A/C Refrigerant Oil Replacement

Recommended PAG oil:


  • P/N 38897-P13-003: 120 mL (4 fl·oz, 4.2 lmp·oz)
  • P/N 38898-P13-003: 250 mL (8 1/3 fl·oz, 8.8 lmp·oz)
  • P/N 38899-P13-A01: 40 mL (1 1/3 fl·oz, 1.4 lmp·oz)

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

  • 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; it may damage the paint; if it gets on the paint, wash it off immediately.

Condenser .  35 mL (1 1/6 fl·oz, 1.2 lmp·oz) 
Front evaporator .  40 mL (1 1/3 fl·oz, 1.4 lmp·oz) 
Rear evaporator .  30 mL (1 fl·oz, 1.1 lmp·oz) 
Line or hose .  10 mL (1/3 fl·oz, 0.4 lmp·oz) 
Leakage repair .  25 mL (5/6 fl·oz, 0.9 lmp·oz) 
Compressor .  For compressor replacement, subtract the volume of oil drained from the removed compressor from A, and drain the calculated volume of oil from the new compressor: A - Volume of removed compressor = Volume to drain from new compressor.

NOTE: Even if no oil is drained from the removed compressor, don't drain more than 50 mL ( 1 2/3 fl·oz, 1.8 lmp·oz) from the new compressor.
