Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
This job requires special tools and special training. If you lack either, you risk SERIOUS personal injury. Injury comes VERY EASILY! The amount of refrigerant needed is a calculation; just adding is NOT the correct method. At a given ambient temperature, you need to achieve a pressure. Measurements are to be made at both low and high pressure sides of the system. From these readings, a calculation can be made about refrigerant quantity.
You need to address oil levels, proper and legal refrigerant recovery, system evacuation, and recharge.
If you are opening the system, 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.
