New Member with a 1998 E300 TD - A/C ?
Hi, I have already used the forum section to work on AC problems with my E300 TD. Great help with obtaining diagnostic codes from on-board computer that is actuated using buttons of the center console climate control.
I have replaced A/C parts with new compressor a week ago. System was charged, no cooling, so we checked codes and they indicated a new expansion valve was needed. System coolant was recovered/
Now, expansion valve, and dryer - accumulator have been replaced The system holds vacuum OK with no leaks. I held off putting a 2.2 lb charge of 134A refrigerant into the system because I want to know what type of PAG oil is required and how many ounces are needed?
Thanks for any information, Tom
