"ND-OIL 8 or equivalent" for A/C compressor

Where can I find ND-OIL 8?

Lexus calls out for "ND-OIL 8 or equivalent" for the A/C compressor.

I need to add oil to my A/C system since I'm about to swap out a bad compressor.

are you using a new or used compressor? new comes with oil already. if you're using a used one i'd suggest trying someplace like napa. i know we've gotten it there before.

Thanks.

It's a used compressor.

I forgot to check NAPA. I only checked autozone but they only carry the PAG (sp?) weighted oil that is not recommended for our Jap compressors.

I checked NAPA for this oil and they said they only carry the PAG style and never heard of the ND-oil 8.

I'll check the Lexus/Toyota dealer tommorow.

is it remanufactured compressor? because reman. or new come with oil inside for the whole system. Each component has certain amount of oil in it:::

50% in compressor
10% in receiver-drier
20% in condenser
20% in evaporator

I just went through Toyota A/C systems, hope it will be helpfull...

Hey Lex Luther...does the A/C need to be professionally recharged if the system was disconnected? Any idea how much it'll run?

Not a reman., I bought it used from Doodlebug. So oil will need to be added.

I'll add the 50% as you say.
Then I'll pull a vacuum on it for about 15 min. then check for leaks. If the vacuum holds, then I'll pull vacuum again for an hour to pull all the moister out.
Then I'll add the R-134a to specification.


Q: Do I need to re-add any oil after I pull a vacuum, or does the oil stay inside?

Yes you need proffesional help, or if you can do it yourself, you will just need an A/C Recovery/Evacuate Machine. If you will go to a dealer, they will probably charge you an 1hr to 1hr and a half of labor.

During recovery you will pull some/most oil out of the system. Proper Toyota procedure is to hold vacuum for 30 mins, just to make sure there is no refrigerant or moisture left in it .If it holds vacuum, should be close to 30"hg (i did some toyotas and it was 28-29"hg), it makes sure there is no leaks. When vacuum is done, it pulls oil into the system (you gatta know how much came out during recovery and how much you gatta add). Everything depends on the machine you use, some are automatic and some manual.


Here is some usefull files that should help :::

My Lexus dealer does not carry the ND-OIL 8.

They said they use "FJC universal R134A PAG OIL" when they service A/C systems.

This is nonsense... Here is what it says in my book::: Defferent oils are formulated for the A/C system depending upon the type of compressor design and refrigerant used. USE ONLY the recommended lubricant as specified in the Vehicle Repair Manual.

R134a Refrigerant:

Compressor Typre: Recommended Oil: Part #

Piston(reciprocating) ND-8 08885-09107

Scroll or Rotary ND-9 08885-09117
Through-Vane

Hybrid Electric ND-11 08885-09127

I agree with you 100%. But try to find the ND-OIL and let me know what you come up with. I've had no luck locating it.

The parts guy said he can special order it, but it will cost $80 for a tiny bottle (enough for one A/C system I assume).

The FJC web site has an application chart that list the IS300 with PAG-46.


Do you have any idea how much the compressor holds?
My shop manual only gives me the amount if I replace the condensor.

I believe the original question was: "Where can I find ND 8 oil?"


"ND 8" stands for Nippon Denso oil 8. So this is their version of compressor oil.

On the inside of hood on my Toyota it says "Use ND 8 oil or equivalent."

At my Toyota dealership, they do indeed have ND 8 oil. It's in a big barrel, and it is not for sale to customers.

The equivalent oil that I have found is PAG 46 oil. That is what I ended up using in my vehicle.

This may help some people:

Best of luck to the original poster and others searching for this oil.
