Refrigerant Type: r134a

Hello, am replacing components of my a/c system. Compressor, accumulator, condenser will be replaced. I have instruction to add 2 ounces of oil to compressor which comes with. I do not have instructions for accumulator and condenser. How would I go about adding oil to them? If oil, in compressor is not enough can i interchange different types of oil with oil already with compressor? Also, if I am short oil after putting it all back together, can I use one of those r134a charge oil cans to replenish what is needed? Thanks.

You should flush the evaporator and add the complete system oil capacity back into the system. Spread the amounts among all the components.

That is understood. But how much would you add to accumulator and condenser since they too are being replaced? No instruction for them, except compressor what specify 2 ounces. Thank you.

Just pour the pour oil in one of the connections.
