it is located in the high pressure AC line at the AC evaporator core inlet. The high pressure line is the smaller of the two AC lines that come from the AC compressor on the engine..

SOURCE: A/C Orifice Tube on Sunfire

Pontiac has bad habit of moving them around on us. 
Example: on the 2000 Sunfire it is at the outlet of the condenser up near the front of the car. On the 1998 it is on the high pressure line right as it enters the firewall.
Therefore I am comfortable in saying that you will find it in the outlet of the condenser up near the front of the car.I recommend that if you are doing this repair yourself, ensure you replace the o-ring on the line itself with a new one. 
 Thank you for your question and good luck.

Show me where the orifice tube located


Same post again? Look at two AC pipes entering heater box. One is low side (large) and one is high side (smaller). Disconnect the high side pipe union and inside the pie going into heater box is the orifice tube.

Where is the orifice tube located?


The orifice tube replaces the typical expansion valve in your A/C system. It is located in the condenser outlet pipe, which is the high pressure side of the system.
I hope this helps,

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.
