I don't want this to sound too smart, but if you want to recharge the
air conditioner and don't know where the ac is located, maybe you need
to have someone do it for you. There is some danger involved with gases,
R134a can't be partially recharged like you could with Freon, and you
can over do it without proper gauges and the knowledge to read and
interpret the numbers correctly.

It was no troll. I saw the recharge kit in the store and the directions seem
easy. I just need to know where the AC unit is

R134a was used on some cars in 93 and generally required on 94's. Toyota
changed out mid/late year 1993. The fittings are different so the hoses
used to service them are different. The sticker on the hood will also
say that it is R134a. So as to answer your question, the evaporator is
located in the heater box assembly under the dash, the condenser is in
front of the radiator, the compressor is mounted to the engine,. and the
expansion valve is also in the heater box, at the front end of the high
side line. Now, the plumbing goes from the compressor to the condensor
and drier to the expansion valve and evaporator, and then back to the
compressor. There will be a fitting on the pressure line and another
fitting on the suction line. They are different sizes so that the Darwin
principle doesn't get the tech at a weak moment. R134a is a compounded
gas using discrete molecules in a specific ratio to gain the right
compression and expansion characteristics, so when you have a slow leak
it is necessary to evacuate the system and refill completely, after
you've figured out where the leak was. This is all assuming there is a
leak and that the system is low. You can tell quickly if that or
something else is wrong by looking at the values on your gauges.

A 94 should have R134a. R12 is very easy to get if you are licensed, but
who can afford it?

A 94 Camry still has R12 FREON doesn't it? I thought 95 was
first year for R134a? You can't mix the 2 and you can't buy
a recharge kit anymore for R12 (maybe very opld stock at a

No, 94 was R134a.

Hey, do you smell that? Smells like something died?
Is it dogshit on the bottom of your feet?
Nope, its just Uday and Qusay!
I slept better last night knowing they have assumed
room temperature!
Looking forward to seeing these rotting corpse of these thugs
on TV!

I have a '93 Tercell and I'm pretty sure that was the last year for the old
system, making the '94's the first year for 134a.

LOL!
