im' not an expert at all and what i've learned is that A/C is not hard. replace any bad parts, they're all easy as pie to replace and the ones that aren't very rarely fail. replace any orings you can get to (the two on the compressor for sure) and the two schrader valves.

pull a vacuum and charge it. if you can't pull a vacuum, just charge it and it'll work fine.

if you're dealing with an internally exploded a/c compressor things get more interesting. but that is rare.

there's enough existing A/C threads to probably fix your situation.
