Post Re: A/C Compressor Replacement Recommendations?

1.9 sohc, drain oil from the old compressor. This becomes the amount for new oil to pour into the replacement. Drain any oil from the replacement before pouring in a new amount.

Post Re: Running A/C without A/C diode in fuse block.

Go to a junk yard and you'll find them in fuse boxes. Pick a GM model, any model and pull the diode out for your car. If you find a Saturn, pull the diode out as the closest match.

Re: 05 l300 no speedo and not shifting

Re: A/C - Mildy Cold/Luke Warm at idle - OK at Speed

Major parts replacement (compressor, condenser coil, drier, evaporator coil) requires make-up oil to balance what was removed. Since you're not replacing the compressor, do not add any oil unless oil...
