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 Elite Auto Repair & Service Inc #2, 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.

    I'm new to the area and was referred to this business by my car leasing company. From the time my appointment was confirmed with a phone call from Mr. Manny I knew this was a great choice to go with. He assured me that they will help me with my situation and Elite did exactly that!! All the guys were great , knowledgeable, and professional. My daughter and I waited in a room that had computers where she was able to stay occupied for the time we waited. Jose and Johnathan was just as pleasant. They all played a huge role in getting my car back on the road. I could really write a chapter on my experience there and how much I appreciate this business. Never had I felt so comfortable being in an Auto Repair shop prior to coming to Elite! I live 35 mins away and it will be worth my drive to return to them for future services. I highly recommend them!! Thank you so much John, Manny, & Jose!!! You guys know the detail behind my visit and I'm still grateful for ya'll kindness and services!!
