SOURCE: where is the orifice tube on a 98 Buick LeSabre

not exactly sure but using info below you can find it.

Remember 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.

There will be about a 1" nut on the low pressure line between the firewall and the compressor. Remove nut and on the male side use a pair of kneedle nose pliers and remove orifice tube. Note orientation of tube.

Replace tube, reassemble, evacuate air from system, recharge with freon.

Where is the orifice tube on an expedition 2001 with dual ac


On most any Ford vehicle, the orifice tube is hidden directly in the pressure line just before it goes into the evaporator core (the little radiator looking device hidden underneath your dash). There should be a quick disconnect where the lines go together by the accumulator. The orifice tube will be wedged in the aluminum line. If you look closely, you will actually be able to see an indentation in the aluminum line that prevents the orifice tube from slipping too far into the aluminum line. The orifice tube on a Ford almost ALWAYS requires the use of an orifice tube removal tool. Hope this helps.

Where is the orifice tube located to put a new one in?


The orifice tube is located inside the liquid line where it connects to the condenser. This line is located on the passenger side of the car and has the low side charge port on it. this line unscrews right where the orifice tube is located... Hope this helps

Where exactly is the orifice tube located at on a 1996 (DOHC v6)?


it's in the high pressure liquid line.

A/C Evaporator Core Orifice The A/C evaporator core orifice (19D990) should be replaced whenever the A/C compressor (19703) is replaced for lack of performance (internal damage). The A/C evaporator core orifice, located in the condenser to evaporator tube (19835), cannot be serviced in detail as a component of the line. If replacement is necessary, follow the procedure outlined for Liquid Line Removal and Installation. An orifice tube replacement service kit may be used as an optional service procedure. Refer to Section 12-00 for information regarding the use of an A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Replacement Kit E5VY-19D695-A.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Replacement Kit Installation
  1. Discharge A/C refrigerant system. Refer to System Discharging and Recovery as outlined.
  1. Remove condenser to evaporator tube (19835) from vehicle.
  1. Locate A/C evaporator core orifice (19D990) by three indentations or a circular recess in metal portion of the condenser to evaporator tube.


    A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Location

  1. Note angular position of ends of condenser to evaporator tube so that it can be reassembled in correct position.
  1. Cut a 63.5 mm (2.5 inch) section from condenser to evaporator tube at A/C evaporator core orifice location. Do not cut closer than 25.4 mm (1 inch) from start of a bend in tube.


    A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Section Removed From the Liquid Line

  1. Remove contaminants from the two pieces of the condenser to evaporator tube.
  1. NOTE: The inlet half of the condenser to evaporator tube will be positioned against the A/C evaporator core orifice tabs when correctly assembled.

    Lubricate fitting with clean refrigerant oil and assemble orifice tube kit (with A/C evaporator core orifice installed) to condenser to evaporator tube. Make sure flow direction arrow is pointing toward evaporator end of the condenser to evaporator tube, and taper of each compressor ring is toward compression nut.

Replaced ac compressor for 1992 Buick LeSabre but cannont figure out where orifice tube goes. Auto supply stroe said it attaches to dryer but I don't see where.


Its usually in the high side tube you have to look for some small knurl marks that hold the orfice in place,its always where a hose connects so you can get to it but be careful cause they can be hard to get out if its stuck but they make special tools to reomve them if its stuck,use good needle nose plyers.let me know if you need more info have a good day DB
