Hi. I need to replace a leaking refrigerant line (Mopar 5066523AB Liquid Line/Hose) which runs back to rear evaporator approximately 9 ft. I will also be replacing the receiver dryer. The question I have is how much oil do I need to add for this repair, And what is the easiest way to add it. I will be using 30lb tank and scale to recharge system. thanks for any suggestions

2 ounces of oil added to the drier.

Why not just fix it at the leak- use swageloks- no need to replace the entire line.....

The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
