My daily drivers AC hasn't worked for a couple years because I think theres no freon in the system. I really don't want to pay $100+ for a re-fill. Has anyone used one of those kits like from the parts store? The car is a 1998 Buick Skylark
If I'm not mistaken, you need to go to a shop to recharge if there's no refrigrerant in it since they need to pull a vacuum and then add refrigerant

or you can pick up a cheapo vacuum unit from harbor freight. Pulling a vacuum would be best first to make sure there is no water in the system. Also, pulling a vacuum and trying to hold a vacuum for a few minutes will let you know if you have a leak somewhere. but do not put leak stop in it. thats bad news down the road. you can find cans of r134a without leak stop. most will advertise it, but avoid it.
