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.

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

Refrigerant charge

If you mean "how much does it hold" there is a sticker in the engine compartment or on the compressor that gives the capacity.
On that kind of car, I would say total capacity would be around 4 cans or 3 lbs. That is if the system is empty and has a vac when it is filled.

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.

There is no way for you to do that unless you have the machine to vacuum out the system. The A/C system needs to be vacuumed to get all the moisture out of the system and needs to be in a negative pressure before recharging can take place. There should be a sticker in the engine bay somewhere with the information on type of Refrigerant used and capacity in your A/C system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your A/C is running 100% again soon.
