Default URGENT!** How much PAG oil goes into an A/C Compressor?


* 91' Camry
* Brand New R134A compressor
* Has sticker that says "Note: ADD PAG OIL"
* I have an 8oz bottle of UV Dyed PAG Oil
* How much do I put into the A/C Compressor?

Hi all,

I've been driving around a '91 camry for the last few months after I wrecked my 05 scion TC. In the mean time, I've been recovering from the wreck, car shopping, and getting the insurance claim/medical bills taken care of with the TC. Now, the '91 camry I've always had, but about 2 years ago the AC went out. PAG oil was everywhere. It is hot as hell this summer, and I am riding in my once back-up car, and decided that I really need AC.

I bought this compressor kit off of ebay:


At this point in the middle of the night, I have the drier/filter installed, and I have the old compressor out of the car. The new one is ready to install once I hear back on how much PAG oil I should put in.

I noticed that this auction states that the compressor is FILLED UP with the PAG oil. Am I just supposed to fill the compressor to the brim?


ANY help is GREATLY appreciated. Much internet love.

Thank you!

Might be a brighter idea to contact the vendor you bought it from on ebay, or your local toyota service dealer, that the only way you will ge the correct information.

It varies based on what compressor it is.

I was told to put in 6oz. into my Sanden, after draining all the old oil out.

However as said in prior posts, ask the factory dealer to get it correct!!
