I am not the original owner. I know the refrigerant is low but I'm not sure what type to use R134 or R12? Could you guide me to the right place or give me the correct answer I don't see anything under the hood about it? Thanks Steve

I took off the IAC valve to clean it and it was not dirty. I cleaned it and replaced it. Then l took out and checked the air filter. It is okay. Also the transmission has started changing out after running up to high rpms. Could this be overdrive issues? Would overdrive issues stall an automatic transmission and kill the motor? Also if l am driving and keep my foot on the gas and let the motor run above 1800 rpms it stays running, but if l take my foot off of the gas it goes dead even driving down the road at highway speeds. Also if l slow down and turn my steering wheel over 90° it will kill the motor unless l hold the rpms over 1800. Also when l take off from a complete stop the transmission whines and jerks.
A friend replaced his 360 V-8 with a used one. He was driving normally when it died, won’t restart. Cranks fine, sound like wants to start intermittently, at times seem to be advanced and pushing back. Check dist position, OK. Has good spark, checked plug wires and for correct firing order OK. Checked TDC and #1 plug is in correct position. Tried ether spray, still no start. Are there any computer bases annomilies that may applie here?
Mechanic tested for anything drawing on the battery, and there's nothing. It's killed 3 brand new batteries. I'm keeping it on a tender now, otherwise the battery is dead in a matter of days. It isn't my daily driver any more. I've had it for about 5 years. It may have been a long term issue, but driving it every day was keeping it charged. This has become an issue over the last year. Any help would be appreciated.

I am having an issue with not much heat and have narrowed it down to possibly the blend door actuator, but I can't find it. I have located the other vacuum operated actuators but not this electric one.
