Air conditioning compressor

Hi! Everyone I have a 2000 GT and at the end of summer my compressor went out, so I got a new one and it says there is a certain weight oil that goes in it does anyone know what it is?

Humm, I know it's only a few ounces. But every compressor could be different. If no one chimes in I'd suggest calling the dealer in the morning. And if I remember correctly the stuff I used to use was called Ester oil. I don't know if it comes in different weights.

Alot of them come pre charged with oil. Make sure it. There should be a tag or paper telling you. If not its just a couple ounces

I'll look it up at work. It should be PAG OIL and prolly 2 oz. I would also suggest adding fluorescent tracer dye to the system.

Sorry I put weight and didn't even think, but I meant viscosity?

PAG OIL Ford part number. F7az-19589-DA (Motorcraft YN-12-C) that is what you need add same amount as drained from old compressor. Spin shaft six to eight times while collecting old oil from compressor. And I would add one once of fluorescent dye.

Take it to a shop...

Its most likely contaminated from the air when you replaced it..

They have a machine that will vaccum/recharge your system..

Oil / Freon / Everything..

I redid my a/c on my truck. I flushed the lines out with alcahol to remove moisture, replaced the orphace tube and drier and rented the vacume pump from autozone. Wasn't a bad job just double checked everything.
