Volvo Air Conditioning – Type and capacity for Refrigerant gas and oil

by: Alexandra M.

Volvo air conditioning compressors require specific types of lubricants and gas.

If the wrong type of compressor oil or the wrong viscosity compressor oil is used, it may damage the compressor. In fact, the main reason for a newly installed A/C compressor to fail is using the wrong type of compressor oil.

Check in the table below what type of compressor oil your Volvo take:
