Default WTF is in my AC system? ? ?

This is in a POS s10 Blazer I just bought to use as a work truck.

I was looking around and just checking out all of the engine compartment. I aired out a tiny bit of the AC refrigerant. Silver looking **** came out. Feels oily, but WTF?

AC still blows cold and the compressor seems fine. There seems to be no leaks and everything seems fine.

Should I just wait for the compressor to die? I never flushed out a compressor. There is no way silver AC oil is a good thing.

Any thoughts?

Sounds fair, I never seen one do this yet though.


So far this summer alone I replaced a good two dozen or so. They usually just lock up or burn out.


But, I guess **** happens.
