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

Red's Auto Repair LLC

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 Red's Auto Repair LLC, 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.

Being frustrated with the service and prices I have incurred at the local Mercedes Benz dealers, I decided to bring my two Mercedes to Kevin. I can not over emphasize what a pleasant, productive experience this has been for me. Kevin , the owner of Red's, is honest, trustworthy and extremely capable. He has maintained and repaired my ML350 And S Class sedan for some time. He has all the necessary tools and equipment to properly service my vehicles. His diagnostic skills are exceptional. Equally important is the fact that I am actually saving money bringing my cars to Red's. There are have been several occasions when a reminder popped up in my vehicle alerting me to a potential problem. Kevin has checked the issue and corrected it without charging me. Try doing that at Mercedes Benz. His prices are reasonable, his work is perfection, and most important, you can trust him.

Kevin was awesome! I was in need of a new mechanic because I felt like my current mechanic didn't have time or patience for me. Red's was able to get me in last minute for an inspection, but more than that was the time he invested in showing me the work that needed done to the point that I was able to "get it". I never felt pressured or rushed. Sadly because of the amount of work needing done, I ended up trading in my car for a leased car that is covered under warranty. That means I can't use Red's again, but I can and have referred friends and family there. Fantastic customer service from a knowledgeable mechanic in a beautiful and accommodating shop! 10/10!!
