also, be surre surre surre that you have totally blown and flushed all traces of mineral oil from the evaporator, condenser and all freon lines. also replace the expansion valve and reciever/drier. now, once you have done all that, buy some real R12 and put it back the way it was. don't cheap out, 134a is junk in this system. it will not cool well, it will kill the compressor. just go back with 12.
