Where do you add oil after replacing AC evaporator for Saab 2001 9.3?


there most likely is no need to replace the oil as oil travels with the gas
it is normally put in through the compressor but the amount is critical as excessive oil will block the TX valve
now that you have replaced the evaporator, take it to an auto ac specialist shop , have the system evacuated right down , any oil required to be added and the correct amount of gas to be installed

How much freon an oil does this system take


the amount of oil in an ac system is determined in the compressor and unless there has been a major leak where the oil is lost then no oil will be needed . As to the gas, it is added until the correct pressure during operation is obtained. It will be far cheaper to have the system checked for leaks and the correct amount of gas added by an accredited ac specialist shop.

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.

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,

Ac wont cool ,low freon, what type do i use


if its low you have a leak. adding more will just leak into the atmosphere causing more climate issues. You need to have it serviced properly. Adding too much without the proper oil will only wear out your compressor then this job will get real expensive.

The clutch was bad- i took out the old ac compressor and bought a new compressor/clutch . there is no oil added to this one- so what type/how much, etc. also do the condensors need to be replaced or any...


na you dont have to change condenser if it was not leaking.was their gas in the system when you remove the ac copmressor.and for the oil,the ac man should pump the oil when he fills the gas in the system.

I tried to charge the air conditioner on 95 suburban. it doesn't act like it wants to charge. the compressor keeps cycling on and off so can't get a good read on the pressure.


The system could be low on oil. The compressor will shut itself down if it detects a lack of oil or refrigerant. Try adding compressor oil (comes in a can similar to the R-134A) to see if the compressor will stay engaged long enough to accept a charge. It's also possible that the system has so much air in it that it needs to be evacuated before refrigerant can be added. I'd try to add the oil and see if you have better sucess adding refrigerant REMINDER: Have AC on HIGH when adding refrigerant with car running

Hope this helps with your AC problem. Please post back with any other questions. Best of luck.
