When a new compressor is installed it is filled with appropriate oil through the oil plug in the unit. When the refrigerant is added it mixes with the oil for lubrication. Questions. When a system is evacuated or has leaked empty, is there any oil left in the compressor? If so, how do you know how much oil is needed to recharge? Or does all of the oil/ester mix with the charge? Answers to these questions will help not only myself but also many recent posters. TIA
