My 2002 gmc sierra a/c blows cool not cold. Compressor cycles but seems to do so too fast. Evaporater cold but on other side of orfice tube is ambient temp. I have replced orfice tube. Freon is full.


Sounds like expansion valve(orifice tube) was installed backwards, it is directional. When Freon is full, suction line(Low Side) should sweat all the way back to the compressor. Also a new dryer would not hurt.

Where exactly is the orifice tube on a 1987 chevrolet g30 van?


Its a liquid line an start from condenser to evaporator. Following the small line you will find connection before the evaporator and the pipe have marks about 3 in.from the connection. Evacuate the freon and disconnect the pipe. You will need special tool to remove the office tube or nidell nose plier. Twist and pull till the orfice tube is out. If the tube brake insert long wood screw and pull . Worst case ask your auto parts store for repair kit. Is 5in. Replacement set. Cut the pipe and install the new one. Very carefully follow the direction of the new orfice tube. Vacuum the system and recharge.
Good luck

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.

How to install a air conpressor for 1995 jeep grand cherokee


Installing a compressor is a complex job there is alot more to just braking the lines and removing the bolts to the compressor and if you are not sure you really should leave it to a service department.I will tell you to proper steps. First you need to have the system evacuated of freon before you can break the lines.Then if you are installing a new compressor you will need to also purchase the accumilator as well as orfice tube or expansion valve wich ever the case may be. Alot of places will not warranty the compressor unless you change out the accumilator as well as the orfice tube or expasion valve. While you are changing these parts out also change out the orings associated with each part. You will also want to buy A/C flush and flush out the entire A/C system once you have done this begain to assemble the parts but dont forget to oil the compressor and accumilator and put some in the condensor. once the parts have been assembled then you need to have the system vacumed out of all moisture. This is crucial or you will have premature compressor failer. Once the system is vacumed its time to recharge make sure you hook up to the right line when charging the system as hooking to the wrong line will cause your can to burst assuming you are using small cans to recharge.charge only the required amount of freon do not over charge. If your comprssor locked up make sure its the compressor and not the compressor clutch lot less expensive to replace it. Also if its not blowing cold air and only cool air it could be orfice tube plugged up.

There is an orfice in the line somewhere but I am not sure just where its located .. I would imagine that orfice tube is starting to plug off and it will work sometimes and sometimes not .. that trash in the orfice tube moves around and lets freon by sometimes.. the orfice is also like a screen device and needs replaced.. thanks jerry
