    Need to recharge AC... What type of oil does the compressor use?

    As the title says, I need to recharge AC system after replacing the condenser. What type of oil does the compressor need and how much?

    Thanks,
    ML

    All I will say is you should take it to an a/c shop. The omly way to determine the amount of oil is to take the compresser off and dump the oil then put in the correct amount.

    Shop manual says the system needs 35ml of Denso ND-OIL 8 (this is a PAG 46 refrigerant oil, IIRC) after changing only the condenser. If any other oil leaked out of the lines while they were disconnected, or any oil was withdrawn while pulling off the refrigerant prior to "breaking" the lines, this will have to be accounted for and replaced, too.
