AC issue. need opinions

Hi all.

I had to replace the ac compressor, orifice tube, and a few other parts related with the AC on my 1997 Deville.

It blows cold and works good if driven daily,

But if the car sits for a few days and I turn the AC on the compressor makes a noise that does not sound good. Sounds like it is straining for a few seconds, then all is fine.

I am thinking maybe there is too much oil in the system.. Does it seem like I have the right idea. Only reason why I think that is because it does not do it unless the car sits for more than a day or so.

Before I discharge it and check the oil I figured I would see if it sounds familiar to anyone else.

Thanks

I drain the compressor of its contents and add 2 oz of oil and that's it. In this case to much of a good thing (oil) harms system performance.

More than likely that is what I did when I installed it, but that doesn't mean it didnt already have too much.

Is it possible to do it without removing it... Hmm
