How to add oil to the AC compressor ?

Modern compressors no longer have a dipstick to allow the compressor oil to be checked

All modern compressors require the oil to be drained from the compressor and measured in a graduated container.

If the system had a leak, the measured amount of oil may be lower than specifications. Always refer to the guidelines given by the manufacturer before adding oil.
