I believe the orifice tube on this model requires the a/c pipe to be cut to install a new tube. You need to discharge the system, replace the tube, then evacuate miosture with a vacuum pump, then recharge with R134A refirgerant. Not a job for a non technical person.

The oriifce is in the line just before the evaporator that is in your car a/c heater case. It is where the liquid refrigerant turns into a vapor as it comes out of the orifice and then it absorbs heat from the air going into you car, thus blowing cold air. Moisutre in the warm air condenses and as he iar gets cold and it drains out of your evaporator and out the drain & onto the ground

Check the lines coming out of the condenser . One of them has a crimped spot,that is where the orifice is located. Good luck.

R-12 isn't designed to work in an vehicle so I have no idea what to tell you there. R-22 was used in vehicles but is not available to the general public without a license which cost more than the R-134 conversion kit.

How to change a ac orifice tube on a 2004 mercury monterey

Evacuate the system. Disconnect the AC line at the evaporator inlet. Remove orifice tube. Pull a vacuum and recharge. But, if the orifice tube is plugged, you're most likely wasting your time. You'll have to flush the entire system and see what comes out. In most cases you have to replace the condenser and accumulator as well. Whatever plugged the orifice tube will just re-plug it once you replace it

Where is the orifice tube on my 2004 gmc envoy xl air conditioner system

Not sure specifically on that model but if you follow the line from the compressor to the condensor then out of the condensor to the evaporator it will be between the condensor and evaporator usually the tube is wraped in plastic but it could be in the heater box itself also if you have rear ac the rear unit uses a thermal expansion valve on the rear evaporator not an orifice tube. What is your concern thats leading you to find the orifice tube if your dont mind me asking

The tube is located at the high pressure inlet tube of the AC evaporator core at the rear of The engine compartment, the AC line that is small and high pressure goes to the connection point, remove the line after recovering the charge and inside is the tube.

Where is the freeon filter for the rear ac

hi, if i am correct, this vehicle does not have a filter for the freon in the rear a/c system. the front a/c compressor produces the pressure and suction for the rear system and there is a filter/drier called an accumulator. also there is another filter called an orifice tube. both of these items are located near the passenger firewall. the accumulator is a larger aluminum cylinder which has two hoses going to it from the compressor, and the orifice tube is located inside the high pressure discharge hose assembly near the condensor(mounted in front of the radiator). but, as far as the rear a/c goes, this vehicle uses an evaporator expansion valve for the rear a/c on most models. now, if i'm wrong, and there is actually an orifice tube in the rear, you would find it inside the hose at the very rear, near the exhaust tailpipe on the passenger side. you would have to discharge the whole system to inspect. might want to take to a shop, good luck.

Front ac is blowing cold air but rear ac is blowing hot what is problem

More than likely this is the rear orifice tube(or rear metering block) same concept.This invloves evacuating the ac and removing the orifice tube and repl;acing it.This is just normal maint that is accustomed to this vehicle.Please get back to me with any more questions...thanks!!!

The front A/C blows cold but the back A/C is not. the condenser is not even getting cold

The rear ac has an orifice tube. This restricts the flow of freon.if orifice tube is blown through or the little screen is plugged with compressor debris it will not work correctly. Some ac systems use a expansion valve same purpose but the little valve can get stuck open and just allow freon to flow through.
