Does what they said it would do. AC is now as cold during idle as it is during cruising.

      Make sure you READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. You may be required to trim some of the fins to match you old part. This is easy to do with a utility knife.

      • Q:

        does the 1997 windstar have two orifices? front and back?

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          A 1997 Ford Windstar has only one Orifice/Expansion tube. Release the Windstar's hood latch. Open and secure the hood. Look toward the center of the engine compartment and locate two sets of aluminum pipes. The larger of the two pipes is the low-pressure line. The thinner is the high-pressure line. Follow the high-pressure line to the evaporator. At the end of the line is the orifice tube.

          A:

          I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

          A:

          This is an orifice tube that is part of your AC system that changes high pressure liquid to low pressure liquid.

          Answered on 7/9/2010 by Kevin from AAP
        • A:

          Improves AC cooling mainly at idle in severely hot conditions. This one is intended for 105 degrees & up (think AZ). It replaces
          the standard orifice which doesn't adjust for very hot idle conditions (like at a traffic light).

          A:

          You will need to locate it in your A/C system and the use the special quick disconnect tools to take the line off that it is located in. Once you remove the line, use a pair of needle nose pliers to remove and replace the orifice tube. Then put everything back together just as you took it off.
