2006 Ford F250 6.0 diesel AC accumulator replacement..how much oil?

Postby TurboTravis » Wed Aug 05, 2020 11:22 am

Hey guys,

I have been a member on here for a long time, but I forgot my old login info and had to make a new name. Anyway, can someone check and see how much oil (PAG46) to add to the new accumulator when it is replaced on a 2006 Ford F250 6.0 diesel?

Thanks,
Travis

Drill a hole in the bottom and measure what comes out. That amount of fresh oil goes in the new one

I'd add half an oz/1 oz to that amount to be sure, since some will stay inside bound to the metal wall and to the desiccant media. A little more oil is always better than a little less

Just replacing the accumulator? 2 ounces. The desiccant bag retains oil.
