Without the PAG oil your A/C system will fail so you must replace the compressor now. This is an expensive repair at $800.00
Thanks. Do I need to replace the compressor or rebuild it?
Sorry Buddy, you'll need a new/remanufactured unit.
seek to diagnose it before your compressor dries out bring it to a shop
Can I add PAG oil to compressor as a precaution?
You're probably looking at about $1200-1400 in parts, labor and taxes to repair your a/c system with a new compressor with clutch and drier. If you have the incorrect amount of oil in the system it will not work either. It's best to take it to an A/C specialist who has the proper equipment to diagnose and repair your vehicle. With a special machine they can check for leaks, vacuum the system and recharge it properly.
