The 1990 Chevrolet S 10 pickup truck 4.3 liter air-conditioner compressor can hold five pounds of Freon. Most Freon recharge kits will tell you when the Freon is full.
If the system was void of any oil it would probably take 8 to 10 ounces of oil for proper lubrication. If you are only replacing the compressor, add three ounces to the suction port and be sure to turn the compressor by hand several turns clockwise after installation to disperse the oil through the pump.
The refrigerant it takes to fill that system is more like 30 to 36 ounces not 5 pounds.
The S10 vehicles with an R4 compressor require different amounts depending on the year model. 1987 and earlier factory require 40 oz of R12 and 88 and later require 56 oz. To convert to R134 use about 85% of that amount.
Considering the Silverado has a 6 lug rim and the S10 has a 5 lug rim, it would be an expensive project to convert the 5 lug S10 into the 6 lug pattern of the Silverado.
the firing order from 1982 thru 1993 chev s-10 and gmc s-15 jimmys are 2.8 liter engines 123456 #er 1 is on the passanger side 4.3 liter engines 165432 #er 1 is on driver side and 1.9 liter, 2.0 liter and 2.5 liter engines 1342 #er 1 is right behind the fan
That's as easy as it gets in the transmission world. If you are mechanically inclined just figure it out. If not, don't touch it.
Any air-conditioner compressor, from a 4.3 liter Chevy engine, will interchange with an air conditioner compressor from a 1997 Chevy S 10. The air conditioner compressors are identical.
4.5 qts with filter change.
Same as the rear.
I came to this stupid site to get answers not to give them. What a waste of time.
A 2001 Chevrolet S10 2.2 liter engine will hold approximately 6 quarts of oil. The recommended oil type is 10 W 30.
