Look where the dryer is,it is in a small ac liquid line under the dryer,it will be where two lines go together with a nut,the orifice tube is in a swelled place in the line,near the nut,remove it with a pair of needle nose pliers,and install it the same way.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Hey everybody. I need to change ac expansion valve on 2004 trailblazer. Does anybody have pics or schematic on location of this


This vehicle doesn't use an expansion valve. It uses an expansion orifice tube. It's located in the liquid line going into the evaporator.

Newer units don't use an expansion valve, but instead just an orifice tube, usually located in the junction of the high side hose to the evaporator under the hood.

Chevy malibu 2005 3.5 a/c orface tube location


Yours has a

thermal expansion valve (TXV). no orifice tube . look at fire wall where the a/c pipes go in look for this part .



The thermal expansion valve is located in the liquid line between the condenser and the evaporator. The thermal expansion valve is the dividing point for the high and the low pressure sides of the A/C system. As the refrigerant passes through the thermal expansion valve, the pressure of the refrigerant is lowered. Due to the pressure differential of the liquid refrigerant, the refrigerant will begin to vaporize at the thermal expansion valve. The thermal expansion valve also meters the amount of liquid refrigerant that can flow into the evaporator.

Where is the orifice tube located on 88 buick park avenue


Inspect/Test/Replace To raise pressure, there must be a restriction in the air conditioning system. The restriction divides the system into the high side and the low side. The terms high side and low side refer to the high pressure and low pressure within the system.
The flow control can be either an orifice tube or a metering device called an expansion valve. A thermostatic expansion valve controls the amount of refrigerant that is allowed to flow to the evaporator. A temperature sensing bulb on the evaporator inlet controls the expansion valve.
  • A bad expansion valve will cause low readings on both the low and high side.
  • Failure of the sensing bulb is the most common problem.
  • Sometimes the valve can become plugged with debris.
  • If the sensing capillary tube is warm, there is high pressure that pushes on the diaphragm.
  • The sensing bulb checks the temperature of the outlet line of the evaporator.
  • If it is warm, it opens the valve.
  • Pressure on top of the diaphragm tries to push the valve open.
  • The operation of the expansion valve can be checked.
  • Some expansion valves can be cleaned, repaired or adjusted.
f73-15a.gif This system uses an expansion valve as it's flow control device. Some expansion valves are wrapped with insulation. When the sensing bulb is in the evaporator case, it does not need to be wrapped because it stays cold. When an expansion valve is packed in that type of system, it is only to silence the noise that the evaporator makes.

CAUTION
Only EPA-certified technicians can purchase R-12 refrigerant, since proper recovery and recycling techniques are required to prevent damaging the environment. Improper disposal of R-12 refrigerant can result in a fine.

Where is the expansion valve located on a 98 Grand Am 3.1?


Grand Am has an expansion valve. Link below has part number and picture of what you are looking for.
http://www.discountacparts.com/addtocart~year~1998~make~Pontiac~model~Grand_AM~descript~A-C_Compressor~part~60-40281.asp

Unfortunately, I do not know precisely. But for the most part auto a/c's are all the same. Below I will describe how to find it. I have also included a aguide to determine system operability that may or may not be helpful. Just trace the system with flow path described below the valve has to be between condensor and evaporator.

Reminder 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.

Below is a guide to troubleshoot and check system function. This can be done by most folks.

Look at the front of the ac compressor and have someone turn on the ac from inside the car. The front of the pulley(clutch) will spin when turned on.

If it does not spin, the low pressure switch (LPS) is not satisfied. Meaning there is not enough freon in the system to operate the system. Means low freon capicity because of a leak.

The LPS can be jumpered to cause the compressor to run (clutch to engaged) which will draw the freon in the system.

The LPS is usually a two wire sensor on the suction of the compressor. (between evaporator and compressor) Unplug the sensor and install a jumper, this will engage the clutch. Connect a new can of freon
and fill to system capacity.

The capacity of the ac system will be on a label under the hood, do not overfill. Probably about 2 lbs. Local parts stores (Auto Zone and Advance) will have freon with stop leak. This may help the leak. They also make a freon with a UV dye. I always add a single can with dye so that if stop leak does not work I can find the leak in the future.

The system should be filled until suction pressure is about 30 to 38 psi..

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.

on the tube between the firewall and the a/c compressor. On some Fords the low pressure port is on the dryer2_bing.gif (aluminium cylinder). Good news is the low pressure and high pressure port are different sizes. You cannot mess it up.
