Is your AC system retrofit to 134?

Dunno if R12 is still available, which probably don't exist anymore-you need to have it retrofitted

No, you need to have it retrofitted, meaning changing the accumulator or the receiver/dryer to use the R134a or use an alternative refrigerants on the existing unit-
