You can use the choke spray for cleaning it, if you do, remove and clean the entire tube from end to end, not just the oraface. However, this part is fairly cheap, around $10 at any automotive store, I suggest replacement.

shouldn't be plugged if you use mobil 1 and have changed regularly. Do you actually see drips/runs anywhere? It could be the valve cover gaskets themselves. Your best bet is to get the factory service manual which will give you everything in detail that is what the dealer mechanics use
Let me know if you need any further assistance.

SOURCE: I am replacing the compressor,

The orifice is always the last thing before the evaporator, which is inside the car.
It sometimes is part of the evaporator. It has to be where the thin tubing switches over to larger diameter tubing. The reason it is good to change is because it is easily plugged is there is any particles in the system. If there is water however, it will plug with ice, and replacing will not help because the water will plug a new orifice as well. Which is why a vacuum pump is important, to evaporate all the water.

Where is ac orfice on 2005 yukon ?

Most GM products have the o-tube located inside the evap metal line where the high side hose connects. Evacuate the freon, then disconnect the high side line. Look in the metal line coming out of the evaporator and there it is. These can require that you carefully screw a screw into the plastic part then use vise grips to remove. Usually, these are replaced along with the filter/dryer when recharging the system.

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.

2002 tahoe rear a/c quit working

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
