I don't think you can put the orifice in backwards. Because of its coned shape it may only fit one way. Although if it were to be in backwards then the gasket would not be set so the liquid would slip around the orifice hole and therefore it would not flash off correctly. You will probably see problems on the blue suction gauge. It would give you symptoms of flooding at the indoor coil.

My 2002 gmc sierra a/c blows cool not cold. Compressor cycles but seems to do so too fast. Evaporater cold but on other side of orfice tube is ambient temp. I have replced orfice tube. Freon is full.


Sounds like expansion valve(orifice tube) was installed backwards, it is directional. When Freon is full, suction line(Low Side) should sweat all the way back to the compressor. Also a new dryer would not hurt.

Air conditioning is weak


I will explain a few things about air conditioning and a possible rework using a $12 part. An orifice tube is part of some Air conditioners. The cheap ones are $3, but a self-adjust orifice for areas of 105 Degree heat are available. If done with a Freon Recovery machine, Freon costs will be minimal. It takes a special tool to change the part, but you could get the High Temp orifice online and find a place to switch it. Vacuum pumping is advised before refill.
Second, the best amount of Freon is a moderate charge. You have 2 cut-off switches one for low and one for high. This means the compressor will cut off when either extreme is reached. The recommended amount of Freon fill is what the Factory has determined. So many ounces per Label.
Air flow. You could just have a blocked Air flap under the dash or a Solenoid that is not turning the flap fully open. What you could do is try a used car on a lot and see how the blower works.
Fan speed resistor. If you have Digital Climate Control, this is an almost infinite speed regulator. Part of it could be burned out and even if the duct flaps are working properly, you won't get the push out of the system. Or it may have a part called a Solar switch which works with Climate Control and the other switches.
So if the Shop checked the Freon charge and it was Okay, there are still the additional items I mentioned which can affect the performance of the Air Conditioner. Again, check car lots for used cars to start up and check A/C performance.

HE heat pump won't talk with old air handler?


The fact is, the air handler supplies the voltage, blower, and electric heat. In order for the heat pump to work correctly, the wiring from the thermostat and heat pump need to be hooked up right to the air handler. The thermostat is what tells which component to come on. If the fan stops, but the condenser keeps going, you either have a faulty fan relay on the air handler, faulty thermostat or wiring, faulty wiring at the heat pump, or the contacts on the new unit are sticking, which is highly doubtful considering it is working now. I hope I have helped you understand this a little more. Good luck and don't let them push you around, get someone that knows what they are looking at.

My 1995 Chevy Silverado blows cool air then warm air. It goes back and forth between cool and warm.


You have a flow restriction,the orifice tube,(inline filter) on the low side(suction)a/c hose.Check close by the dryer and lines for freezing over,if so evacuate,then flush a/c system,install new orifice tube and recharge with new oil and freon.

2005 dodge stratus took a recharge for the ac and worked for only a few days. Then tried to put some in with a dye and it didnt take any. Does this mean that it is full and the compressor went out? Or...


YOU SHOULD ALWAYS USE A GAUGE WHEN ADDING FREON.IF IT DIDN'T LEAK OUT YOU MAY HAVE A RESTRICTION WHICH IS NOT ALLOWING THE FREON TO FLOW.YOUR HOT SIDE N COLD SIDE ADAPTORS ARE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE TOWARDS THE FRONT WALL.YOU MAY HAVE TO VAC. DOWN THE LINES AND CHANGE THE ORIFICE TUBES

What is the purpose, and what is the proper location of the orifice tube in the air conditioning system on my 1991 chevy silverado?


The orifice tube restricts the flow of refrigerant to the evaporator. This restriction allows high pressure liquid freon to change into low pressure freon before entering the evaporator. The orifice tube is located inside the hose running between the condenser and the evaporator. You'll need an orifice tube removal kit if you are looking to remove it.

Ac cycles on 92 blazer ,new compressor,low switch bad?


Did you replace the dryer,and the orifice tube?If the orifice tube was not replaced,this is most likely the problem,what are the pressures while it is running,and how much freon is in the system?If the system does not have enough freon it it,it will do this,but if it does,the cycling ac compressor is because of the orifice tube,if the system was not flushed out,and there was a new orifice tube installed ,then it is stopped up again.Let me know something so I can help.

Where is the expansion valve located on a 98 Grand Am 3.1?


Grand Am has an expansion valve. Link below has part number and picture of what you are looking for.
http://www.discountacparts.com/addtocart~year~1998~make~Pontiac~model~Grand_AM~descript~A-C_Compressor~part~60-40281.asp

Unfortunately, I do not know precisely. But for the most part auto a/c's are all the same. Below I will describe how to find it. I have also included a aguide to determine system operability that may or may not be helpful. Just trace the system with flow path described below the valve has to be between condensor and evaporator.

Reminder the flow for the a/c system is :
1. From the compressor a high pressure (HP) gas goes to the condenser in front of the radiator.
2. From the condenser a HP liquid goes to an expansion device (orifice tube or expansion valve)
3. From expansion device the low pressure gas enters the firewall to the evaporator.
4. From evaporator the low pressure liquid/gas mixture goes through the dryer2_bing.gif back to the compressor suction.

Below is a guide to troubleshoot and check system function. This can be done by most folks.

Look at the front of the ac compressor and have someone turn on the ac from inside the car. The front of the pulley(clutch) will spin when turned on.

If it does not spin, the low pressure switch (LPS) is not satisfied. Meaning there is not enough freon in the system to operate the system. Means low freon capicity because of a leak.

The LPS can be jumpered to cause the compressor to run (clutch to engaged) which will draw the freon in the system.

The LPS is usually a two wire sensor on the suction of the compressor. (between evaporator and compressor) Unplug the sensor and install a jumper, this will engage the clutch. Connect a new can of freon
and fill to system capacity.

The capacity of the ac system will be on a label under the hood, do not overfill. Probably about 2 lbs. Local parts stores (Auto Zone and Advance) will have freon with stop leak. This may help the leak. They also make a freon with a UV dye. I always add a single can with dye so that if stop leak does not work I can find the leak in the future.

The system should be filled until suction pressure is about 30 to 38 psi..
