be carefull, if its a new compressor, than it needs oil and it's tricky, because you don't know if someone else has added oil, and how much is in the lines etc...
too much oil can cause problems....
Get the new recharging Kit called "A/C for Dummies" at a chain parts store, and read up...you'll get all the tips and tricks a pro would use...also..
Everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and a professional shop manual should be available at your local library, just make copies of the right pages, as they are usually REFERENCE only...read up and good luck :)
Ok lets make it simple!!
First you need to look at your old ac compressor it will tell you how much oil
is required . Call your local auto parts store to get the correct type this is very important. In the back of the compressor where the ac lines connect is where
you install the oil put half on the low side (suction) the the rest on the other side. Also turn the clutch by hand on the compressor about 12 times to lube
the seal or it will have a leak. To find the suction side turn the ac clutch by hand
and see which side sucks in the oil. Hope this helps!! Good luck
NO, it does not.
No, the oil will run out of the compressor causing it to seize. An air conditioner can be stored on it's side but if it is allow 24 hours before starting it.
No, oil will ruin the clutch. Noise that sound like you need oil means a bearing or the compressor has failed.
NO If the unit is on its side or upside down, the oil can run out of the compressor and it will seize up. They do make a vertical air conditioner to fit into the taller windows which open side to side.
Proper way is to properly dispose of current 134a, vacuum system, ensure system holds vacuum for 15 minutes, add proper amount of compressor oil, then properly add 134a.
The Mazda Miata air conditioning drain to can be found on the bottom of the air conditioner compressor. The drain to runs to the bottom of the oil pan.
Yes since the a/csystem also has refrigerate oil in it the oil will drop down to the lowest parts of the system and this can lead to o-ring, compressor and compressor seal failure.......
Air tool Oil
Absolutely not!! It will ruin it. It is designed to work in a wall in a horizontal position. The compressor depends on internal oil to keep itself lubricated and cool ,,,,The oil will plug up the compressor and just not work.
The complete system 8 ounces...... Just the a/c compressor, 4 ounces...
it is best to store an air conditioner upright the way it sits in the window. if you must store it on its side be sure to leave it upright at least 24hours so the oil that is in all the lines can settle back into the compressor.
Many people drive cars and do not think about the important components that make a car run efficiently until something needs repairing. The air conditioner system is one of those parts of a car that many people depend on for comfort, but are not sure how to care for it. An air conditioner system in a vehicle works to remove the heat from the inside of the vehicle. A car's air conditioner system has many components. The AC compressor is an integral component of an automobile's air conditioning system, functioning to pressurize the Freon so that cool air travels through the air conditioner system.Replacing the AC CompressorSimilar to other parts on an automobile, the AC can stop functioning properly and need to be replaced. A primary sign that the AC compressor has stopped working is when the air conditioner system blows out warm air when the car is idle. Before replacing the AC compressor, you should check if the car has Freon, which works with the compressor to cool the air. The level of oil within a vehicle also affects the way the AC compressor functions. A vehicle with too much oil may cause the compressor to not work properly, while a car with not enough oil can result in the compressor not working at all. Replacing the AC compressor requires using special tools specifically designed for compressor parts. Allowing a professional mechanic to change your compressor gives you the best chance that the repairs will be done correctly.Price of the AC CompressorThe price of an AC compressor depends on the make and model of the vehicle, but the compressor is one of the most expensive parts to replace in the air conditioner system. To preserve your AC compressor for as long as possible, auto mechanics recommend that you run your AC compressor on a regular basis. Mechanics recommend you run your AC compressor at least 10 minutes a month during the cold season, if the heating and defrost system in your car does not use the compressor.
The main difference between an oil free compressor and an oil flooded compressor is the method of injection to compress the air for mechanical equipment, most common being construction equipment. In the oil free compressor, air is injected with screws while an oil flooded compressor uses oil injected into the holes to create a seal.
What kind of air compressor is it? And if it is oil lubricated no!
The air conditioner has failed in some way. Either the compressor has failed or the pressurized refrigerant has leaked out. DO NOT operate the air conditioning until the problem has been fixed, the refrigerant contains oil to lubricate the compressor, which, if the refrigerant has escaped, will be damaged without lubrication. Don't turn a cheap fix (refrigerant recharge) into a very expensive one (replace compressor).
PAG oil goes in the air conditioner compressor. It is added in the same place as the refrigerant. However, this oil must be added before the lines for adding the refrigerant are put in place.
Yes you can actually and it's much cheaper than using compressor oil that is non detergents. The nice thing about air tool oil is you can use it for up to 7000 hours on the air compressor before needing to chang it.
It is standard procedure to flush contamanated oil from system. if the compressor went bad . also the orfice tube.
Compressor oil ! ( light clear mineral oil)
I am retrfitting ac on 93grand am and the refridgerant cans to recharge it say "includes oil". I have to have the ac system evacuated and was told this would pull most of the oil from compressor out. One guy said the oil weren't compatible so I should remove compressor and dump the oil out the back of it. Hope this helped
Needs to be done by person certified to handle refridgerant properly evacuate system replace compressor vaccuum system and leak check properly add correct type and amound of compressor oil properly add refridgerant
if your uing air tools on the compressor then you will put one or two drops directly into the inlet where you connect the compressor hose
There could be a wide variety of reasons. You might have blockage in the system, you might have too little or too much refrigerant in the system, you might have too much or too little compressor oil in the system, the dessicant in your accumulator or receiver-drier could be saturated... what you need to do is have a system performance test done on your AC system.
No oil in compressor - wether it works or not, it still needs that special ac oil -
