I need to know where the orifice tube expansion valve is located on a 2004 chevy venture and any other filter that I need to change on the AC system

the expansion valve (TX valve) is located at the inlet side of the evaporator
. the receiver/drier has to be replaced when the system has been opened
did you install the correct compressor for the type of gas in use
are you charging the system through the correct port using the correct gauge
From what you say is going on , you need the services of an accredited ac specialist shop soon before you blow too much more money

Need to change or clean out Orpheus tube. replaced hoses and compressor every thing check out good but after running ac for a while the clutch fan wont stay ingadge was told it could be a clogged Orpheus...

If the compressor cycles (turns on and off) frequently, and the AC is just cool, then you are likely low on freon. Did you evacuate (pull a vacuum) the system before charging it with freon? This will also cause your problem. The orifice tube is located within a high pressure hose near the radiator or the firewall. Look for diameter size differences in the lines at connections.

Where do I hook the R-134 freon up to charge the system? I can't find the valve to hook up the freon, where is it located

Follow the large tube/hose coming out of the dash to a large aluminum canister that then has a hose or tube that goes to the compressor. It is probably located on the side of that canister (the accumulator) under a little blue screw on cap.. WEAR EYE PROTECTION AND GLOVES WHILE HANDLING REFRIGERANT!
