Re: New to forum, looking for input on where to introduce PAG oil

I had leaked an unknown amount of oil from the system and I had no way of knowing if i was at the correct (or even close...

My question is twofold. According to the service manual I should drain and record volume of oil removed. If >2.0 add...
