The orifice tube is located on the a/c line coming out of the condenser. It is the lower line.

Where is the AC expansion valve on a 2002 thunderbird


expansion valves are located at the inlet to the evaporator of the ac under dash
it is used to allow the liquid freon to expand as gas and so operate the evaporator
unless you have a problem of contamination in the ac system ( air / water) there is seldom a problem with TX valves
it is controlled by the thermostat so that is most likely where the problem will be

Where is the expansion valve located? The air conditioner is blowing hot air in front and rear units. I did put two cans of fr-ion.


Is the system full of freon ?
The rear ac uses an expansion valve, and the front ac uses an orifice tube. One system can work independently of the other.

Trying to replace a rear ac expansion valve for a 2000 dodge durango 4.7 but dont know exactly were it is. Or how to get replace it


Hi,
The expansion valve is located in the evaporator core, it is a brass made metal w/ temperature sensor tubing. Getting that expansion valve requires you to pull down the entire rear A/C blower box.
Am just curious, why are you replacing that valve?
An A/C tech will be better to do that job so that he will clean also the entire system and freon charging.
Hope that helps you out!

AC problem with 2001 Montana passenger van


Did you replace the expansion valve?
Also try adding just a little more freon and see if that makes a difference....is there a sight glass you can view with the system activated to be sure you have it completely air free?

Hey I am haveing a problem with My 2500HD ac system. I have changed The Condensor, evaporator, and the Compressor. I have charged it to the correct levels. It blows cool air, but it doesn't get cold....


Did you change the Receiver/ Drier and the Orfice Tube/ Expansion Valve? The Receiver/ Drier takes moisture out of the system and the Orfice Tube/ Expansion Valve controls the Hot/ Cold air. If that is bad it may not be opening or closing fully which would not let your A/C get as cool as it supposed to.

Same problem


Check for ac low pressure switch gone bad.If the expansion valve goes bad it will cause that problem,also, make sure there is enough freon in system.If you could get some one to put ac gauges on the vehicle you could tell a lot about the system,It would tell if the low side was too low(bad expansion valve)or if it was too high on the low side or high side (bas expansion valve or block dryer or condenser.

Ok hear we go agian 2000 ford taurs 3.0 lit no a/c when i jump the compressor with a jumper wire. it works fine and i checked the high side swtich it works fine and the low side works ok to.


There are 3 likely problems:
  1. system could be air locked; when recharged, its possible more air than refrigerant was pumped into the system
  2. clogged or bad expansion valve
  3. AC clutch is bad; although it will engage when you jump it, the clutch could still be bad preventing it from engaging when you turn on the AC
Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.
