise mixin them cause a friend did it in his 84 regal now he has to replace the whole a/c system.

you could look for a product that works "safely" according to the manufacturer with R-12 freon if you still have some old stuff in it. I think its called DuraCool or something but I'm not sure where to get it. Its cheaper (more along the prices of 134)

NO I REPEAT NO YOU CAN NOT MIX THE TWO TOGETHER IF YOU DO YOUR WHOLR SYSTEM WILL FAIL AND ALL NEW COMPONENTS WILL BE NEEDED. I KNOW BECAUSE I AM A AUTOMOTIVE TECH AND I WORK ON A/C SYSTEMS EVERYDAY AND I SEEN WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MIXED. UNLESS YOU HAVE ABOUT 1,000 DOLLARS PLUS FREON I WOULDN'T DO IT :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono:
