QUESTIONS FOR ALL OTHER CARS AIR CONDITIONING OIL

1999 All Other Makes All Other Models

Air Conditioning problem
1999 Questions for all other cars 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 142000 miles

The manifold came off the back of the compressor and lost all of it's freon charge.

How do I determine if it is necessary to add compressor oil and if so how much?

What is the proper procedure for adding oil to the system so as not to over/under charge it?

Is there a ratio chart available to determine how much there should be relative to the amount of freon charge? For example, the system requires 32 ounces of freon, is there a specific amount of oil that should be in the system?

Thanks

Hi barney_g,

Different vehicle has different system and the specifications varies.

Without knowing what vehicle and AC system, there is no way to provide any info.
