unless you've just replaced the compressor, you shouldn't have to ... get a kit called "a/c recharging for DUMMIES" at the parts store, also
everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the REFERENCE section...make copies of the right sections...good luck :)
there is a tool i use from bg products that allows to add oil with out empting all of the freon
how much ac oil do i put in my ac copressor
The amount of oil charge required for an automotive AC system is specific to the car. There is not standard amount for all cars.
changing ac compressor only, how much oil do i add 2.7 Toyota tacoma 1999.... 6 ounces
Yes, Because it won't work right if you do not oil.
If you only replaced the compressor, 2 to 3 ounces.
You should not put any oil in a Ford air conditioning compressor. The air conditioning compressor runs on Freon. The system should take about one pound of Freon.
The compressors that come with central Ac systems are hermetically sealed and have oil inside. There is no need to add oil. If you are replacing the compressor then flush the line set first then replace, also install a filter drier.
3 or 4 ounces.
The oil is in the freon along w/leak detector.
