replacing refrigerant

Asked by Sep 09, 2015 at 10:04 PM about the 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What type does it use and is it okay to recharge it if I just changed the compressor or does it have to be vacuumed out?

It must be evacuated, why was the compressor replaced? If it locked up then the rest of the system is full of little pieces of compressor, so you really need to remove the dryer and orface tube, or as Chrysler calls it an expansion block, completely flush the system then install a new expansion block and dryer, then measure the amount of oil in the replacement compressor and deduct it from the amount of oil it calls for, pull a vacuum on it for about 30 minutes then shut it off and see if it holds vacuum for at least 15 minutes, if all is good then proceed with the oil charge and then the 134, watch your pressures closely and fill slowly, you want the oil and refridgerant to mix gradually, too fast and you could blow a line or the new compressor.
