1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass 6 cyl Automatic

The mechanic told me that I have a freon leak and they patch it up it always starts to leak again and they told me to just keep coming back and they will keep patching it up. Being that I do not want to pay them every time is there a way to put the stuff in myself and add freon. I am a complete beginner so if you are going to be nice and answer please explain everything from what type should I get to how exactly to put the freon in, I really cant afford to mess up my car. Thanks so much

I have a 1995 oldsmobile cutlass ciera S

First I need to know if it has been converted to 134a. If so, you can buy charge kits at just about any auto parts store and they have complete charging instructions included. It is fairly simple to do. Did they ever tell you what was leaking? Just curious what kind of refrigerant leak they can temporarily "patch".

I am not sure if it has been converted. They just told me that I have a freon leak and its bad that they cannot guarantee that it will stay sealed

Ask them exactly what is leaking. If you paid to have it looked at then you deserve an answer. If ti is leaking that bad, might want to consider having it fixed instead of pumping chemicals out into the air. Do the fittings look like a schrader valve on a tire or are they bigger in diameter and without threads on the outside?
