only time it is acceptable to use the PAG oil in the can is when you pull a part like KLXD stated but you have to dump it all and usually those specs are like 2oz for the condenser or 1 once for the evap or 3 for the dryer ECT... i am just swagging those numbers as im not looking at a manual ATM but honestly the really only way to work on a system is to blow it all out clean, purge with nitrogen, add the new filter dryer and go to town on a charge weighed it. its really bad to have more than +/- 5% and one of those cans is what 3 oz i think or is it 5? Anyways, im just really anal about AC systems and i was always told and i always repeat it, the ONLY things that go into the system are pure whatever, no anything mixed, oil is oil, 134a is 134a, if you have to buy a can of a combo or anything that says leak stopper, your just buying time to sell the car to some smuck or wasting more money!

KLXD never stated anything about 'pull apart' you're attributing things to other people. And the rant I quoted above...it's no wonder that newbie Gli_ryan hasn't posted back since he joined on the 10th.

I was trained for auto AC work at a tech school back in the 80's and for the most part all that I learned still holds true. You'd probably get triggered if I told you that our instructor taught us to charge with liquid vs gas. He was concerned with shop performance and optimizing income for the shop we would ultimately work for. He was a great guy very smart.

For a complete discussion of anything about the B3V conversion I refer you to this thread where everything (I think) was covered pretty well. I probably didn't discuss AC all that much but I'm sure I covered the part about sourcing all the components.

Stop harping at people, especially new members, and before you post make sure what you're posting is coherent.

Steve
