You must drain the oil in a clear measuring cup and add the appropriate oil to your compressor. The entire system should hold about 4 ounces in the accumulator, 4 ounces in the condenser and about 4-6 ounces in the compressor. I suggest that you also add florescent dye as well to the oil so a leak can be detected in the future. Now this I have based on a front unit only, if it has a dual unit, go by the label that should be under the hood for correct measurements. I use esther oil mainly, it covers all types of AC oils. And can be mixed with all. I hope I have shed some light on your request.
