Installed new air conditioning compressor in 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix - how much compressor oil do I need to put in?


If you have not cleaned out the ac system,the ac system will have oil in it,but,the compressor most likely does not have any in it,so pour about 4 to 5 oz in the low side opening on the compressor before installing it,and turn the center nut of the compressor clutch about 8 to 10 times,oil will try and come out the high side,when it does,this will be enough turning.If the system needs more oil,add as needed when freon is put in the system.If the oil is not added to the ac compressor before installing,the compressor could be damaged.Please rate if this was helpful,thank you.

Got a 79 trans am and am replacing the a/c compressor that came with no oil. have a retrofit kit that have refrigerant and oil mix together. Is that all I need or do I need to put additional lubricant in...


you will have to ad additional oil to the ac system, many use esteroil or what some call universal pag oil. get a measuring cup,dump the oil out of the old compressor and make sure you add the same amount back into the new compressor. hope that helped you!

I am working on a 2000 nissan maxima and i have replaced the compressor and refilled the freon and oil and the presure relief valve keeps poping open with only one can of freon instaled it seems likethere...


Sometimes there are plugs in the compressor when shipped. Make sure that there is nothing in the compressor where the line attach. How much oil did you put in the system. Compressor are shipped with oil in them. The correct way to measure would be to drain the oil compressor and measure that amount. Then drain the new compressor and compare the amounts. Put NEW oil in the new compressor. Remember the compressor can not compress liquids. It is possible that there is too much oil in the compressor.

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.

Unsure about where oil came from


You nedd to put the oil back but not the same oil you removed as it is probibaly contaminated now. The new compressor should have come with a small tube 3 ounces of oil to be installed with it. If still unsure ask the mechanic that is going to charge the system for you. As he will have to pull the air out of the system to chq for leaks.

A/c compressor


If you are installing a new compressor,look on the box or on a sticker on the unit to make sure it does not have oil already installed.But it calls for 8 oz.This seems a little mutch to me.I would put no more than 6oz...Good Luck!!!
