Hello lindabg68: My name is Roger and I can answer your question for you. First make sure the system has no pressure. Locate the high side refrigerant line that comes up from the bottom of the condenser. Not the top line. Remove the bolt holding the line together. You should see the orifice tube in the long side of this tube. Please rate the quality of your answer. This is how we know you received the correct information. Should you need more help please just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

Pontiac has bad habit of moving them around on us. 
Example: on the 2000 Sunfire it is at the outlet of the condenser up near the front of the car. On the 1998 it is on the high pressure line right as it enters the firewall.
Therefore I am comfortable in saying that you will find it in the outlet of the condenser up near the front of the car.I recommend that if you are doing this repair yourself, ensure you replace the o-ring on the line itself with a new one. 
 Thank you for your question and good luck.

Does a 2005 Pontiac Sunfire have a PCV valve?


Crankcase Ventilation System Description
A crankcase ventilation system is used to consume crankcase vapors in the combustion process instead of venting them to atmosphere. Fresh air from the intake system is supplied to the crankcase, mixed with blow by gases and then passed through a calibrated orifice into the intake manifold.
The primary control is through the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) orifice which meters the flow at a rate depending on inlet vacuum. The PCV orifice is an integral part of the camshaft cover. If abnormal operating conditions occur, the system is designed to allow excessive amounts of blow by gases to back flow through the crankcase vent into the intake system to be consumed by normal combustion.

Where is the orifice tube on a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire


Real simple

If you knew anything at all about any type
of a/c system,you would know that any Orifice
Tube or THX Valve, has to be at the entrance
to the evaporator, in order to boil off refrigerant
& make the evavporator cold

You won't have any need to clean or replace the
orifice tube

Once you open the sytem you polute the atmosphere
& will need to leak test,pull a vacuum & recharge the system

You need the services of a trained a/c mechanic with
the required equipment to work on a/c

Either the fill hose is kinked or an object is stuck inside the tube. someone needs to go under the vehicle and remove the fill hose from the filler neck (1 hose clamp) and see if they can remove the object/s.
