Question about 2003 Cadillac Escalade
Yes. A thermal expansion valve (often abbreviated as TXV or TX valve) is a component in refrigeration and air conditioning systems that controls the amount of refrigerant flow into the evaporator. If it is malfunctioning it will limit the amount of freon available to cool the vehicle.
However, the shop should have found this issue initially, so I would only pay for the part; not labor. Call your local dealer (Chevy Tahoe/Suburban is the same) and ask what the cost is. Price sounds high. They are avl. for under $100 online.
