unless the compressor came apart on the inside no need to do what U are asking. Put a new compressor on and add 2oz of oil plus what ever comes out of the old one.

if the oil smells burnt or looks brown when u open it up then flush everything if not install new part and away u go. Whats the point of flushing out a condenser if there was anything in there it would end back up in the condenser when u start the system back up.
