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 Beiler's Auto Repair 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.

    I was 45 miles away from home and needed a tire repaired.

    I really can?t overstate how good this place is. I have a 2004 Tahoe and I am the original owner and it?s been a good reliable vehicle for the most part. I have had some good experiences generally at other shops but I came to Beiler's Auto on reputation alone. I can honestly say I am glad I did. Needless to say after 18 years that the truck is going to have to have some stuff fixed occasionally. So the first time I brought it to Beiler's Was for a power steering pump. They were able to fix the issue without needing to replace the pump. I had them do some preventative work at the same time. The total bill was less than I would?ve paid at a dealer just to replace the power steering pump. I had a couple electrical problems after that that they were able to quickly diagnose and get me back on the road while keeping my bill at a minimum. And most recently I needed a new starter which they replaced with a part with a 2 year warranty for about half of what I would?ve paid at the dealer. Basically the one thing I can say about Beilers Auto Repair is that you can trust them. That?s a rare thing nowadays.

    Beiler's saved me 50% on my repair bills. Did not attempt to up sell. Had repairs done to my Lexus and Kia autos and the job was done on time and no bad surprises when picking up the car. Will use Beiler's from now on!!

    Been doing business with them for over 25 years. Had a tire problem today, dropped off car in the AM for a actual Friday appointment. They had it fixed this afternoon verses Friday. Priced very reasonable. Best place in town. Had another issue today - a year after my last review - Have to say - They are the best place in town. Highly recommend!

    Wow! I came here from an emergency recommendation and was blown away! I came in with no appointment on a busy day and the owner took the time out of his day to take a ride with me to try and figure out what was wrong with my car - as it was rattling and shaking very badly! The owner immediately figured out the issue and went straight to work on fixing the problem! He was professional, knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor! I know I found my new car mechanic! Thank you!!!!
