Check the lines coming out of the condenser . One of them has a crimped spot,that is where the orifice is located. Good luck.

2002 Chrysler 300 has an expansion valve instead of an orifice tube which is used to meter the flow of refridgerant. It is located on the firewall attached to the AC manifold hose assembly 4e13a00d-e237-447d-9c7e-ef4684c71d0b.jpg 452a74e8-1d11-479f-9e19-3d118dc43633.jpg

Need to change or clean out Orpheus tube. replaced hoses and compressor every thing check out good but after running ac for a while the clutch fan wont stay ingadge was told it could be a clogged Orpheus...


If the compressor cycles (turns on and off) frequently, and the AC is just cool, then you are likely low on freon. Did you evacuate (pull a vacuum) the system before charging it with freon? This will also cause your problem. The orifice tube is located within a high pressure hose near the radiator or the firewall. Look for diameter size differences in the lines at connections.

Where is the freeon filter for the rear ac


hi, if i am correct, this vehicle does not have a filter for the freon in the rear a/c system. the front a/c compressor produces the pressure and suction for the rear system and there is a filter/drier called an accumulator. also there is another filter called an orifice tube. both of these items are located near the passenger firewall. the accumulator is a larger aluminum cylinder which has two hoses going to it from the compressor, and the orifice tube is located inside the high pressure discharge hose assembly near the condensor(mounted in front of the radiator). but, as far as the rear a/c goes, this vehicle uses an evaporator expansion valve for the rear a/c on most models. now, if i'm wrong, and there is actually an orifice tube in the rear, you would find it inside the hose at the very rear, near the exhaust tailpipe on the passenger side. you would have to discharge the whole system to inspect. might want to take to a shop, good luck.

Where, exactly, is the orifice tube located on my truck?


the orfice tube is locate in the line between condenser and evaporator. near the spring lock coupling. you must unbolt the cruise servo and overflow bottle, reposition them out of way and you will see the line connection..the orfice is inside line near that uniion. the ac system must be evacuated prior to removal, and recharged afterwards..
