Air Conditioning problem
2001 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I need to know what else to replace when
i installed a new compressor.
Also how much oil goes in the compressor.
Where is the screen located, is it in the
expansion valve or expansion block.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi mercury1234,

Recommended PAG oil: SANDEN SP-10

P/N 38897-P13-A01AH: 120 Ml (4fl-oz)

P/N 38899-P13-A01:40 Ml (1 1/3 fl-oz)
Add the recommended refrigerant oil in the amount listed if you replace any of the following parts.

To avoid contamination, do not return the oil to the container once dispensed, and never mix it with other refrigerant oils.

Immediately after using the oil, reinstall the cap on the container, and seal it to avoid moisture absorption.

Do not spill the refrigerant oil on the vehicle; it may damage the paint. If it gets on the paint, wash it off immediately.

Condenser. 25 Ml (5/6 fl. Oz)
Evaporator. 45 Ml (1 1/2 fl. Oz)
Line or hose. 10 Ml (1/3 fl. Oz)
Receiver/Dryer. 10 Ml (1/3 fl. Oz)
Leakage repair.25 Ml (5/6 fl. Oz)

Compressor - For compressor replacement, subtract the volume of oil drained from the removed compressor from 130 Ml (4 1/3 fl. Oz), and drain the calculated volume of oil from the new compressor: 130 Ml (4 1/3 fl. Oz) - Volume of removed compressor = Volume to drain from new compressor.

Even if no oil is drained from the removed compressor, don't drain
more than 50 Ml (1 2/3 fl. Oz) from the new compressor.

Recommended parts to replace would be the receiver drier and expansion valve. Depending on the reason for replacing the compressor, hoses, condenser and the evaporator would be recommended to be flushed if the oil in old compressor is dirty.

What screen are you referring to?
