Replace Your Car's AC Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube
Speed Rolling Performance Inc
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 Speed Rolling Performance 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.

Took my 2012 Chevy Camaro RS to find a replacement tire for my punctured tire. Turns out they had my size plus wider which I was looking for anyways. Went from 2 275/45/ZR20 on my rears to a 2 285/35/ZR20 Pirelli. Used tires were almost new, excellent tread, no patches or plugs, no cracks. Installed and balanced and while I was there checked my alignment. Juan is great guy, and Sandra is very nice. They've been in business for over 2 years now! Affordable prices and huge inventory mean they got what you need. Repeat customer
