Question about 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

I need to recharge the 134A A/C dual system in a 1999 3.3 litre Dodge Grand Caravan. Most if not all of the oil was probably lost when the van hit a deer. The high side line was broken as was the condensor. How much oil should be added to the system? Keep in mind the van has rear air. Thanks. Fred

    This is good information, most people probably don't know most of the oil is in the compressor, but as I mentioned in my original query, this is a dual system. Meaning it also has rear air. So instead of 32 oz. of 134A it requires 46 oz. Thanks. fchase300

Most of the oil should be in your compressor, if the compressor was not damaged and not replaced you should be ok on oil other than recharging it with a 134 w/oil. That should be sufficient. Usually there is about 8 oz put directly into the compressor when replaced. In that vehicle I believe it should alos be recharged with 32 oz. of freon.

Evacuated system but ac will not run when recharging.


When you evacuated the system, did you also vacuum it so that it has and holds 30 In/v? If it is not under vacuum, you may have to over ride the low pressure bypass by bridging the wiring to get the clutch to engage, but after you have added about 24 oz. of 134a I would think it should cycle-don't forget you also need to add about 6 Oz of PAG oil if you did really vacuum it out.

How much refrigerant does a 1999 dodge grand caravan hold?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This is probably more information that you wanted but... have to cover all the possibilities:
If you are servicing a system that has leaked you have no idea how much oil it left in the system.
DO it right the first time......
The proper way to service it is to connect it to a recovery & servicing unit. Evacuate and test the system for leaks, then reservice the system per the specs below.
1999 Dodge Caravan:

. Low side gauge (evaporator suction): 10 to 37 psi.*
. High side gauge (discharge): 112 to 210 psi.*
. Refrigerant oil capacity (without rear A/C): 5.00 oz.
. Refrigerant oil capacity (with rear A/C): 7.40 oz.
. Refrigerant capacity (without rear A/C): 2.13 lbs. of R-134a
. Refrigerant capacity (with rear A/C): 2.88 lbs. of R-134a

*Sea level and ambient air temperature of 80 degrees F.

Replaced the compressor in my 1999 Dodge Caravan. The pulley failed on the old one so I bought a new compressor with clutch. I recovered the R-134a and replaced the compressor. I recovered 1 oz of old from...


the new compressor was likely shipped pre oiled. it should have had a tag on it saying if it was oiled or not, and how much. if you added more oil, the system has probably been over oiled and hydro locked. recover the refrigerant again, if you are working with an actual automotive a c machine you should be able to draw that extra oz of PAG oil out, then recharge refrigerant. hopefully that will do it! otherwise, you could have a restriction in your system, possible from debris in one of the compressors, in which case you will need to flush the lines out. good luck!

you should be adding the 134a to the system the low pressure switch is doing its job by not allowing the compressor to kick on, it wont kick on until there is enough 134a in the system to be above the preset pressure for the low pressure switch.
