Hi i recently changed my A/C compressor and my mechanic put maybe 2oz of pag oil in it. is it enough or is it to low ,and if it is to low how can i fix this issue. is there a way to inject the oil in without losing the freon. thank's so much.

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Frank, Thank You for writing into AskPatty!! 1-2oz. of PAG or Ester oil added to a fully recharged A/C system is about the normal amount, much is not required to lubricate the entire system. Hope this puts you at ease! A. J. Valle
