I have a rebuilt compressor for my AC. Does anyone know the exact amount of compressor oil that is recommended? 93 loyale 1.8 spfi
AND...does it matter whether I pour it into the high or low pressure port?
thanks

hi, the amount depends on which compressor your system has, there were several different types used on these vehicles, and i think there should be a plug in the case for adding oil on a dry unit, but intake side if not i believe.

Only fill it back up to what comes out.. I know it sounds stupid :-/

When i did my AC system in my 95 legacy the FSM showed how much oil went into each part of the system.. I do remember the evaporator took the most.
