    Comments about Interdynamics R-134a PAG 46 Refrigerant Oil (8 oz.):

    I didn't think I was going to use all the oil so I bought this one with the cap. Ac hose broke, didnt know how much oil leaked out so I added 3/4 to the dryer I replaced. I have the rest for future use.

    Not for FORD, not DEC oil

    By DoItRight

    from Columbus, Ohio

    Comments about Interdynamics R-134a PAG 46 Refrigerant Oil (8 oz.):

    This is not DEC (double end capped) PAG oil. Ford recommends ONLY DEC PAG46 in their compressors. Uncapped or single-end capped oils absorb moisture which can lead to the formation of acids inside the refrigerant system, causing corrosion from within, leading to system leaks, possible catastrophic compressor failure ('black death')

                      A:

                      These are the common reasons for Air Conditioner does not work at idle. 1. The cooling fan for the condenser is not working. 2. The car could be overheating - caused by something else other than the cooling fan. 3. Heat transfer from the radiator to the condenser can alter efficiency, if the car is overheating. 4. The Air Conditioner compressor may not be pumping sufficiently at slower RPM's (revolutions per minute). 5. An expansion valve may not be regulating the refrigerant correctly. 6. Condenser fins could be bent or the condenser could be obstructed by foreign debris. We would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                      A:

                      Vacuum down the system first, to be sure you don't have any leaks. If the system is tight, add the oil (the vacuum will help empty the oil can). I would vacuum it again for awhile - I would recommend at least an hour - to get rid of any residual moisture and air that might have gotten in the system from putting in the oil. At that point I'd let in the first dose of refrigerant (one can, or about 12 ounces), then start the car and see if the compressor will cycle without you having to bypass the low pressure shutoff. The refrigerant going in should help move the oil toward the compressor, and as you finish the charge it should finish dispersing the oil throughout the system. "Most" compressors are sold with a small amount of oil inside so you're in no great danger of burning up the compressor initially, and using this method will help ensure you're OK.

                      A:

                      There really isn't a way to tell exactly how much you need. The only real way to have the correct amount put in the system is to evacuate and vacuum down the whole system and then recharge it with the proper amount. Wait until vehicle is completely cooled off. Fill the radiator until it is full. With the radiator cap off, start vehicle. If fluid goes down, pour more in until it levels off. Shut vehicle off and put the cap back on. If reservoir is low fill it to proper level.
