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

You can add air conditioning refrigerant to your 2000 F1 50 pickup truck air conditioning system through the low pressure port. The low pressure port will be on the top of the air conditioning compressor.

You can add Freon to your 1999 Chevrolet S 10 pickup truck cooling system, through the air conditioning compressor ports. The ports are located on the top of the compressor. You would add r134 refrigerant through the low pressure port located on the accumulator/dryer.

R-134 freon is the GAS used. You also need to add a lubricating oil, known as PAG100 (Polyalkelene Glycol). This is a special oil, which also helps form a seal around the compressor, to keep the refrigerant gas in.

There is no drain plug for air conditioning. All is done through the service ports with a recovery / charging station machine. Some gm compressors have a crank case plug, but that is not a drain plug; it is to add oil when servicing the compressor.

Surge is a point when compressor is not add enough energy to overcome system resistance.

Remove the compressor and pour it in. If its making noise its probably to late and you will need to replace it.

Adding freon to an air conditioning unit should only be done by a certified technician. It is in fact illegal for anyone to add freon to air conditioning that isn't properly certified, so one would add freon by calling in a certified technician to do it for them.

the port to add freon is under the car in front of engine coming off the compressor hard to get to but can be done

Its always best to drain the oil from the old compressor and then add that same amount back to the new compressor but to be on the safe side add 4 ounces and prime it on the bench first...

Your 1990 has R12 refrigerant in it which isn't available anymore at parts stores. To add refrigerant to your vehicle you will have to get the a/c system vaccuumed and retrofitted to accept new r134a refrigerant and pag100 compressor oil. You can take it to a shop to get it vaccuumed and retrofit it yourself with kits from your local Autozone. -broncomudder89

To add Freon to a 1994 Volvo 850 you will need to buy 4 cans of Arctic Ice and one can of blue dye. Use the spray can nozzle to attach to the air conditioning compressor and add the Freon. I am a certified auto AC tech and would not recommend putting 4 cans of Freon in a car AC system all at once. If you do not have gauges then put one can of Freon (refrigerant) in at a time. Have the air conditioner turned up on high, the car running and begin adding the Freon while shaking the can. When the compressor kicks on ( you should hear the compressor click on) you should almost be finished. If the compressor cycles in and out quickly this means you need more Freon. If the compressor clicks on and runs for a minute or 2 then put no more Freon in the system.
