How much oils to add to the system?

go100map on Sun August 09, 2009 8:56 PM User is offline

Year: 1998
Make: Honda
Model: civic
Engine Size: 1.6

I have got a new compressor, new drier and expansion valve and new condensor for my HONDA CIVIC 98 LX car , I also flush the evaporator with Quest flush fluid got from AutoZone,

I am just wondering how much oils do i need to add? I cannot afford a premature compressor failure .. Thank you so much

A suggestion, before the system is reinstalled in the vehicle is to acquire a good flush and get the Quest flush out of your system. Quest markets two flush chemicals, one is ester based and the other uses mineral spirits as a base. Both of these chemicals are very difficult if not impossible to remove from the system. Each has it's own contamination factor. Just get the stuff out !!! System specs...5 oz PAG 46......23 oz 134a.
Good luck !!!

The Quest fluid I am using is ester based, it says to be compatible with any R134a system. Is there any way to blow all the shit stuff out of my evaporator? I am considering using Dura II (maybe available from DAPA).
If no way to flush the evaporator , maybe I need a evaporator core .. Thanks !

Another question is :

Is it necessary to install a inline fillter for my Civic 98 ? I just wanna invest once and avoid premature compressor which cost me an arm and leg?
