Autozone or the equivalent parts store will have that data per specific vehicle in their computer system. Also they may not tell you, but there is certain pag oil for certain vehicles...

Thank you

look a few threads below this one. capacity guide

I bought a can of 134a at w**-mart that had a stop leak, oil, and dye in it. It also had a hose and a gauge, so now I'm an AC pro!

Once you read the caps, the components each need a certain amount of pag and I'd suggest ultra synthetic. You did not say what is getting replaced nor if you had oil/Freon leaks. SO we don't know.
If you had oil leaks, you are replacing seals.
If you are not replacing certain components, they already have oil in them. If you had compressor blow, the system needs flushed, neutralized, O-rings seals replaced, orifice tube or expansion valve cleaned or replaced, and all the component parts need its oil(s). Then you hook your gauges, and evacuate the system for an hour with both hi + low valves open, then close and wait about 30 minutes to see if it holds the vacumn. Then you remove the vac line from evacuator machine and attach a can (12 0z) Freon to the line, add with the pierce adapter, puncture and reverse out the pin so that vac line has pressure. crack the other end at gauge a bit to release just a very tiny bit of any contaminated air til you see F. Tighten then open the low valve and shake the can upside down as the gas enters the system. Now you can start the engine and continue filling the amount of specified F. DO NOT open the HI side.
Check that ac switches are on, compressor comes on, radiator fan comes on. If everything is ok, you should see 30-50 on low and 200-300 on hi. SHUT DOWN if different, as something has gone wrong. You can do a search on the gauges readings to figure out whats wrong. Do not put Stop Leak in there, it crudds the system, replace any bad hose or seal.
I like to only do things once, and take all apart and test everything on a bench. Don't be a hack, so heres a vid:
Put as much history in your questions as you can, it helps us!
