I want to say is the R34 a but just call the auto parts store and give them your make and model and they can tell you what kind you need

You can't buy the older stuff R12 anyway.

It takes R-134a. Tom is right, you can't get R-12 anymore...Technically. There are a very few shops that have certified individuals (very hard to get certified anymore) to charge 1992 and older cars. If I remember right, that stuff was over $1000 for a 30 pound tank of the stuff because of the taxes due to EPA regulations.
