Does anyone know how much Peg oil and which one should i add to the accumulator when replacing it? Do you need to add any at all? Mine just completely cracked from the rust and i need to replace it but i don't want to have too much or too little oil. Thanks a lot

If you're putting in all new freon, use the small 3 oz can of pag oil and it's PAG oil not pEg oil

As I recall there are three types of oil depending on the compressor you have. Might want to do a bit of research on which compressor you have.

Does it matter which PAG oil? there are different numbers like 45 and 100. Does that matter? and will i be able to read anything from the compression in the car? would it say which oil?

Yes it does matter, otherwise there wouldn't be three different types. You should be able to ID the compressor type from info on the back of the compressor. Then you can call a volvo parts counter and ask which oil for your compressor.
