I have no idea on the 12 -> 134a conversion stuff, but if you want some excellent diagrams, download a parts catalog for your year. It will probably span 91-93 since the one for my XJ is 94-96 and 91...

The Harbor Freight one is nice - it moves a much larger volume of fluid than the dinky bottle top ones. I've always used my Dad's (since he has one I've never need to buy one for myself) and there...

Normally, I'd say that your various tie rod ends and track bar need to be checked for wear - but it sounds like you had a shop check and they said it was good.

If all the tie rod stuff and track...

Maybe you just blew the excess refrigerant out and once the pressure fell to spec it closed up and is fine.

You'd be damn lucky if that's the case, but who knows. If the compressor blew up, it...

It's a pretty simple fix. You'll be replacing the 'switch' with a 'sender' when you do the gauge swap. Look at the back of the engine near the firewall and you'll see the little wire plugged into...

Does it have the original 0331 head? You mentioned the gasket, but there is a widespread issue with 00 and 01 head original heads cracking. Is there any trace of coolant in the oil?
