1998 Chrysler Sebring Oil and Charge Specs

Troy1982 on Tue August 24, 2010 4:25 PM User is offline

Year: 1998
Make: Chrysler
Model: Sebring Convertible
Engine Size: 2.5 V6
Refrigerant Type: R134A

Could someone tell me the type and quantity of oil that should be used on this car? And also how much refrigerant it's supposed to be charged with? The car had front end damage, and the piece of sheet metal that has the sticker with this information on it was discarded. I am replacing the lines, drier, condenser, and compressor on the car. Also, should I put some oil on all of the new o-rings before installation? Thanks.

Refrigerant and ol capacities and I would use oil or Nylog assembly lube on all the O rings...

There seems to be a possible issue with the posted information. The Sanden compressor listed for this vehicle is a scroll design and this compressor requires PAG 46 not PAG 100. This information is suppled by Four Seasons and is quite antiquated. Most modern specification information will list the PAG 46 for the Sanden equipped vehicle.
A strong suggestion...if the vehicle does indeed have the scroll design compressor.....and it suffered a severe failure....lock up, burned clutch, excessive noise.....replace the condenser as part of the repair.
One major compressor supplier actually requires the condenser replacement for warranty on all scroll compressor replacements. Yep, its that bad. The contamination can be extensive and flushing, without the use of specialized equipment has proven to be almost impossible.
