Replace Your Car's AC Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube

Your car or truck's AC system is under extreme pressure and the thermal expansion valve or orifice tube monitors the amount of pressure and the temperature of your A/C system. It calculates the precise amount of refrigerant that can safely go into the evaporator. A failing expansion valve or orifice tube often causes a vehicle's air conditioner to blow hot air.

Replace or Repair

  • Expansion Valves: Too much refrigerant causes your evaporator to get too cold whereas too little refrigerant would result in inadequate cooling. The expansion valve is a complex valve that regulates refrigerant flow. This process of metering the refrigerant adjusts the flow according to the temperature of the refrigerant in the evaporator coil. Talk to one of the pro mechanics at The Auto Center of South Orlando Inc., as this part can be replaced on its own and does not require the entire replacement of the AC assembly.
  • Orifice Tubes: Unlike the expansion valve, the orifice tube is a simple fixed device with no moving parts. It therefore cannot vary the flow of refrigerant into the evaporator, but rather causes a permanent restriction in the system. However, like the expansion valve the orifice tube regulates refrigerant flow through the system and filters debris which may come through in its screen. Often fixing a "bad orifice tube" requires replacing the entire evaporator assembly.

    John Dyer is probably the best mechanic in the world !!! I take my vehicles to him if I am having a problem or just routine maintenance. They always do a good job no matter what I need.

    They saved my butt big time! My boyfriend filled my diesel car full of gas on a Saturday afternoon, and everyone we tried to contact to fix the problem just didn't care or talked to me like I was stupid. But, the guy towing my car pulled up to the shop my insurance company sent me to, and it was closed. So we found this shop. The owner stayed open just for me so I wouldn't be stranded 6 hours away from home for an additional 2 days!! He called a personal friend to see if they could get the gas out of my car, and they came to US!! About 2 hours later, my car was completely fixed, and they didn't rip us off at all. This shop saved the day, and I owe them MANY thanks.

    We were on our way back to Ohio and had a coolant leak but didn't know where it was coming from. I pulled into their drive as they were closing and he took the time to find out where the leak was and had it fixed up and running in under 30 minutes and we were back on the road and the best part was he was the nicest guy about it even tho I came at closing time and it was extremely inexpensive. I can't thank you enough John Dyer. 6 out of my 5 stars in my opinion, I highly recommend them!!
