How to lubricate the kompressor on the 2004 c230

This is an estimate if the compressor was not drained. First, there are differences in the weight or viscosity of the oil for compressors. It works just like the weight of engine oil. You need to find out what was used on your vehicle. Many people DO NOT know about this with compressor oil.

Next, there are small containers or pressurized cans of oil which are introduced into the Freon system using A/C ports. There are oil-only containers and there are mixed Freon-oil containers.

Pressure is a concern. Some of the volume in the system will be displaced by the oil. If your system is low on Freon, then a mixed can with Freon and oil would be better. If the pressure is normal, you may be able to squeeze a little oil into it without making changes to the Freon.

If the pressure is too HIGH, then bleeding off a little Freon would be needed. There is usually only a small charge of oil in the system, something like 4 ounces. But this would be a complete fill. So unless you have a completely VOID empty system, you will not know what the oil level actually is when adding oil.

I hope my solution is helpful to you.

I need to oil my air conditioning compressor for my '97 chevy tahoe

use a standard fill hose and locate the low pressure port.It will most allways be smaller than the high side connect the hose to the low pressure port after you remove the cap. Then scew the a
can of compreeor oil onto the hose. You will find the oil at most auto parts houses and wal-mart. Start the engine and rev to about 1500rpm. open the can by screwing the house valve and needle in or all the way down. Now back the valve out allthe way. This will allow the oil to flow. Hold the can up-right call that 12 o-clock . After a few seconds rotate the can to the 3 o-clock possition for two to three sec. then rotae back to 12 o-clock. Reapeat this every few second until the can is empty. I know the can will say this end up but it will be ok. Now when canis empty close down the hose valve and dissconnect the hose and replace the cap on low port. If this sounds over your head or you are not sure it only need oil contact an A/C mechanic. Note If it is a new or reman compressor it will be shipped with a fe ounces oil in it. If so then a can of first charge gas and oil will be good enough. hope this help some. Good Luck!

Where do i put oil into my a/c compressor on my 99 gmc sonoma?

in the low pressure charging port. its more complicated than that. why do you think it needs oil. oil is only added after a component is replaced, and the amount of oil is known. you dont want too much oil.

I installed a new a/c compressor on a 91 geo metro.Where does the compressor oil go into the compressor at?

The compressor's oil is mixed with and circulates with the refrigerant. R134a refrigerant can be purchased with or without oil mixed into it. There are also separate oil 'chargers' that inject oil without the refrigerant.

How do I fill air conditioner coolant.compressor is new, but I need to add coolant.

You need to evacuate mositure with a vacuum pump and then add a can of r134a with oil in the can. Then add more cans without oil. Up to the amount on the decal under the hood.
The low side charge port is behind the passenger fender well. Remove tire and the 7 fasteners holding the plastic fender liner in.

How do I add coolant to the air conditioning system of my 2001 Hyundai Elantra?

You need to locate the low port on the AC.

You recharge the AC connecting to the low port.

You find the AC low pressure at the top of the compressor. Near the compressor you find two ports, the high port and low port.
You can follow the compressor line to reach the port.

To find out which one is the low port, run the air conditioner for a couple of minutes withthe engine on.
Then turn off the care and touch the lines from compressor to the two ports , often covered with plastic caps. Only one of the pipes will be cold, the line that is cold will lead you to the low port.

R12 compressor in r134a system

The Compressor will need to be retrofited by an EPA class II refrigeration technician this can be easily done by an ac shop as the oils in the two systems are not compatible and, the fittings must be changed to accept only r-134-a test gauge hoses
