You do not add oil to an automotive A/C compressor. When you do a refill with a proper coolant, it will have any necessary lubricants.

A/c compresor not engaging


Yes, freon must be present in the system in order to circulate the oil that lubricates your compressor. A low pressure switch is used to stop the compressor from running if the freon level/pressure is low. This is to keep your compressor from destroying itself due to lack of lubrication.

There are also several other reasons that an A/C compressor will not engage. Proper diagnosis is required.

when replacing compressor you should drain/measure the amount of oil in old unit
then add equal amount of clean oil.if no oil is in old unit then adding 2 - 4 oz is recemended
compressors are shipped dry & reciever dryer or accumalator should be replaced as well
adding 2 oz of oil.

good luck

Replacing a/c compressor and accumulater on 97 chev lumina.new compressor says add 180cc pag oil.do i need to add oil to accumulater?


Usually an ounce is more than enough to add to the accumulator. Same thing if you where to replace the condensor or evaporator.

If you wanted you could dump the oil from the old accumulator into a cup and then add that same amount to the new one but an ounce would be the norm.

Im installing a new a/c compressor and i need to add oil and i need to know how much. Its a 1997 suburban with the rear evaporater.


11 OZ of PAG 150 oil Follow Compressor instructions to see how much to add to New Compressor and the balance should be poured into the NEW Accumulator and change the orifice tube in the front near Y split after the condensor on the high pressure side.

How much ac compressor oil is needed in a 1997 Buick Lesabre?


Hello.

The best way to know how much oil is needed is to first drain the old compressor. If the old compressor has more that 2oz, add the amount that came out of the old compressor. If less than 2oz, add only 2oz.

How do I fill air conditioner coolant.compressor is new, but I need to add coolant.


You need to evacuate mositure with a vacuum pump and then add a can of r134a with oil in the can. Then add more cans without oil. Up to the amount on the decal under the hood.
The low side charge port is behind the passenger fender well. Remove tire and the 7 fasteners holding the plastic fender liner in.

You have to measure the oil in the old compressor and then add a small amount, usually about 2 oz's this is for a system that has been run, the oil circulates with the refrigerant, so oil is in every component, you really need to consult a factory service manual to come up with the proper amount, it is based on which components you are replacing. Bottom line is what ever you drain out is what goes back in + a small amount, if you get it wrong you can end up with a frozen up compressor or a system that does not cool correctly.
