Year: 1997
Make: Honda
Model: Civic
Refrigerant Type: r134a

Hello there. Im just doing retrofit on my honda civic and i want to ask how much pag oil the whole system holds. Here on forums i found out it should be 5ounces which is like 150ml, but in my repair manual it says 130ml for compressor, 20ml for condenser, 40 for evaporator , 10 lines and 10 for the reciever drier. I drained oil from condenser,compressor, lines are dry and im gonna change the drier. So now im really confused how much oil should i add. Excuse my english im from europe. Thanks in advance

Unless you see a sticker under your hood stating otherwise, here are the capacities:

Civic 2/3/4-dörrars - Denso-kompressor 1996-2000 R134a 600-650g 140ml PAG 46
Civic 2/3/4-dörrars - Sanden-kompressor 1996-2000 R134a 600-650g 130ml PAG 46
Civic 5-dörrars - Denso-kompressor 1997-2000 R134a 500-550g 120ml PAG 46
Civic 5-dörrars - Sanden-kompressor 1997-2000 R134a 500-550g 130ml PAG 46
Civic 5-dörrars diesel RHD 1997-2000 R134a 560g 135ml PAG 46
Civic 5-dörrars diesel LHD 1997-2000 R134a 640g 135 ml PAG 46

Not sure but I think Hondas in the USA are made in the USA, might be same capacity on everything there?

The numbers per component are an approximate guess to be used only when replacing a few components. If you have a new or flushed dry system, use the total system spec.
