I have a small leak coming from the evap area, after advice from this forum, I am going to pull the evap, and replace all the o rings, my question is should I replace the Accumulator too, I figure the system will only be open for a day, the system is all original (1994) anything else I should do???
The required capacity of R134 is between 17 & 19 oz, ok, one can in is 12oz how do I determin how to get 6 more oz in?
If I replace the accumulator, how much oil do I need to add, and there is a sticker on the A/C system that says use Honda Synthetic Pag Oil, do I have to get this from the dealer??

Oil would be PAG 46 and I prefer a DEC PAG. I would replace the drier and drain the old one by drilling a hole in the bottom and measuring the amount. Add that back plus an extra .5 of an ounce. If you find lost of oil in the case when changing the o-rings add a little more.
If you purchase the DEC PAG from us it has dye in it for checking for future leaks.
Ok got on adding the oil, there is already dye in the system, so I am thinking the DEC PAG Blue,.
So far as the R134, after I add the first can 12 oz, do I estimate 6 more oz. or just use the vent temp plus manifold readings ot get the "right" amount of 17-19 oz, I have read all the threads on not charging enough will cause low lubrication to the compressor
thanks TRB for the tips
order in on the way
oh on another note, I was reading tip #1
Why PAG Blue when your system uses PAG46? You can use a scale with cans also. Hissing noise can just be the system equalizing out after shut down.
I thought the DEC PAG Blue was the PAG 46 w/o the dye, ok I'll get the Pag 46 w/ dye,
