Does my AC compressor need oil?

Default Change AC compressor oil?

-Is there any way to change the oil without removing the compressor? I only need to remove and replace one line in the system so if I don't have to drop the compressor that would be awesome.

Ok so my high pressure line on the AC had a small leak, so until I could fix it I just kept adding r134 (only r134 without any stop leak or oil additives) and then the leak got worse so I just stopped using my AC all together. I got a new line and dryer/accumulator and plan to swap them out. I just want to know if I need to add any oil to the compressor or if I need to change it for any reason? I don't see how I would lose any oil I just want to be sure. Thanks for the help.

Ideally, the system needs to be flushed and new oil added. That way everything is clean and you know that you have the proper amount in the system.

Youre better off to just pull it out since you'll have everything loose anyway.
