What type and amount of compressor oil is required for 2000 silverado 4.8L a/c


No, it has the right oil in it. New and rebuilt compressor come with the right oil and the right amount. If it looks like some has leaked out, don't fret about it. As your system already has some in it. But if the plugs are off or missing, I would add about 2 OZ of oil. GM is a medium grade oil.

V09a1aa4ak oil capacity


There is no need to add oil to an ac compressor unless you have had a massive leak. new compressors come with the right amount of oil. The compressor oil circulates with the gas and by the time the gas pressure drops from a leak then the amount of oil leaked out is just a few drops. Excessive oil in the system stops the TX valve from working and causes problems . If still in doubt then talk to an accredited ac specialist

What is the oil capacity for a/c compressor


The rule is, if you are replacing the compressor with a new or rebuilt first you make sure it did not come filled with oil first, if not then 2 oz of oil and then stand compressor on the pulley for 5 mins to allow oil to lube seal and front shaft then after you install it and lines are connected you will spin clutch 10 times, not pulley but clutch, this allows oil to be pumped out of compressor, you should also be replacing the filter dryer and maybe flush system if compressor locked up, if the clutch went bad you may skip the flush.when replacing dryer add 2 oz to the dryer also. good day.

Need to know how much compressor oil to add to anew compressor? lost all paper work


You will add 2oz of oil to compressor then stand it up on the pulley so oil lubes front seal. let it sit for 10 min like that then install, its a good thing to replace the dryer alot of parts places make you replace it inorder to get warranty for compressor. if you replace the dryer then add 1oz inside of that, after you put it togther and line are connected spin compressor by hand 15 times to help get some oil out of compressor and into lines, make sure to vacuum the system for 1/2 hour to get air and moisture out of system. a vacuum pump is needed to do this. good day.

How much compressor oil do I add when changing the ac compressor on a 04 expedition with front and rear ac?


When replacing the compressor the dryer should also be replaced, you put 2oz of oil in compressor and stand compressor on pulley for 5 min, then after install turn clutch 10 turns to pump most oil out of compressor, the dryer should have 2 oz of oil also, if you are flushing the ac system out with a solvent then more oil is needed for the system, if your just replacing the compressor then 2oz in compressor.
