SOURCE: expansion valve location

raven 1g: Your car doesn't use an expansion valve. It uses a fixed orifice tube which is located in the smaller of the two A/C lines, just before they enter the cabin area of the car.
Just disconnect the line and pull the orifice tube out of the line. Be careful not to break off anything and leave it in the line.

SOURCE: Where is the expansion valve located on a 98 Grand Am 3.1?

Grand Am has an expansion valve. Link below has part number and picture of what you are looking for.
http://www.discountacparts.com/addtocart~year~1998~make~Pontiac~model~Grand_AM~descript~A-C_Compressor~part~60-40281.asp

Unfortunately, I do not know precisely. But for the most part auto a/c's are all the same. Below I will describe how to find it. I have also included a aguide to determine system operability that may or may not be helpful. Just trace the system with flow path described below the valve has to be between condensor and evaporator.

Reminder the flow for the a/c system is :
1. From the compressor a high pressure (HP) gas goes to the condenser in front of the radiator.
2. From the condenser a HP liquid goes to an expansion device (orifice tube or expansion valve)
3. From expansion device the low pressure gas enters the firewall to the evaporator.
4. From evaporator the low pressure liquid/gas mixture goes through the dryer2_bing.gif back to the compressor suction.

Below is a guide to troubleshoot and check system function. This can be done by most folks.

Look at the front of the ac compressor and have someone turn on the ac from inside the car. The front of the pulley(clutch) will spin when turned on.

If it does not spin, the low pressure switch (LPS) is not satisfied. Meaning there is not enough freon in the system to operate the system. Means low freon capicity because of a leak.

The LPS can be jumpered to cause the compressor to run (clutch to engaged) which will draw the freon in the system.

The LPS is usually a two wire sensor on the suction of the compressor. (between evaporator and compressor) Unplug the sensor and install a jumper, this will engage the clutch. Connect a new can of freon
and fill to system capacity.

The capacity of the ac system will be on a label under the hood, do not overfill. Probably about 2 lbs. Local parts stores (Auto Zone and Advance) will have freon with stop leak. This may help the leak. They also make a freon with a UV dye. I always add a single can with dye so that if stop leak does not work I can find the leak in the future.

The system should be filled until suction pressure is about 30 to 38 psi..

SOURCE: Can't find rear a/c expansion valve, where is it

I am in the process of doing the same procedure on my 2001 durango 5.9... condensor, compressor, accumulator, followed by both front and rear expansion valves. I pulled the rear passenger side trim off after following the pipes to the back. It looks like the expansion vale is the first component hooked to the pipes just as they come through the body into the cabin. It appears to be wrapped in a black sticky mat... I did not unwrap yet so it may not be... What are your failure symptoms? I have a slow leak and a blockage inside the system to where it cannot be fully charged without releasing pressure from the rear of the compressor. I sure hope its not in the evaporator core...

Where is expansion valve located


The Expansion valve is located in the evaporator box

On this year Nissan it's not to bad of a job. The dash doesn't need to be removed like the newer cars.

  1. To replace the expansion valve, you will need to discharge the AC system. Remove the two AC lines from the evaporator.
  2. Then you will need to remove the glove box
  3. Then you will need to unbolt the evaporator box
  4. Tip it back and remove.
  5. Once you have the evaporator box removed, then you can replace the expansion valve. I would also clean the evaporator box as well since you will have it removed.

Replace ac expansion valve


t isn't necessary to remove the wiper or the false bulkhead cover. the valve is accessible in the engine compartment with simply removing the air collector and air box. These instructions had me baffled because all i was exposed to when i removed the wiper system was the cabin fan. The valve is located on the passenger side directly under the power steering rack. its hard to see right off, so if you have a hard time
finding it, locate the large and small medal pipes and follow them to the firewall and you'll see the valve. After finding it, it took about 30 mins
to replace.

Where is the expansion valve located on the 2004 KIA Sedona


Kia Sedona expansion FRONT valve located under dash, behind glove box, fan and coil. Evacuate freon first. Disconnect Freon lines from firewall., Lay right front seat back to flat horizontal position and lay on top or totally remove the seat for easier working access. Remove under dash cover, fan, glove box, coil housing, remove coil mounting bolts, remove old expansion valve. (Inspect old valve, if debris inside, blow out coil before installing new valve. If visible debris best to consider replacing REAR expansion valve and DRIER/FILTER in front of radiator too and blow out all lines and coils while servicing.) Use compressor oil to lubricate "O" rings on new FRONT or REAR expansion valve, install valve bolts, reinstall coil bolts to FRONT firewall or REAR frame, reconnect freon lines to firewall in engine compartment. Evacuate AC system, install freon (35 1/2 ounces, nominal 3 pounds), check system for leaks, check for proper operation, enjoy.

Location of ac oriface on 1991 toyota carolla


Hello
Toyota doesn't use a fixed Orifice, they use what is called an "Expansion Valve" both part serve the same purpose to lower the pressure of a high pressure fluid to a low pressure gas. The expansion valve is located at the inlet to the AC evaporator core in the dash. Below is a picture of the valve.
