The compressor has oil & the system components
have oil
Need more details of what is taking place & buy whom
& how ,etc
Need the compressor model
You need a service manual
Need the correct type oil
I assume your installing a new compressor
& dumping whatever came with it to be sure
it has the correct oil in it
Don't have any info for you,this is just a chat room
nothing to do with fixya
Usually about 4 or 5 oz go in there
Did the system loose any over the years
Are you flushing components
Lots to consider

Oil capacity air conditionercompressor 2010 holden cruze


the oil in an ac compressor is in the compressor on installation and does not need replacing or replenishing. The oil travels with the gas and is through out the system
you may get the oil capacity of a new compressor but you will need the compressor make,model and check on line to the compressor manufacturer as Holden will not have that information

Oil and refrigerant capacity for 88 chevy s10 pickup


There should have been a sticker on or around the accumulator with the specs.
Oil capacity is the amount drained from the old compressor, plus 3 oz. for the accumulator. Freon charge would be around 36oz or 3 cans.
You would put in 2 cans and then add until the pressure readings are within spec.

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 s the A/C compressor oil capacity in 2003 dodge durango with rear A/C


If it was shipped empty just add the amount that's stamped on the compressor. But most of the ones that I have seen where shipped wet/ full . to check get a beaker and simply remove the plugs and drain the oil into the beaker. when the system is opened it is recomended that you replace the RECEIVER DRYER also. if the compressor is damaged internally then you need to replace the EXPANSION VALVE also. hope this helps

2003 jeep liberty air conditioning oil capacity


If the compressor is dry of oil (new compressors will either be shipped with or without oil) and you need to add oil you can never go wrong by adding three ounces. Once the compressor is installed turn it by hand several times. Then install the belt and add freon.

Replacing compressor, accumulator and orifice tube on 97 k1500. how much pag oil goes in compressor, and how much goes in accumulator. book says to empty oil out of old accumulato, measure and replace that...


Look for a light blue label in the engine compartment, the refrigerant capacity and oil capacity are on that label. But, being a '97, that label might be long gone. That information can also be found in a service manual. Manuals can be purchased at parts stores and you might even find one at a library. You could also call a dealer's service department and ask them.

r-134, 39 oz of freon, pag 150 oil, 8 oz oil, now that is the capacity for a new compressor and systen cleaned, or you need to drain yours old compressor and add half to the compressor and half into the accumalator/drier to have the correct oil amount in the system.

What is the A/C Compressor Oil Capacity in a 2002 Dodge Durango with the dual system?


The system oil capacity (Total- if all components replaced or flushed) is 10.0 oz. Manufacturer oil proceedure for the compressor alone is to drain and measure oil from the old compressor (make sure to turn shaft a few times to get it all out) and add the same amount of new oil to the new compressor. Chrysler says that you must use a sp15 PAG oil.
Note that you must flush the entire system when replacing the compressor in order for the warranty to be valid on the replacement part. Also require is the replacement of the drier assembly.
Have a great day!
