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 Revolution Imports Auto Repair, 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.

    Went here based on the good reviews and made a great choice. The service was almost half of what was proposed to me by the dealer. And very competitive with other mechanics in the area. They had great customer service, gave me a fair price and the best part was how fast they were. My car was ready next day exactly when they said it would be ready. Plus they gave me a complimentary car wash under the hood and all around. Will definitely recommend and come again in the future.

    Recently my BMW 328i was at another shop getting gaskets replaced, I had to take it back after they cracked the valve. In the process of them redoing it, one of my coolant hose was put on the wrong way & my alternator started eating the hose causing coolant leak. I refused to take it back & instead brought it to Fabian at revolution imports. He was able to point out what happened & got the issue fixed next day. I wish I would've brought my car in sooner!! Fair prices & most importantly honest, reliable work.
