The Autozone web site says 7.00 ounces.
If the system didn't blow a hose and you are only replacing the compressor, I would add 3 ounces of oil to the new compressor through the suction port and turn the comp by hand several revolutions to pump it through.
3 or 4 ounces.
Yes, Because it won't work right if you do not oil.
The capacity is 6.75 oz for '94-99 sentras. They use PAG100 oil.
sometimes 8oz it just depends on your compressor. maybe even 12oz
The oil is in the freon along w/leak detector.
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.
You should be fine with between five to seven ounces.
The systems holds 266 ml (9 oz).......
no, unless u have to remove the compressor unit. The clutch can be replaced with out removing the compressor if you have room to do it.
The whole system probably requires aprox 10 ounces. If your only replacing the compressor I would add 3 ounces into the suction port, then rotate pump clockwise by hand several times before engaging pump.
how much ac oil do i put in my ac copressor
On a 94 GMC Sonoma 2.2 liter engine the compressor calls for Oil Viscosity/Type Pag 150 and capacity of 9 oz of oil. If you need more information on oil viscosity and oil capacity there is a great web site that can help you with most vehicles. www.idqusa.com
You will have to replace the refrigerant, but not the engine coolant.
The ac compressorThe ac compressor
The compressor will seize. They are very costly to replace.
yes because it make the ac longlife
Amount of compressor replacement oilFrom what I've read in other AC Manuals and what I've practiced, with regards to the amount of refrigerant oil to add, is to add the same amount that you drain from the old compressor unit that you removed from your system. This amount, from my experience is about 5 oz, however, it varies from compressor to compressor. The most accurate way to asses this, short of contacting the compressor mfg, is to apply what I said in the first sentence. add 6 ounces for a single ac system and 10 to 12 ounces for a vehicle w/rear air.(like surburbans, vans etc.)
I'm not sure that this is a DIY job. My Haynes manual has no information about actually repairing a compressor. It does, however, go into length about changing out the entire compressor. You should have the system depressurized by a certified AC tech. There are environmental considerations here. Haynes says that when you replace the compressor, to be sure that it A. has oil already in it or B. drain the oil from the old compressor into a graduated container. Add the exact same amount of new oil into the new compressor. When replacing the compressor, you'll also have to replace the accumulator/drier and the expansion (orifice) tube.
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.
