adding pag oil

chillin on Fri April 11, 2008 4:07 PM User is offlineView users profile

Year: 1988
Make: ford
Model: f150
Refrigerant Type: 134a
Ambient Temp: 80
Country of Origin: United States

after almost a complete retrofit the high side pressure relief was left out and a bad fan clutch caused a high pressure and blew high side charge port cap off and lost all of the 134a and dented the hood. how much dec pag oil should be added before pulling a vacuum?if they would do right the first time could have saved some money and one less dent ! thanks for any replies.

2.5 ounces would be my guess.

I would also charge the system "very carefully" and watch the pressures, you may also have a blockage...consider that when charging the system...

Install a HPCO switch. This site's sponsor as well as other places sell a combo switch and retro service fitting. It screws onto your R-12 high side port instead of a plain R-134a adapter fitting. Splice the wires in series with the existing low pressure switch.
