I need a installation diagram for installing a orifice tube. Removed and forget direction it goes in.

The orifice tube should have the wire screen pointing toward the compressor and not toward the evaporator because the gas is filtered through the screen before going to the evaporator.

Location of orifice tube in 2000 chevy venture

best advice is the method i would use to located the orifice tube in the 2000 chevy venture. check the automotive repair book section in your local library. Most libraries have repair manuals on their automotive shelf section. find the a/c manual for your year and model car. make a copy of the page that has the information you need. you will need to make a copy because the library will not let those manuals be checked out. you might want to google for the location of the orifice tube location. I hope this helps.

Orifice tube located

Always on the a/c low side just before
the evaporator & after the accumulator
That is assuming you have a system with those
You do realize you can't get to it without dumping
all the refrigerant & then you find nothing in the screen
& wasted your time unless you burned up a compressor

Where is on a 03 chevy malibu the A/C expansion valve

Your model does not use an expansion valve. It has an orifice tube in one of the metal lines that converts the gas to liquid.
If the orifice tube is blocked it would be at the edge of the frost.
Could also be a restricted air flow thru the radiator or the evap core inside the car.

A/c expansion valve 2000 chevrolet 1500 p/u

It has an orifice tube not an expansion valve. Follow the high side line from the firewall back to the radiator. There should be a fitting a couple bends back from the firewall. Take apart the line at that fitting and the orifice tube will be inside.

Recover the refrigerant. Remove the engine air cleaner.Remove the vacuum brake booster. Remove the condenser tube. Remove the expansion (orifice) tube: Use needle-nose pliers in order to grip the orifice tube. Use a turning motion along with a push-pull motion in order to loosen the impacted orifice tube. Remove the orifice tube.

Orifice Tube for 2000 Impala

Does it have crimp marks on the tube about 3 inches from the fitting?If so,that's where the orifice tube is.Most of the time,you simply disconnect the fitting,pull out the orifice tube & install a new one.Tip:if it has a lot of black junk on it,flush the system or you will end up having the same problem again very soon.Good luck,
