Need to replace my LS a/c compressor and going to replace the jk condenser, drier and expansion valve at the same time. I lost the original compressor, don't know why but the clutch locked and melted on it.
Replaced it with a salvage unit, thinking the compressors where horrible high to find out they are only about $50 more from rockauto than what I paid for from the salvage yard. I did not replace anything else at that time and the a/c worked ok, not really cold. This one went out on me at the end of last summer, was leaking oil, refrigerant from some where at the compressor.
Now that it is getting hot again, I am getting a "new" compressor and all the components mentioned, just in case the other items are plugged or if the drier is to wet.
My main question is how much oil will this system take? Taking into account that the a/c lines are longer some extra will need to be applied. I just have no idea how much to even start with. Anybody have a good idea as to how much?
