Denso conpressor, calls for PAG46, I put in PAG100! Problem???

Postby wamcneil » Sat Aug 19, 2017 10:18 am

Hi All,
How bad did I screw up??? I ordered PAG46 from ACKits.com, but they sent me PAG100! When I replaced the compressor/condenser/dryer, I just grabbed it out of the box and put it in the system without really looking at it.
Then later on looked at the oil bottle and thought 'hmm, that looks odd. I would have sworn PAG46 was required, but I'm POSITIVE I ordered the right oil'.
So I looked up my order on ackits.com, and sure enough I did order Ultra PAG46.
Should I be pulling out the compressor and changing the oil with any sense of urgency? Or is it OK to have PAG100 where PAG46 is spec'd?

You will be fine with either PAG46 or PAG100.
