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 Superior Auto Care, 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.

    This was my first experience at Superior. Shane, the manager, greeted me, and listened attentively to what I needed done. In a timely fashion, Shane called me and shared with me what needed to be done with my car. The estimate was clear, and fairly priced. When I arrived to pick up the car, I was a little early. All of the mechanics, dropped what they were doing, to help finish up my car. The mechanics were very professional, personable, and quickly finished my car. This garage was an A+ experience. Oh, and the quality of work was superior!!

    My clutch burnt out on my VW Jetta on a sat. I had my car towed to Superior on a strong recommendation of a friend. Monday morning, Manny the outstanding manager had an super reasonable estimate for me. I told him I’m an Uber driver and needed my car fix ASAP as it’s how I provide for myself. With all the challenges of parts etc Team Manny got it done in a few days. He has an outstanding staff of Jose the mechanic that work on my car along with Frank. I strongly urge you to consider Superior and Team Manny for you car needs
