When a failed Alfa Romeo 155 air conditioning compressor is replaced by a new Alfa Romeo 155 a/c compressor, it is so important to have the lubricant distributed evenly across the Alfa Romeo 155 air conditioning compressor and the Alfa Romeo 155 a/c system before engaging the system for the first time.

If this is overlooked and the Alfa Romeo 155 air con compressor is engaged immediately after is has been charged with refrigerant, it may happen that all the oil in the Alfa Romeo 155 a/c compressor will be pushed out all at once while there is no oil yet to enter the Alfa Romeo 155 air conditioning compressor on the other side. This is caused by the fact that it takes some time for the oil to spread across the system and mix with the refrigerant. Eventually the Alfa Romeo 155 ac compressor may be damaged because of a lack of lubrication during the first few minutes of operation.


This will of course be more problematic after the system has been flushed, this will mainly be the case after the Alfa Romeo 155 air con compressor has suffered a catastrophic failure with metal particles from the Alfa Romeo 155 a/c compressorbeing spread across the entire system.


A rule of thumb guide when installing a new Alfa Romeo 155 air con compressor is to manually turn the Alfa Romeo 155 a/c compressor pulley
to make sure that the oil is distributed through the Alfa Romeo 155 air con compressor evenly. Experienced engineers will
normally turn the Alfa Romeo 155 ac compressor 10—15 times to ensure that oil has been pushed around the system.


There is still more to do to prepare the Alfa Romeo 155 air con compressor, knowing and following the procedure will be of
great importance if a newly installed Alfa Romeo 155 air conditioning compressor should fail after a short period of time and within
its warranty period. There is no bigger disappointment than having a warranty claim denied because
something as simple as the following procedure has been overlooked.


Generally new Alfa Romeo 155 a/c compressors are supplied charged with oil, but it is always recommended that you
check this by draining the new Alfa Romeo 155 air con compressor to check the amount of oil in the Alfa Romeo 155 air conditioning compressor.


Then once you have removed the old Alfa Romeo 155 a/c compressor you should do the same again, empty the old Alfa Romeo 155 ac compressor of oil to see how much oil was in it and then fill the new Alfa Romeo 155 air con compressor with the same amount this is to avoid over charging the system with oil.


After this has been done and the Alfa Romeo 155 a/c compressor has been fitted, you do not engage the Alfa Romeo 155 air con compressor with the engine running until the following steps have been followed.


1, Open all air louvers at the dash board, 2, Start the engine and let it stabilise at idle speed 3, Set blower at maximum speed, 4, Engage the Alfa Romeo 155 a/c system and operate it continuously for 2 minutes at below 1500 rpm.


After the two minutes the Alfa Romeo 155 air con compressor oil will have distributed evenly throughout the Alfa Romeo 155 a/c system.
