Isn't there a decal under the hood with specs?

25.5 oz R134a plus 5 oz PAG 46 oil, according to my info.

That amount of oil would be excessive for a simple recharge, unless the suction or discharge hose failed at the compressor allowing a large loss of oil. With the more common failures of slow leaks at the condensor, evaporator, or lines you usually only need to add about 3/4 of an ounce.

He asked what the factory charge was. I'm not saying it's the appropriate amount for any particular repair... But in a "new" system, that is what Acura uses.
