After being down for 2 years, the system may have developed any number of new problems. At the very least, you will have to flush the condenser thoroughly and replace the receiver dryer. You also need to find the cause for the original compressor failure. This could be a condenser or fan problem. There is a very good chance that after sitting for 2 years, you will have problem with the expansion valve sticking. You won't really know until you recharge the system after the repair.

Make sure after flushing the system the proper amount of refrigerant oil is added before charging the system.If you have someone charge the system they should have the info needed as to the amount of oil.
