PAG OIL IN COMPRESSOR? (99 Ford Ranger)

Postby Leigh-a » Tue Jul 11, 2017 7:42 am

I recently replaced all components, with UAC products, except the Evaporator--which was properly flushed; and then added the specified amount of PAG-oil to the system.

When charging the system, it leaked at the High-side Coupling (P-nut) fitting, due to a manufacturing defect in the new UAC Condenser!

I need to replace the new Condenser, & Accumulator/drier; and intend to re-flush the Evaporator, but I'd prefer to leave the new UAC Compressor "in-place".

As such, the only remaining PAG oil will be in the Compressor + residual in the Hoses.

I need to know, how much PAG-oil would remain in the installed Compressor; in order to determine how much additional PAG-oil will be needed in the system?
