    What oil do I use for a 2 HP air compressor

    If it is the sort of compressor that needs oil (lots don't), you won't do better than obtain a can of dedicated compressor oil as produced by most respectable oil companies.

    Compressors don't operate at such high temperatures as engines or suffer such extremes of pressure as hydraulic oils and so it is best to use an oil formulated for the conditions found in a compressor.

    If you temporarily can't source a dedicated compressor oil I suggest you use a straight grade oil; SAE 30 would be about right for hard use but SAE 20 for short runs and light use.

    How much compressor oil do I add when changing the ac compressor on a 04 expedition with front and rear ac?

    When replacing the compressor the dryer should also be replaced, you put 2oz of oil in compressor and stand compressor on pulley for 5 min, then after install turn clutch 10 turns to pump most oil out of compressor, the dryer should have 2 oz of oil also, if you are flushing the ac system out with a solvent then more oil is needed for the system, if your just replacing the compressor then 2oz in compressor.

    Specific oil for hitachi compressors ???

    They make compressor oil, but all you need is non-detergent oil, the little engine spins so fast that it will turn the oil into foam, real quick. I think 30 weight, single viscosity type stuff will do.

    Makita MAC 5200 3 HP 5.2 Gallon electric compressor

    Use non detergent air compressor oil. It can be found at Lowes, Homedepot, and even Walmart. It is sold in small containers for about $2-3 dollars. A synthetic blend air compressor oil is needed when the unit is used in severe conditions. Synthetic air compressor oil sold at Lowes $6.95 and other stores will take more heat. Second choice is 30w non-detergent motor oil. Engine oils tend to produce carbon on the reed valves in the head if used extensively. I have been using the Lowes Kobalt brand of air compressor oil for some years in my Makita and Rol Air compressors with good results. The part number for Makita brand of oil is 18112-A quart size. It is only available by special order where I live. Good Luck!

    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.
