Engine Size: 3.0 V6
Refrigerant Type: R-12
I am replacing the compressor, receiver/dryer, expansion valve and condenser. I have flushed the hoses and evaporator. I will flush the new condenser when I get it (on order). I can't be sure of the quantity of oil in the replacement compressor until I drain it, nor do I know what type it is. I plan to use 525 mineral and recharge with R-12. If I drain the oil from the compressor and everything else is oil-free, how much mineral oil do I need to add for the entire system?
Total oil capacity is 6 ounces.
Thanks Tim! I have a Haynes Automotive Heating and Air Conditioning Techbook. It specifies "System refrigerant oil capacity" of 4.30 oz. It was wrong about another of my vehicles, so I don't trust it. I have a genuine Toyo repair manual which only describes how much oil for individual component replacement.
This adds up to 6.8, but I expect that when replacing individual components you need to add back a bit.
