What type and amount of compressor oil is required for 2000 silverado 4.8L a/c


No, it has the right oil in it. New and rebuilt compressor come with the right oil and the right amount. If it looks like some has leaked out, don't fret about it. As your system already has some in it. But if the plugs are off or missing, I would add about 2 OZ of oil. GM is a medium grade oil.

Compressor


It could very well be the compressor or the compressor clutch. There are variations in the clutch which make a difference in whether you can change the clutch without replacing the compressor.
The A/C compressor has bearings and they require oil in the Freon to lube them and the other moving compressor parts.
The oil is added in the Freon Low pressure port and the oil is available separately or mixed with Freon. There are different weights of this oil just like motor oil and you should use the correct type for your Brand.
There is a small chance that oil will solve the noise problem.
The thing is that you have a sealed system, and if you need oil, the original oil leaked out. You may think that this will be a Summer only problem, but the Compressor is made to turn on with the Defroster function above a certain temperature.
You add the oil just as Freon. If you watch the compressor clutch operate, if the noise is present full-time without the compressor engaged, then the clutch may be the only problem with the A/C. If the clutch engages and the noise then starts, it is likely the compressor.
As I earlier indicated, the A/C clutch may attach different ways. Left hand threads, snap rings, and some may require a pulley puller. Lack of room may require lowering the compressor while still connected to Freon lines in order to use a puller.
So look at the operation of the A/C clutch. When the front clutch plate spins, it is driving the compressor. If the compressor is noisy, then add oil. It may solve the problem.

How much oil is required for a new AC compressor 91 ford ranger, 3.0, the system is completely empty, (replacing compressor, no oil in it)


System 7 to 9 oz

Condenser 1 oz
Dryer or Accumulator 1 0z
Evaporator 3 oz
Compressor 3 to 4 oz

On most vehicles

You have a big problem---no R12 has been avail for the
last 15 years

SO-- you need to flush every component of mineral oil
& replace with ester or pag,then switch to R134A refrigerant

That may require a compressor built for those pressures &
"o" rings such as the green ones

Need to research what your doing

Putting a new compressor on a 2002 Santa fe no oil came out of the condenser can I add all the required oil into the compressor


There will be an exact specification for a completely dry system, all new components, or just to replace the compressor. Make sure to attain this spec. So to answer this question, NO.

What is the A/C Compressor Oil Capacity in a 2002 Dodge Durango with the dual system?


The system oil capacity (Total- if all components replaced or flushed) is 10.0 oz. Manufacturer oil proceedure for the compressor alone is to drain and measure oil from the old compressor (make sure to turn shaft a few times to get it all out) and add the same amount of new oil to the new compressor. Chrysler says that you must use a sp15 PAG oil.
Note that you must flush the entire system when replacing the compressor in order for the warranty to be valid on the replacement part. Also require is the replacement of the drier assembly.
Have a great day!

Freon leaks at compressor seal. where is compressor located?


the compressor seal is located at the compressor. there are shaft seals, case seals, hose seals and the like BUT:

This job requires special tools and special training. If you lack either, you risk SERIOUS personal injury. Injury comes VERY EASILY!

You need to address oil levels, proper and legal refrigerant recovery, system evacuation, and recharge.

You were planning to also replace the receiver/dryer, correct? It also needs the oil in it measured and incorporated into the amount of oil (in %) that would need to be added. FAILURE to address these and other issues will guarantee premature system failure and likely compressor damage.

Take this job to a qualified shop.

Sorry

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,

R12 compressor in r134a system


The Compressor will need to be retrofited by an EPA class II refrigeration technician this can be easily done by an ac shop as the oils in the two systems are not compatible and, the fittings must be changed to accept only r-134-a test gauge hoses

Ac compressor oil


First off is your compressor pre-lubed? to find out, remove shipping caps from ports and tip to side and see if any oil comes out. As a rule of thumb, The oil is sold in a small bottle pre measured for the entire system. 1/4 bottle per item (compressor, evaporator,condenser, and filter/dryer) The label showing cc's will do fine for your oil needs as the system will find its own level once activated. Oil continuously flows througout system. Need I remind you that when replacing compressor you should also replace filter/dryer so you do not repeat this job in two months.
