1. A/C Refrigerant Oil - Replace

Recommended PAG oil: DENSO ND-OIL 8

P/N 38897-PR7-A01AH: 120 mL (4 fl oz)

It is important to have the correct amount of refrigerant oil in the A/C system to ensure proper lubrication of the A/C compressor. Too little oil damages the A/C compressor; too much oil reduces the cooling capacity of the system, and can produce high vent temperatures.

  • To avoid contamination, do not return the oil to the container once dispensed, and never mix it with other refrigerant oils.
  • Immediately after using the oil, reinstall the cap on the container, and seal it to avoid moisture absorption.
  • Do not spill the refrigerant oil on the vehicle, because it may damage painted surfaces. If refrigerant oil contacts the paint, wash it off with water immediately.

Add the recommended refrigerant oil in the amount listed if you replace any of the following parts:
