Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
Need a diagram or drawing of where I would put a replacement orifice tube. I recently replaced my AC comressor and am having trouble recharging my unit due to a blocked orifice tube or so im told. The system will not allow the refrigant to go through.
I believe the orifice tube on this model requires the a/c pipe to be cut to install a new tube. You need to discharge the system, replace the tube, then evacuate miosture with a vacuum pump, then recharge with R134A refirgerant. Not a job for a non technical person.
The oriifce is in the line just before the evaporator that is in your car a/c heater case. It is where the liquid refrigerant turns into a vapor as it comes out of the orifice and then it absorbs heat from the air going into you car, thus blowing cold air. Moisutre in the warm air condenses and as he iar gets cold and it drains out of your evaporator and out the drain & onto the ground
