If it was converted professionally to R134 then just go to wal-mart and buy a recharge kit. They're easy as hell to use and pretty well bullet-proof. Most even come with easy to use quick-connect connections to make it evebn easier.

never charge a system without properly evacuating it first. Make sure system holds a deep vacuum, then charge.

no. You have two options to test vacuum.

One, the best, go to a shop and have them put vac on it and see if it holds.

Two, buy the wally world charge kit. It comes with a guage. Fill the system according to the manual included with the kit, and check the pressure periodically over the next 60 days. If the pressure does not go down by then, it probably wont and you're probably fine.

Of course you have to ask yourself why it leaked its freon.
