AC 2002 Ford Taurus SE

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

Diagram of location of the orifice tube on a 2002 ford escort


The tube is at the inlet to the evaporator core at the engine bulkhead. Disconnect the smaller of the 2 AC lines to locate it. In the picture below the line that you need to disconnect is the lower one in the picture of the AC compressor hose assembly.

How to replace the oriface tube on a 2001 ford windstar


Remove condenser-to-evaporator refrigerant line. Separate line to expose fixed orifice tube. Pour small amount of clean refrigerant oil into cavity to aid removal. Engage Fixed Orifice Tube Remover/Replacer), hold tool body and turn "T" handle to draw out fixed orifice tube. To install, reverse removal procedure. Use new "O" rings coated with clean refrigerant oil.

05 taurus orifice tube location




  • To replace the orifice tube ---
  1. Remove the washer and overflow bottle. The high side service port is on a pipe about eight inches long to make it easier for service. The fitting and orifice tube are near this pipe. The fitting is covered with a protective rubber cover that makes it hard to see the fitting.
  2. Push the cover back.
  3. Disconnect the fitting.
  4. Replace the orifice tube.
  5. Lubricate the new o-ring and torque the fitting to 18 foot pounds.
  • Ford says to use a special too to get the orifice tube out of the hose. I find needle nose pliers gets the job done real well unless it is really stuck then use the tool.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
