hi everyone.i just replaced the ac condensor in my 96 deville.i was wondering how many pounds 134a and oil charge i needed to recharge the system?i was looking for a tag under the hood but if one was there its gone.the autoparts stores and the dealer cant seem to give me a straight answer.the dealer told me they didnt know.the truth about that is they didnt want to look it up.see if i go to them for anything lol.i can do everything else i just need to know how much goes back in.thanks everyone in advance.

If that is the only component you replaced you'll likely want to add about 2 oz. of PAG oil and most of those systems of that era used about 2.0 pounds of R-134a.
Only way to look it up is in the book, some folks don't even know how to use the books anymore.
I have one at work, but I am still at home.
