Total System oil volume for Jetta '01

Year: 2001
Make: VW
Model: Jetta
Engine Size: 1.9
Country of Origin: United States

I am reposting answer that I got, and the rest of my questions. I just wanted to make sure I got it right, so that I don't make any costly mistakes. Thanks for all the help.

Previous post wit answers:

1. If I pull a deep vacuum for more than an hour with good pump (15 micron) will it suck the oil out in the process?

No need to pull a vacuum that long!

2. Should I vacuum in cycles, like pull vacuum to 29.5 then close manifold wait 15 min and then run the vacuum again and so on?

30 minutes let stand for 10 another 30 minutes.

3. Total system oil capacity in Jetta is 4 oz, I read that I should add 1/2 to compressor and 1/2 to rcvr/dryer is that correct? Will it stay there if I deep vacuum it?

System takes more I'll check in the morning. I hate foreign car listings.

4. There is no accumulator in Jetta's AC to my knowledge, but there is something that looks like one, can I flush through it ok?

There is a accumulator/drier on this system and needs to be replaced.

5. Oil flushing the compressor - Do I just pour few oz through suction line?

Yes, and turn the hub a few times to help pump it back out.

The rest of my Questions:

Thanks TRB

I got 4oz of oil for the total system capacity for Jetta '01 from NapaCapacityGuide that I have as a PDF file. Please let me know if you have something different.

Let me make sure I got everything right - after everything is flushed I am going to put 2oz of oil in compressor and 2 oz into new drier/rcvr, after that I will pull vacuum for 30 min at a time twice, letting it boil for 10 min. After that the system will be dry as a bone and ready to be charged.

Is that how it goes?

I show 4.5 ounce, but I'd use 5 ounces on a "clean" system..Add a couple to the compressor, and the rest in the drier..Hope this helps..
