Hello cptlarry: My name is Roger and I can help you. On the passenger side of the engine compartment. Locate the high side A/C line. This will be a small line called the liquid line. Follow it to the condenser located in front of the radiator. After removing the freon you can split the A/C coupling at the radiator. There are two lines split the one that goes back to the firewall. The orifice tube will be in the condenser end of the line.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of your answer as this way we know you received the correct information. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Location expansion valve

There is no expansion valve. There is an orifice tube in the high side hose where it connects to the evaporator inlet fitting. You'll have to let the freon out first to open this connection. Use needle nose pliers to grab the orifice tube. If the screen is plugged with aluminum mud, there are more serious problems with the system that will have to be addressed. Of you don't have the tools , a vacuum pump and a gauge set, I'd let a A/C shop do the job.

Where is the orifice tube on a 98 Buick LeSabre located?

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.

1996 Buick Regal air conditioning

I think you may have a clogged orifice tube (possible compressor failure starting) this can be checked with a system pressure test.
When an expansion valve or block fails, always replace the drier. Also flush the condenser and liquid lines.
