5.1 oz. and use PAG oil ONLY!!! Get at the local parts house. Be sure to replace receiver dryer when replacing AC compressor. Vacuum system, add oil, charge with R134. WARNING: Be sure to connect to low side!!! Hard to mess up. Low side is the small port, high side is large port.

How much pag oil go in my Dodge Durango ac compressor 2004 model


there will be no need to put oil in an ac compressor

Hi folks I'm new here. I bought a 2000 echo that seemed to have no problems that I could find. Little did I know he had loosened the main belt for the ac and alternator. When I tried to snug it up the belt...


Hi Rick, My first place of interest would be the AC belt. The pulley is double with the inner part having an electro magnetic clutch operating the actual AC compressor. The problem may well be related to the compressor having seized. Some vehicles do have crankshaft pulleys damped with a synthetic rubber bonding. the inner and outer sections together. Paint a mark with white paint onto all relevant pulleys and then observe with the engine running, which is not turning or is turning more slowly than the others. Regards John

Hello, This problem can happen and whoever told you it needed a different compressor was correct.
Your A/C must have made noise or stopped worked for some length of time. There are a couple of ways to fix this, depending on how you fix it, will greatly affect the cost.

Brand new compressors are running from $190-$270. If you go online to Advance Autoparts, they are having a 25% off sale on them until Nov. 30th,2011. This would include free shipping or pickup locally. Used parts can be priced at Car-parts.com, an online used Salvage site that lists the prices upfront. They operate Nationally and ship to your door.

There are some other things that need to be done, supplemental damage costs, which include a new dryer (needed to get a warranty) and compressor oil, and recovery or replacement of Freon. I would guess the additional costs at another $300.

It is not impossible to find a Repair shop which will install the Compressor you bought separately. But it may be difficult because the Repair shops make money on what THEY BUY to install. You could specify that you want a used compressor installed and let them get it, knowing from your research of what a used compressor should cost.

Winter is coming and a company called Dorman makes a compressor bypass kit that Advance sells for $40. You could remove your broken compressor and save for the repair over Winter. I would estimate replacing the A/C Compressor for a total of $700-$800 if you have to pay someone to do everything. Less if using used parts.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

I have Corolla 2008, my car AC works well but when it trips (goes from AC to fan), it takes a long time to return back to AC. I have discussed with many technicians here in KSA, some say that compressor...


The Condenser only gets replaced if it is damaged & leaking
If you have a major compressor failure it could catch debris
So forget that

The Compressor will show how it is doing on the A/C
manifold gauge set,as far as cycling pressures & they
could jump it if you had control issues
So assuming no leaks & proper charge, as you do
Not that

It is not coming on because the system does not sense
enough BTU's of heat & the need to do so

I can not help you as to the system components as I
have no data at all

This is a social web site & very helpful to a lot of folks

If it has an electronic module involved, then they should use
a scan tool to command the system on,& you will find your
problem

I would, as they should have, a system schematic or they
are lost with no where to even start

Hi..i had to change a/c condencer, and the a/c compresser, both at the same time.how will i go about charging the system? do i need to add coolent too both ports? or just the low side.?


YOU TAKE TO A GARAGE LET THEM PUMP IT DOWN FIRST MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE RIGHT AMOUNT REFRIGERANT OIL IN COMPRESSOR.IT COME WITH SHIPPING OIL IN IT BUT YOU HAVE TO POUR IT OUT.PUT IN THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF REFRIGERANT OIL IN COMPRESSOR LOOK IN OWNERS MANUAL TO PUT IN THE RIGHT AMOUNT.NOW IF YOUR OLD COMPRESSOR SEIZED OR LOCKED UP THEN LET GARAGE FLUSH OUT METAL SHAVINGS OUT .IF YOU DONT FLUSH OUT SHAVINGS THE NEW COMPRESSOR WILL BE DESTROYED.ALSO YOU HAVE TO REPLACED THE ACCUMULATOR OR ORIFICE TUBE IF EQUIPPED.IF OLD COMPRESSOR DIDNT LOCK UP.PUT NEW REFRIGERANT OIL IN COMPRESSOR IT TAKE AT LEAST 1 OUNCE OF OIL BUT CHECK OWNERS MANUAL ALL VECHICLE HAS DIFFERENT SPECS.AFTER COMPRESSOR OIL BEEN PUT IN EVERYTHING ALL REFRIGERANT LINES TIGHT.TAKE VECHICLE TO A GARAGE THAT DO AIR CONDITIONER WORK.THEY HAVE TO USE A VACUUM PUMP TO PUMP DOWN THE AC SYSTEM TO REMOVE MOISTURE AND LEAK TEST THE SYSTEM WHILE IT PUMP DOWN.IF YOU DONT LET THE GARAGE PUMP DOWN SYSTEM. THE MOISTURE WILL FREEZE UP IN AC SYSTEM CAUSING POOR OR NO COOLING.THE GARAGE GOING TO CHARGE YOU TO PUMP DOWN AND CHARGE UP SYSTEM.IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO DO THIS THAN TO BUY A VACUUM PUMP AND MANIFOLD GAUGE SET.WHEN DOING AC WORK YOU NEED SPECIAL EQUIPMENT AND TOOLS TO DO THE JOB OR THE AC SYSTEM WILL NOT WORK RIGHT.

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.

If your compressor is bad it needs to be replaced. You have several different options. 1. Run to a local auto parts store, buy a new compressor and have someone install and refill your system. 2. Buy a used compressor from a salvage yard have it installed for cheaper but more likely to go out faster. 3. Keep going to the dealer who will more then likely go to the same auto parts store buy the same part and increase the price on your invoice then charge you more per hour to install it then the local mechanic that's a block away. 4. The local mechanic might be able to put a smaller belt on and bypass your ac compressor. Putting the smaller belt on doesn't always work. Only on some vechiles. And on a personal note, if that dealership wants a $1000 for this job, I would consider that highway robbery!
