I’m replacing the A/C compressor and condenser that has a dryer attached to it. I think the compressor gets 7 ounces of oil and do I add oil to the new condenser also and how much?

Hello,

The total capacity is 6.8 ounces.
See attached chart, it shows how much each primary component will need.

Let me know of any questions.
Thank you.

On the chart it says that the condenser gets 2.5 ounces so 4.3 ounces goes in the compressor, and you said the total is 6.8 ounces.
Would this be correct? Just double checking because I don’t want to add too much.

The chart shows how much to add when replacing an individual component. This usually accounts for fluid loss, so it is higher. So, if you are replacing multiple components just be sure not to exceed the total capacity.
