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.

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!

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.

I just replaced the comp, the dryer and the orfice tube in my 2005 dodge ram 2500 with the 5.9L diesel, what oil and how much do i put in my ac system?


Tip the drier upside down and allow some of the oil trapped in the drier to drip into a small container. Smell the oil. If it smells like fruit then it is an Ester based oil. Look at the label on the compressor as the type of oil used in the compressor should be listed on this label and NEVER use a different type of oil then the one listed as the oils are NOT mixable. The amount of oil is depndent upon the size of the system and the amount the compressor has been initially filled with. Check with the vehicle manufacturer or a local Air Con service centre as they will be able to advise regarding amount. If you add the oil yourself, remember that all the synthetic oils used with modern refrigerants is a health hazard and can cause dematitis and severe skin irritations. Certain types of oils are also known to be carcinogenic so wear gloves and face protection. Remember that too much oil is worse then not enough as overcharging the oil can cause flooding in the condenser and reduces the ability of the condenser to allow the transfer of stored heat out to the surrounding air..
