Hello, a 17 year old unit has too many other parts about to go bad, so that it should be replaced and you should not put a new compressor in it... it would be like doing a heart transplant on a 110 year old person

These units do not use oil, if you had to add some, then the oil had migrated from the compressor to the evaporator. IF you do replace the compressor or the entire unit, you will have to get rid of that extra oil you added if it was more than 6 or 8 ounces.
