Likewise, people ask, how much oil do I put in my AC compressor?
For a new compressor, look up the specifications of your AC system. An average car might use a bit of oil (4 oz. ) and two cans of refrigerant R-134a (12 oz.)
Subsequently, question is, can you add too much oil to AC compressor? While installing a new compressor or any other parts in your AC system, it is imperative that you add the correct amount of oil. If you add too much oil to the system, it may pool in various places of the system and can coat the inner walls of the evaporator and condenser coils.
People also ask, do I need to add oil when recharging AC?
You normally do this when recharging the system after replacing one of the major components. This is tricky. The service manual normally tells you how much refrigerant oil should be added with each major component replaced on the AC system. Off-the-shelf cans sometimes come with refrigerant oil in them as well.
Does vacuuming AC remove oil?
Pulling a vacuum will not remove the oil. Most of the time unless you replace your compressor or accumulator you should not need to add oil.
