My 1999 gram am engine light ison and chage oil light and traction off light is on and it is shacking and losing compression wont go to fast

The change oil light is its own issue. Not connected with the other lights. The traction light could be on because the engine is not running right. So the traction control is disabled.
You need to get the engine computer scanned for trouble codes to find out why the engine is running rough. Remember codes are only a guide for checking and testing, not a direct command to replace parts.

How much oil do i put in a 96 blazer s-10 a/c compressor

Only but back what you think is lost, try and estimate in oz. if you are fixing a leak, and recharging the system. You do not want too much oil in the system as that will hurt its cooling capacity. The compressor dry will take approz 4.o 0z. oil.

My 96 bonneville's oil pressure drops way down when idiling,the dinging drives me dies out ocassionally also,I changed the oil pressure switch it wasnt the problem,please help me.

Try changing to a higher viscosity oil, like a straight 40 grade.This might help for a while but it is only a temporary fix. It sounds like the main bearings or oil pump might be defective or just worn out.

96 gmc k1500 4x4. a/c does not work

The 5.7l has a low pressure on off switch. if you freon is low it will not allow it to turn on. This is a way to protect the compressor. By jumping that compressor switch, it will turn on and blow hot because there is no freon AND NO COMPRESSOR OIL!!!! don't do it very long or you will trash your compressor if it is not already. Most vehicles these days have this safety feature.
