flushing after using ez chill

Year: 1999
Make: chevy
Model: prizm
Engine Size: 1.8
Refrigerant Type: r134a

I made the mistake of using one of the DIY recharge and sealers in a can before I did my homework on what it takes to properly repair my a/c. I've found out that I need to replace the seals in my v5 compressor and I'm wondering how hard it's going to be to clean the sealer out of the system. I used interdynamics "ez chill". Does anybody know much about this stuff and how well it flushes out? I'm planning to replace the seals and accumulator myself and have a shop vac and charge the system. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

Flush back to bare metal where you can.

ID will not even tell you what is in it in the MSDS:


Only that 20 percent or so was some unknown chemical. If you scroll all the way to page 6 they admit to some Methylene Chloride.

Probably mostly solvents meant to swell O rings. Flush it well replace all the O rings.
