Air conditioner losing its power?

    Hi,

    my legacy 1995 seems to be getting out of R134 coolant. It did not
    happen suddenly, but since a couple of years, it looks like the air
    conditioner takes more and more time to do its job. After the last
    couple of days at 90 degress F, I see that it just can't cool enough.
    It still cools air a little, and I still see water dropping under the
    car. But after ten years, is it normal that the refrigerant slowly
    vanishes away?

    (My other Legacy 90, with R12 refrigerant, did not make five years
    before the refrigerant system started to leak at every O-ring.)

    Stick a good thermometer in the center vent. The temp should be ~35
    degrees colder that outside if the charge is good.
