adding oil
 
is there an easy way to add oil to a system once it's charged? i recently replaced the coil and forgot to add some oil before i charged it up. i probably don't necessarily need any, but i know there was residual oil in the old evaporator so i just wanted to add a bit to top it off.

Oil pump.

On average. You remove 4 ounces of oil when you recover a system. Do you add oil to every system you recover teh refrigerant for a repair?

Unless you know the system had very poor oil return to the compressor. No need to add oil.
