Following AC System Service, How Much Oil Is Needed?

Learn how to determine the correct amount of oil to add when replacing the compressor in an AC system.

So, you just got the parts in for an AC job. You’re replacing the compressor, and now you’re wondering how much oil should be added to the system?

This has confounded technicians for decades because it’s really unknown how much is already in the system and it’s not going to be on that label underneath the hood on most vehicles. The key is to look up the quantity of oil for the system and also what components you’re replacing. Depending on the manufacturer, you may have to add only two ounces of oil if you’re replacing an evaporator, three ounces for replacing the condenser. In some cases, you may have to use four ounces when you replace the compressor, but this is going to change depending on the vehicle.
