Last summer my AC locked up. In speaking to some one else I was told that I need to have the system vacuumed out before I install a new compressor.

Not before, after. Actually the system should be thoroughly flushed out after a compressor failure, the compressor installed, and then the entire system evacuated, leak checked, then charged. The repair should also include a new filter drier.

Good luck,
