Default How do I know if mine has R134 for A/C

Hello everyone,
Sorry it's silly question, but I wanted to know quickly.
I have 1997 Montero SR and how do I know if it's R134?

Since a dealer charge $180 for ac recharge, I'd like to do myself.
If you have any other suggestions, please let me know.

Thank you very much!
Honomatsu

1993 was the last year for R12 in mitsubishi vehicles. you have R134. also have to have proper equipment to charge up a/c system.

Great! Thank you for your reply jgbrules!!

You mentioned "proper equipment", can I just buy one of those universal one? I found a L valve; it seems to be a bit difficult to reach with those uni kit, but I assume that I could reach from underneath.

Again, thank you!
