What old compressor?
One not in the vehicle or the one in it?
If it leaked out while in the vehicle, when
the a/c did work ,then you lost several oz
from other components & may have burned
out the compressor as well.
Need a shop trained in refrigeration to work
on it, unless you have a vacuum pump & manifold
You need to look up the specs on the oil type & weight
also. This is just a chat room,see a dealer or shop with
a data base for that info, which is in factory service manuals
I assume you never bought.

New compressor on 2001 oldsmobile aurora. Still will not come on


There is a lot more to air conditioning than putting a new compressor on. I hope that you checked the fuses, checked the low side safety switch, drained and flushed the system, put in a new receiver dryer and vacuumed the system, put the oil back in the system and then put in new Freon.

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.

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.

AC compressor


doesnt mean system is empty,because no oil came out off compressor,unless the system was flush and should be flushed with cleaner, then the system would hold 10oz, of oil,also make sure to spin compressor by hand 10 times to get the oil and liqiud out of cylinders,add a couple ozes of oil in dryer then compressor and the evaporator core to equal 10oz of oil,after added oil to compressor stand on pulley to coat seal let sit for 10min, then after all line are connected then you spin 10 turns, hope this help,

take the serp belt off, remove the 4 bolts on top. remove the bolt holding the lines. unplug the plug on the back of compressor. remove compressor. drain oil out into a measuring cup. use a snap ring pliers and remove the senor. with new compressor install the old sensor. drain the oil out of new comp. there should be a total of 7 oz pag 150 a/c oil. add to new oil until there is 7 ozs. put back into comp. install back into car in the same order. when done go to a shop and have them charge the system. tell them what you did so they don't add any more oil into it. change the dryer at the same time. don't oil it. no warranty if you don't change it. best of luck

Ac compressor oil


First off is your compressor pre-lubed? to find out, remove shipping caps from ports and tip to side and see if any oil comes out. As a rule of thumb, The oil is sold in a small bottle pre measured for the entire system. 1/4 bottle per item (compressor, evaporator,condenser, and filter/dryer) The label showing cc's will do fine for your oil needs as the system will find its own level once activated. Oil continuously flows througout system. Need I remind you that when replacing compressor you should also replace filter/dryer so you do not repeat this job in two months.
