SOURCE: air condition

Check the cooling system, particularly the radiator to make sure it is not partially plugged. Additionally, check the radiator fan for proper operation. If the engine temperature is running way above normal, some of the heat is transferred to the air-conditioning condenser, which causes the air-conditioner to lose efficiency. As for your question about a "limiter" switch, there is a high-pressure switch in the air-conditioning system that cuts the compressor out when the pressure gets too high.

SOURCE: air condition

most of the times the low side cycling sw come allready adjust but sometimes needs adjustment i wil recomend to have the car recover evacuated and recharge with right amount of refrigerant because having the right amount makes the diference and make sure the low cycling sw is adjust the low side sw is designed to prevent low presure going under 28 psi and to prevent freezing on the evaporator, if evaporator freeze then it blocks the airflow going to dash board.

LOCATION OF ORIFICE TUBE ON A 96 MERCURY VILLAGER 3.3L


The orifice is located in the small tube going in the firewall on the passenger side of the vehicle. You will need a special tool to unlock the tube to get to the orifice. Good idea to wear safety glasses when working on air conditioners. Good luck.

What is the purpose, and what is the proper location of the orifice tube in the air conditioning system on my 1991 chevy silverado?


The orifice tube restricts the flow of refrigerant to the evaporator. This restriction allows high pressure liquid freon to change into low pressure freon before entering the evaporator. The orifice tube is located inside the hose running between the condenser and the evaporator. You'll need an orifice tube removal kit if you are looking to remove it.

It is located inside the condensor tube running to the evaporator.

Here are the removal/installation instructions as per alldata:

J 39400-A Halogen Leak Detector
J 26549-E Orifice Tube Remover

REMOVAL PROCEDURE
-Recover the refrigerant. Refer to Refrigerant Recovery and Recharging.
-Remove the air cleaner assembly.
-Remove the vacuum brake booster.
-Remove the condenser tube.
-Use J 26549-E in order to remove the expansion orifice tube. IMPORTANT: DO NOT use any solvents or chemicals to clean the porous plastic inlet filter of the expansion orifice tube.
-Inspect the expansion orifice tube for the following conditions and clean or replace with a new tube as indicated:
-Broken plastic frame (1); replace the tube.
Inlet filter (3) damaged or plugged with fine gritty material; replace the tube.
Inlet filter (3) coated with metal chips, flakes, or slivers; remove the coating with low pressure shop air ONLY and reuse if the filter is cleaned satisfactorily. Do NOT reuse the O-ring seals (2).

How do I install the air conditioner orfice tube when I took apart the joint and there was no orifce tube and the new one does not slide in all the way.


You are not looking in the right place, it is either in the lower metal line out at the condenser with the 45 degree angle, or it is further up on that sme line where it connects and there will be demples in the line about three inches from the connection to hold the orifice tube in place and you should use an orifice tube extraction tool to remove it, and be sure not to break the end off of the orifice tube trying to remove it with needle-nose pliars because then it will really become difficult to remove. Here are a couple of diagrams that should help you out.

Recover the refrigerant. Remove the engine air cleaner.Remove the vacuum brake booster. Remove the condenser tube. Remove the expansion (orifice) tube: Use needle-nose pliers in order to grip the orifice tube. Use a turning motion along with a push-pull motion in order to loosen the impacted orifice tube. Remove the orifice tube.
Important: DO NOT use any solvents or chemicals to clean the expansion (orifice) tube porous plastic inlet filter. Inspect the expansion (orifice) tube for the following conditions and clean or replace with a new tube as indicated: Broken plastic frame, Inlet filter damaged or plugged with fine gritty material, replace tube. Inlet filter coated with metal chips, flakes, or slivers; coating may be removed with low pressure shop air ONLY and reused if cleaned satisfactorily. If reusing the tube, discard the O-ring seals and replace. This is from the gm service CD manual. keep me posted and good luck

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
