      Can't say it is an exact replacement. Opened lines to remove old one and found there wasn't one. Anyway it works.

            A:

            The orifice tube on your GMC Sonoma should be either at the condenser or in the evaporator. Follow the little line and at the metal connections there should be a dot stamped on one of them, that is where the orfice tube is. On rare occasions you have to pull the condensor of the dash to replace the tube.

            A:

            This ACDelco Air Conditioning Evaporator Tube Orifice with part# 15-5151 is an orifice tube or also called as an expansion valve. In an A/C system, the refrigerant/freon goes through different pressures and forms, such as vapor and liquid. The orifice tube is basically a dividing point in the a/c system where high pressure liquid freon, turns into low pressure liquid freon.

            A:

            The orifice tube should be located in the inlet tube of the evaporator, or in the liquid line, somewhere between the outlet of the condenser and the inlet of the evaporator.

        • Q:

          Part#'s 15-5151 and 15-5754. Which one does my 1990 chevy caprice use for a r-12 system. Both parts come up on the coputer. What's the difference? Would the orrifice tube be different for r-12 and r-134?
          Asked on 6/3/2010 by steve from thomson,ga

          1 answer

          • A:

            Your Caprice would use the white one. If you are using R134A I would use a blue Ford one. Just look up a 1995 Ford Ranger and you will find the blue one when you look them up. R134A and the white orifice tube left a lot to be desired.
