I installed a new AC compressor on the Solstice of Sorrow the other day, but haven't turned it on yet. I'm planning on recharging the system this evening.
Now, before I do this: am I supposed to oil the compressor or anything? The new unit (AC Delco) has some oil in it, but I'm not sure if that's supposed to be adequate, or if it's the correct oil. I hope it's the correct oil as I don't see a good way to drain it.
It's this one:
AC Delco 15-21505
It would also be nice if it were possible to check the system for leaks before refilling it with expensive refrigerant. :/
