The oil used in ac compressors is specific for the gas in use
new compressors have the correct oil already in the unit and a leaking system will not require any oil to be added
using the wrong oil will probably result in a system replacement

How much Freon and oil do I need to add to a new used compressor

13oz of PAG46 oil. Be sure to vacuum down the system after you put the oil in. Let the vacuum pump run for about 30min or more.

Then roughly 46oz of R134A but you want to use gauges so you dont over pressurize due to ambient temperature.

    2008 infiniti g37 motor is knocking has 16500 miles on it.

    Please change the oil now at the Nissan garage and watch the vehicle closely.

    $100 is not so much like getting your car totally knocked.

    Good luck and rate this solution/ suggestion.

    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.

    it should be r134, when you buy the oil (coolant) from the parts store they can look up you car and let you know how many lbs. to put in it.
